Houston Texans Sign Quentin Groves And Lawrence Sidbury

Training camp has begun and the first round of NFL roster cuts is a few weeks away, but that doesn't mean the Houston Texans are dormant. They've signed two players that NFL Draft fanatics might remember from years gone by.

He can't wear No. 90 in Houston.  Seat's taken.

Remember these names, draftniks?

There were more than a few of us around these parts who were rather bullish on the NFL future of Lawrence Sidbury leading up to the 2009 NFL Draft. Similarly, many expected big things of Quentin Groves when the Jaguars took him in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft; that didn't exactly work out.

While the chances of either Sidbury or Groves making the 2014 Houston Texans' 53 man roster are seemingly low, both of these guys are low (no?) risk signings. Their NFL careers could very well be over if they don't catch on in Houston.

Your reaction, beyond "camp bodies," to the signings?
