Chiefs Add LB Zac Diles

The Chiefs continue to build their roster for the coming off-season program and added another linebacker on Friday, signing six-year NFL veteran Zac Diles.

The 6-2, 245-pound has been an outside linebacker and special teams contributor for Houston, St Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis and Tennessee. He spent his first four seasons in the league with the Texans, after being selected in the 7th-round of the 2007 NFL Draft after playing two seasons at Kansas State.

Diles has played 67 games with 31 starts in the last six seasons, picking up 223 total tackles, 1 sack, 1 interception, 3 forced fumbles and a recovered fumble.

The 27-year old product of Tulare High School in California, signed with St. Louis as an unrestricted free agent in 2011. The Rams cut him on the final roster reduction before the regular season. After clearing waivers he signed with Tampa Bay and stayed there until early December when he was released. He was claimed on waivers by Indianapolis and finished the season with the Colts.

Last year he signed with Tennessee in the off-season and spent the season with the Titans. Diles played in the first 6 games, including one start and had 11 total tackles.
