Browns agreed to terms with LB Zac Diles.

Diles participated in this week's voluntary workouts on a tryout basis, and earned a spot on the Browns' 90-man roster. A 2007 seventh-rounder, Diles has appeared in only eight games over the past two seasons. Two of those came with the Titans in 2013. He'll be a long-shot to crack the 53-man roster.

Diles, 28 in June, spent his first four years with the Texans, but he has bounced around since. He's been with the Rams, Bucs, Colts, and Titans over the last two seasons. Diles made 11 tackles for Tennessee before breaking his leg in Week 7 last season. He'll try to earn a backup inside linebacker spot.

Titans MLB Zac Diles (broken leg) and LB Patrick Bailey (broken ankle) are both likely out for the season after going down in Week 7.

Bailey is a core special teamer. Diles had taken over as Tennessee's starting middle linebacker during Colin McCarthy's recovery from a recurring high ankle sprain. McCarthy is expected to return in Week 8 against the Colts, so the Titans shouldn't feel Diles' loss other than from a depth perspective.
