The Kansas City Chiefs have announced today that they have agreed to a one year deal with linebacker Zac Diles.
In six seasons Diles has played in 67 games with 31 starts with the Titans, Buccaneers, Colts and Texans. In his career he has 223
tackles, one sack, one interception, three passes defensed, three forced fumbles and on fumble recovery. The Houston Texans originally picked him up in the 2007 NFL Draft in the 7th round (218th overall).
Diles will be competing for the ILB spot next to Derrick Johnson. The Chiefs have a need at ILB and with the second round pick gone from the trade for Alex Smith, picking up a starting ILB in the draft is not likely. The down side to Diles is that he has an injury prone history so that is why the Chiefs only signed him to a one year contract.
