Jun 11 - 7:33 PM

Browns released OLB Quentin Groves and LB Larry Grant.

Groves, 30 next month, recorded four tackles and two sacks across 53 snaps last season before landing on injured reserve with an ankle injury in November. Second-year OLB Barkevious Mingo will serve as the No. 3 edge rusher behind Paul Kruger and Jabaal Sheard. Grant was just signed last month.
Jun 6 - 8:51 AM

Browns placed OLB Quentin Groves (ankle) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Groves originally went down in Week 2 and then came back to play in three more games, but his ankle isn't right. The situational pass rusher will undergo surgery and finish his first year in Cleveland with just four tackles and two sacks. Groves signed a two-year, $2.28 million contract with the Browns back in March.

Browns OLB Quentin Groves is out 4-6 weeks with a high left ankle sprain.

His absence will just mean more snaps for explosive first-rounder Keke Mingo behind Jabaal Sheard and Paul Kruger. Groves is an injured reserve candidate.

Browns OLB Quentin Groves (ankle) will not play in Sunday's Week 3 game against the Vikings.

Groves was spotted on crutches and in a walking boot Wednesday. It's a chance for first-round rookie Barkevious Mingo to excel once again. Making his NFL debut in Week 2, Mingo had two tackles, one tackle for a loss, one sack and one quarterback hurry while playing just 25-of-72 snaps.
Wed, Sep 18, 2013 10:26:00 AM

Browns OLB Quentin Groves left Sunday's Week 2 loss to the Ravens early with an ankle injury.

Groves went down while covering the second-half kickoff and did not return. X-rays were negative, but he left the stadium in a walking boot and using crutches. First-round rookie Barkevious Mingo stepped in and shined.

Browns OLB Quentin Groves has been arrested for solicitation of a prostitute.

Welcome to Cleveland. Groves, who just signed to a two-year, $2.28M deal, was allegedly caught in a sting. According to police, he responded to an advertisement and requested "full service" from an officer posing as a prostitute. They agreed on one hour for $100. Groves' court date is set for May 10.
Wed, Apr 24, 2013 11:29:00 AM

Browns agreed to terms on a two-year, $2.8 million deal with OLB Quentin Groves, formerly of the Cardinals.

Groves and new Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton spent last season together in Arizona, where Horton held the same position. Groves was a useful pass-rusher, compiling 46 tackles and four sacks despite starting just seven times. He figures to push Jabaal Sheard and Chris Gocong for snaps opposite Paul Kruger in Cleveland's 3-4 set.
Wed, Mar 13, 2013 07:22:00 AM

Free agent OLB Quentin Groves will visit the Browns.

Groves has reportedly lined up a handful of other visits, but the Browns will be the team to beat for his services because of his connection with new DC Ray Horton. Cleveland was the only team linked to Groves before free agency.
Tue, Mar 12, 2013 11:53:00 PM

The Browns are expected to show interest in free agent OLB Quentin Groves.

The number of free agents the Browns are expected to check in on is growing by the hour. With cap space to burn, it's clear Cleveland isn't going to be shy about flashing its money clip on the open market. Groves could be of particular interest because of his experience in new DC Ray Horton's 3-4 system.
Wed, Mar 6, 2013 02:25:00 PM

Cardinals OLB Quentin Groves (foot) was a in a walking boot following Sunday's win.

According to the Arizona Republic, Groves has an injury "to the plantar fasciitis." If that's the case, it's a lingering ailment that will likely knock him out for the final two games. Signed away from the Raiders in May, Groves hasn't been a difference-maker this season, but also hasn't been a liability.
Mon, Dec 17, 2012 12:00:00 PM

Cardinals signed OLB Quentin Groves.

With the relatively unproven Sam Acho and O'Brien Schofield scheduled to start at outside linebacker, the Cardinals are looking for experienced depth. Groves, a 2008 second-round pick, hasn't recorded a sack since his rookie season. He won't be guaranteed a roster spot.
Thu, May 24, 2012 05:57:00 PM

The Dolphins are expected to host DE/OLB Quentin Groves on a free agent visit.

The 52nd pick in the 2008 draft, Groves hasn't recorded a sack since his rookie season. The Dolphins are considering a hybrid defense this season, so Groves' versatility could appeal in a backup role.
Thu, Apr 5, 2012 03:37:00 PM

The Giants worked out free agent DE/LB Quentin Groves on Monday.

The G-Men like linebacker/defensive end hybrids, having had success with Mathias Kiwanuka in the role and used a second-round pick on Clint Sintim. Groves was the 52nd pick in the 2008 draft, but has had a nondescript NFL career. He's played in 63 career games, starting 22, and has only 2.5 sacks.
