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.

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.
