The Oakland Raiders tried out a familiar face Tuesday, auditioning former starting center Jake Grove(notes), according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Grove signed with the Miami Dolphins as a free agent last year after being drafted in the second round by the Raiders out of Virginia Tech in 2004.
Cut by the Dolphins on Sept. 9, Grove has been trying out for teams.
He tried out for the Baltimore Ravens recently, but wasn't signed.
The 6-foot-4, 300-pound former consensus All-American adn Rimington Trophy award winner didn't live up to expectations with the Dolphins after signing a five-year, $29 million contract on March 2, 2009 that included $14.5 million in guaranteed money.
Grove has started 56 career games in six NFL seasons.
