Kansas City Chiefs Sign LB Zac Diles

The Kansas City Chiefs added depth to one of their weakest positions Friday when they signed former Kansas State LB Zac Diles.ZacDiles

After entering the league as a seventh round pick of the Houston Texans in 2007, where he spent four seasons. Diles also spent time with the Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans.

His best season was in 2010 with the Texans when he appeared in 15 games (10 starts), racking up 82 tackles.

Despite only starting one game over the last two seasons, Diles is coming to a Chiefs defense that currently has no depth to speak of at inside linebacker. Depending on what they are able to add in the draft, the veteran could be in a great position to land a spot playing next to Derrik Johnson.

Obviously the NFL Draft will give us a better picture of what the Chiefs defense will look like during training camp, but with no depth to speak of at inside linebacker, Diles could have a real chance to land a spot on the Chiefs defense.
