Cleveland Browns Cut LB Quentin Groves

The Browns have reportedly released veteran LB Quentin Groves.

According to multiple reports this morning, the Cleveland Browns have cut LB Quentin Groves.

Groves played just one season for the Browns last year, and found himself finishing the year on injured reserve. Regardless of his injury, he's apparently healthy and ready to go for camp. Not so fast. Looks like he'll be looking for a new team to start camp.

The timing of the release is a little perplexing, but when you look at the depth at LB for the Browns it is conceivable to understand cutting one of them. The front office apparently thought Groves was their man to let go. Perhaps the Browns recently signing third round pick LB Chris Kirksey also played into the decision.

It's also worth noting that Groves played under former Browns DC Ray Horton in Arizona during the 2012 season, and thus the connection in Cleveland last year. With Horton gone and Jim O'Neil the DC now, that connection was lost, and subsequently so was Groves.

With Groves' limited playing time last year, and amassing only 8.5 sacks in 6 career seasons, this doesn't appear to be a huge blow. But Groves would've been a valuable veteran special teamer, so there will probably be some impact.

What do you all think of the releasing of Groves? And do you find the timing strange?
