If coaches can give hints about their draft picks on Twitter, players may as well break trades there.
Jaguars defensive end Quentin Groves left the following message Wednesday afternoon:
“Duval County…. I
LOVE U GUYS…thanks for all your support…New Starts=New
Beginnings…OAKLAND HERE I COME!!!!“
Groves also changed his avatar to the Raiders insignia. No one from either team has confirmed Groves’ news, but the account has been verified previously as Groves’ account.
It’s also no surprise Groves will be an ex-Jaguar. The unproductive second round pick from 2008 has been rumored to be on his way out in Jacksonville for a while.
UPDATE: The trade has been confirmed by the Associated Press. The Jaguars got a fifth-round pick.
