With what? Not enough detail, but silver is not very electropositive. Pretty much any compound or chemical entity can be involved in a redox reaction of some kind. The obvious redox reaction involving silver nitrate would involve silver ions being reduced to silver metal, plus some corresponding oxidation reaction.
