In 2008, Jacksonville drafted defensive end Derrick Harvey in the first round and outside linebacker Groves in the second.
Harvey lasted three seasons with the Jags, Groves two.
Groves has played in 84 career games, recording 8.5 sacks. He played in five games last year and didn’t start any of them.
Still, Groves should be an upgrade over Patrick Bailey in the depth department after agreeing to a deal with the Titans. Bailey was a strong special-teamer but not much of an option on defense.
The Titans start Kamerion Wimbley and Derrick Morgan at outside linebacker in their new 3-4 defense. Shaun Phillips and Akeem Ayers are next in line. It seems they are down on Ayers, who hasn't been productive. I expect Groves could challenge for that fourth spot.
The Titans have not been shy about finding people from outside to bolster the roster.
Titans assistant special-teams coach Steve Hoffman helped Succop in Kansas City, where he became a quality player.
