Diles, a 6-foot, 245-pound veteran entering his eighth NFL season out of Kansas State, spent parts of the past two seasons with the Titans. Tennessee initially signed him as a free agent in May 2012, but a broken leg after six games truncated his first season there. An unrestricted free agent, he signed with the Chiefs and spent 2013 training camp with Kansas City, then re-signed with the Titans and spent eight weeks in Tennessee before the Titans released him in early December.
Houston’s seventh-round selection (218th overall) in the 2007 NFL Draft, Diles spent his first four seasons (2007-10) with the Texans before signing as an unrestricted free agent with St. Louis in 2011. Released at the end of 2011 training camp, he spent most of that year in Tampa Bay before finishing the campaign with the Colts.
In seven seasons, Diles has played in 69 games with 31 starts. He has 1.0 sacks, one interception, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
Born in Abilene, Texas, Diles played at Tulare High School in California’s Central Valley.
