Quentin Groves, Tennessee Titans agree to terms

The Tennessee Titans continue to hunt for difference-makers on defense.

Quentin Groves is going to Nashville, having agreed to terms on a contract Monday, the team announced.

Call it a homecoming of sorts, with Groves serving as a known commodity to Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt and defensive coordinator Ray Horton. The seventh-year outside linebacker played under both in Arizona before following Horton to Cleveland last season. Groves has piled up six of his 8.5 career sacks in Horton's 3-4 scheme and will compete for snaps in Tennessee with Shaun Phillips and Akeem Ayers behind starters Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley.

It's no more than a patch for the Titans after Groves, 30, was cut free by a Texans team hungry for depth at the outside linebacker spot. He's a strong special teams contributor, though, and gives Tennessee some added experience as they prepare for Sunday's regular-season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs.
