Kansas City Chiefs sign free agent linebacker Zac Diles

Jeff Griffith-US PRESSWIRE

The free agent frenzy (or something like that) continues for the Kansas City Chiefs, who have reportedly inked linebacker Zac Diles to a 1-year contract.

The Kansas City Chiefs on Friday had two free agent visitors: safety Sherrod Martin, formerly of the Carolina Panthers, and linebacker Akeem Jordan, formerly of the Philadelphia Eagles. They didn't sign either of them. At least not yet. But what they did do was sign former Tennessee Titans linebacker Zac Diles, according to Adam Caplan.

We'll see about competing for a starting job. Diles has been on five teams in the last three years for a reason. He has an injury history so that's something to be concerned about. The Chiefs have a need at linebacker but with his injury history you have to protect yourself at that position. He can play special teams as well.

With someone like this, you get them on a one-year contract and hope they can prove it. Hope they can stay healthy and contribute.

Diles was originally a 2007 seventh round pick by the Houston Texans, where he started 30 games over four seasons. Since then he's played for the St. Louis Rams, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Indianapolis Colts and Titans.
