Raiders Training Camp: New LB Quentin Groves Fights Teammate

Former Jacksonville Jaguar Quentin Groves, acquired for a fifth-round draft pick in April, has wasted no time showing he has fight. He threw 260-pound fullback Alex Daniels to the ground Saturday and landed some punches before jabbing out a swift kick that barely missed his terrified teammate. Apparently, it all was premeditated.

“I was just trying to provide a spark,” Groves said while taking a break between practices. “I talked to my ‘backers last night and said we have to come out and be one of the most feared groups in the league. That’s what the Raiders are known for … that’s what we are.”

Coach Tom “Cable Guy” Cable apparently wasn’t very impressed, particularly with his Karate kick, noting, “That would probably get him kicked out of the game.” (no pun intended)

Groves is currently “fighting” to make the 53-man roster and is listed behind LB Kamerion Wimbley on the depth chart, who was acquired from Cleveland in March.
