Jaguars trade former 2nd-rounder Groves to Raiders
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)
The Jacksonville Jaguars have traded defensive end Quentin Groves to the Oakland Raiders for an undisclosed draft pick.
The teams agreed to the deal Wednesday, but it is contingent on Groves passing a physical.
Groves announced the trade on Twitter by writing ``Duval County....I LOVE U GUYS...thanks for all your support...New Starts(equals)New Beginnings...OAKLAND HERE I COME!!!!'' The Jaguars confirmed it a short time later.
The trade should give Groves a chance to start over. A second-round pick out of Auburn in 2008, Groves had 2 1/2 sacks as a rookie but none last year. He played every game in two seasons, recording 51 tackles and an interception. But he also dropped from starter to third-teamer.
