Linebacker Zac Diles has spent at least part of each of the last five years in the AFC South and he’ll be trying to make it six in a row in 2012.
The Titans announced Tuesday that they have signed Diles as a free agent. Diles played for the Colts and Buccaneers last season after getting cut by the Rams at the end of training camp. The Colts waived him in February.
Diles spent the first four years of his career in Houston. He started 30 games for the Texans as an outside linebacker, but wasn’t asked back when Wade Phillips came in to take over the defense. He projects as a backup and special teamer with the Titans.
The Titans also signed fullback Colin Mooney. Mooney is a West Point graduate who spent the last three years fulfilling his commitment to the Army. He ran for 1,339 yards as a senior in 2008, which is the highest total in school history.
Fullback Will Ta’ufo’ou and linebacker Lawrence Wilson were released to make room for the two new additions.
