Bills signed OLB Quentin Groves, formerly of the Titans.

Groves was one of three veterans to work out for Buffalo on Monday. He's been bouncing around the league since being the 52nd pick in the 2008 draft. Groves has 9.5 career sacks. If he makes the team, he'll play special teams.

Titans signed OLB Quentin Groves.

Groves, 30, was cut by the Browns in June and then by the Texans on Saturday. Now he's reunited with DC Ray Horton who he played for in Arizona in 2012 and Cleveland last year. Groves will be a special teamer and reserve pass-rusher for the Titans.

Texans released OLB Quentin Groves.

Houston is thin at outside linebacker, so this doesn't speak well to what's left in Groves' tank. The former Brown turned 30 early last month.

Texans signed OLB Quentin Groves.

Groves, 30, was cut by the Browns last month and had previously worked out for the Titans, Redskins, Patriots, and Jets. While the former second-round pick never developed into an impact pass-rusher, Groves is a serviceable reserve who excels on special teams. He has a legit shot at the 53-man roster.

Free agent OLB Quentin Groves worked out for the Jets on Monday.

Groves was cut by the Browns last month and has also had workouts with the Patriots, Redskins, and Titans since. The Jets are banking on soon-to-be 34-year-old Calvin Pace and boom-bust Quinton Coples to man their starting edge rusher spots. They also seriously lack depth. Groves would by no means start, but he'd be a top reserve and contribute on special teams for Gang Green.

Free agents OLB Quentin Groves and LB Marvin Mitchell worked out for the Titans on Tuesday.

Groves, 30 next month, spent the 2012 and 2013 seasons with new Titans DC Ray Horton in Arizona and Cleveland, respectively. In Tennessee, he'd be a rotational edge player and contribute mostly on special teams. Mitchell, 29, appeared in all 16 games (starting ten) for the Vikings last season.

Free agent OLB Quentin Groves visited the Patriots on Wednesday, and will visit the Redskins on Thursday.

Groves was released by the Browns last Friday and turns 30 next month. He has 8.5 career sacks across six seasons, with six of them coming the past two years. Groves contributes mostly on special teams and in sub-packages.
Wed, Jun 11, 2014 07:33:00 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.

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.
Mon, Nov 11, 2013 12:25:00 PM

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.
Fri, Sep 20, 2013 01:13:00 PM

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.
