It appears quarterbacks Tyler Thigpen and Vince Young were not the only players to impress the Browns during tryouts this week.
According to multiple reports, the team is also signing veteran linebacker Zac Diles after Diles worked out for them during their voluntary minicamp.
The Browns are the seventh stop on Diles’ tour through the NFL. He started out as a seventh-round pick of the Texans in 2007 and spent four years in Houston before starting the journeyman phase of his career. Diles has spent time with the Rams, Buccaneers, Colts, Chiefs and Titans since leaving Houston and played eight games for the Titans over the last two seasons.
That’s obviously not the resume of a player who will be expected to fill a major role on the roster in 2014. As such, Diles will fight for time as a backup and on special teams over the rest of the offseason.
