Groves, 28, measures in a 6-feet-3-inches and 225 pounds. He and new Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton spent last season together in Arizona where the linebacker was a useful reserve, tallying 46 tackles and four sacks despite starting just seven times. He played in all 16 games in 2012, and has played in no fewer than 15 during his five years in the NFL.
Groves reportedly had multiple teams interested in his services and had several visitis scheduled before agreeing to terms with the Browns. He figures to add to the edge-rushing line-backing corps of Jabaal Sheard, Chris Gocong and the newly signed Paul Kruger.
His deal with the Browns is for two years and $2.8 million, according to The Cleveland Plain Dealer.
