NFL Roundup: Browns' Groves issues apology

The SportsXchange

Cleveland Browns linebacker Quentin Groves apologized late Wednesday after being arrested for soliciting an undercover police officer in a prostitution sting.

In a statement, Groves said that he let many people down, and told fans, the team and the city of Cleveland he was sorry for putting himself in that situation.

"I am committed to learning from this and moving forward," he said.

Groves allegedly responded to a sex-for-hire ad and agreed to payment before arriving at Homestead Guest Studios in Beachwood, Ohio. The police report indicates that Groves requested "full service" from an undercover police officer posing as a prostitute, but was met by multiple officers when he reached the predetermined room.

---San Diego Chargers wide receiver Danario Alexander signed his one-year, $1.323 million tender as a restricted free agent.

He wasn't signed until late October last season, but still led the Chargers with seven touchdown receptions. He finished with 37 catches for 658 yards in the final game games.

---West Virginia wide receiver Tavon Austin is the No. 1 overall player on the Buffalo Bills' draft board, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Such a development could upset the New York Jets, who hold the ninth overall pick, one spot after Buffalo. The Bills, however, could also just be posturing for value to trade down, and still secure Syracuse quarterback Ryan Nassib, according to various reports.

The Jets, who pick at 9th and 13th, and the Rams, who hold the 16th and 22nd choices, have both been linked to Austin.
