The last time he appeared in the NFL was with the Tennessee Titans in 2014. He recorded 18 tackles and one sack. Groves also recorded 19 sacks and 28 tackles for loss in three seasons with Auburn.
Groves was picked up by the Bills in 2015, but was dropped before the season started. Before entering the NFL in 2008, he was diagnosed with Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which leads to an irregular heart beat.
