After working out OLBs today, Texans signed veterans Quentin Groves and Lawrence Sidbury.

Groves, 30, was drafted in the 2nd round by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has also played for the Oakland Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, and most recently the Cleveland Browns, where he recorded 4 tackles and 2 sacks in 5 games.
Sidbury, 28, was drafted in the 4th round of the 2009 draft by the Atlanta Falcons. He has spent the last five season in Atlanta and has totaled just 14 tackles and 5 sacks in 48 total games.
Both Groves and Sidbury will provide veteran depth at a position the Texans desperately could use some help. Both will likely contribute on special teams as well if they want to make the final 53-man roster.
Expect both deals to be for the veteran minimum.
The Texans continue with their training camp throughout the week with another OLB, Jadeveon Clowney, expected to join the team shortly.
