Quentin Groves is set for a third tour with a Ray Horton-led defense.

The Titans have reached a deal with Groves, a veteran outside linebacker, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reported on Monday.

The 30-year-old Groves played for Horton, now the Titans’ defensive coordinator, in Arizona (2012) and Cleveland (2013). Groves spent the 2014 preseason with the Texans, who released him on Saturday.

A seventh-year pro from Auburn, Groves has recorded 157 tackles and 8.5 sacks in his NFL career. The majority of the sacks have come in Horton-run defenses the last two seasons.

Groves is likely to provide depth behind starters Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley for Tennessee, which employs a 3-4 scheme.

UPDATE 10:51 a.m. ET: With Groves arriving, the Titans are releasing another outside linebacker. The club is parting ways with Patrick Bailey, Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean reported.

    I just hope Groves is as good of a special teams player as Bailey has been for us. #TitanUp

    Why can’t this Horton guy get a long term gig? 3 teams in 3 years? Both Cards and Browns defenses were much improved under him.
