Easterling adds that Groves had heart surgery back in 2008 to treat Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome, which impacts the heart’s electrical system.
Groves, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Jaguars back in 2008. He spent just over two years in Jacksonville before he was traded to the Raiders in return for a 2010 fifth round pick that ultimately became Matt Tennant.
After that, Groves had brief stints with the Cardinals, Browns, Texans, Titans and most recently for the Bills.
Over the course of his seven-year NFL career, Groves totaled 127 tackles, 9.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries, five forced fumbles, two interceptions, a safety and six pass defenses.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
