Browns add Quentin Groves to Ray Horton’s defense

New Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton is bringing one of his guys to Cleveland.

Free agent linebacker Quentin Groves, who played in Horton’s defense when they were together in Arizona last year, has come to terms with the Browns, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports.

A 2008 second-round pick of the Jaguars, Groves spent two years in Jacksonville and then two years in Oakland but wasn’t a great player in either stop. In Arizona last year, however, Groves had career highs in tackles (46) and sacks (four) while playing in all 16 games and starting seven.

Now Groves will attempt to repeat that success, and he’ll give Cleveland a player who already knows the new defense.

    He came on strong at the end of last year. Was hoping he was going to stay. Don’t get the Cards front office. Losing faith right now. All I have read is cast offs and back ups getting brought in to the desert. Frustrating.

    Cleveland is adding much needed depth to the LB core this year. I’d suspect they sign TE Brandon Myers today, and a CB soon.

    NICE!..3 good signings to this point. I would love to see us pick up a starting corner and a vetern wide out. This will make the draft alot more flexible.

    Browns’ Nation we are getting there!!

    Just Sayin’…Go Brownies!!

    Asomougha is headed to Cleveland too. Just my big feeling or Cary Williams who isn’t as good but another turn of the dagger in the Raven’s side. Go Browns!

    Wowzer, he lasted 6 years in the league? That’s twice as long as his draft day partner Derek “ninja” Harvey. Who would have thought….

    The NFL winners in March never win during the real year. Proven time and time again.

    Notice, they’re signing younger guys who are already veterans and are on the upswing. Contrast that with Miami who is just signing big names left and right. This FA class is going to end up costing GM Jeff Ireland his job in about two years. And I love how silent the Cleveland “know it all” media are about what a “bust” the hire of GM Mike Lombardi was. This current regime obviously has its stuff together. Look for more signings (CB and TE) of guys coming off their rookie deals, still in their 20’s, and who fit the profile the Browns are looking for. The difference is that the Dolphins are filling a roster with big names while the Browns are building a TEAM. That difference is going to show up big time in a pretty short time. Go Browns!
