The Cleveland Browns continue to add weapons to their front seven for new defensive coordinator Ray Horton and his attacking style defense to use. In the teams latest move, Horton has been reunited with former Arizona Cardinals linebacker Quentin Groves, who was also drawing interest from the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints. Ultimately, he re-signed with his old coordinator.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to pass along the news:

Groves compiled 54 tackles and four sacks in 2012 under Horton.

The former Auburn Tigers standout joined the league as a second-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars, after having a scare at the NFL Scouting Combine. Groves was discovered to have Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome and needed to undergo minor heart surgery. It scared off a number of teams, but he still got his chance.

After his time in Jacksonville, Groves took a detour in the black hole in Oakland before signing with Arizona. He will now have a chance to continue the rebirth of his career in the Browns linebacker rotation.
