The first connection to Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton might be ready to commence. According to Ian Rapoport from NFL.com, the team is bringing in Arizona Cardinals outside linebacker Quentin Groves for a visit.
Quentin Groves will visit the #Browns. Pass-rush help...— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 12, 2013
Groves started 7 games for Arizona last year and registered 46 tackles, 4 sacks, and 1 forced fumble under Horton. I don't know if he would start in Cleveland's defense, but he would be a definite help in the area of depth and shouldn't cost a pretty penny. Groves was a second-round pick in 2008 by the Jacksonville Jaguars, but has been with three teams since then. Last year was his first with the Cardinals.
UPDATE: Although he's coming for a visit, the Cardinals still want Groves back too:
