Saints re-signed DE Darryl Tapp.

A longtime reserve, Tapp was a body upfront for the Saints last season. He played 291 solid snaps, primarily against the run. Tapp turns 33 in September.
Thu, Mar 23, 2017 04:43:00 PM

Free agent DE Darryl Tapp said he hopes to play two more seasons.

Tapp played 291 snaps in the Saints’ defensive line rotation last year. He’s open to re-signing but wants to play for a contender. A situational run stopper, 32-year-old Tapp should sign for close to the veteran minimum.

Saints signed DE Darryl Tapp.

Tapp, 32 in September, played 419 snaps as part of the Lions' defensive line rotation last season, notching a pair of sacks and receiving plus marks from Pro Football Focus for his run defense. He'll compete for a similar role in New Orleans. To make room for Tapp, the Saints waived TE Jack Tabb.

Lions re-signed DE Darryl Tapp to a one-year, $950,000 contract.

Per the Detroit Free Press, the deal includes an $80,000 signing bonus. Tapp played 288 snaps last season, registering just 0.5 sacks. Going on 31, he won't be assured of a spot on the 53-man roster.
Mon, Mar 2, 2015 02:05:00 PM

The Detroit Free Press believes it "makes sense" for the Lions to retain free agent DE Darryl Tapp.

Tapp only recorded one sack in 302 defensive snaps in 2014, but he is a veteran leader and asset in the locker room. He should be relatively cheap to retain.

Lions re-signed DE Darryl Tapp.

Tapp was released at final cuts, but returns as a deep reserve/special teamer after the Lions placed rookie SLB Kyle Van Noy on I.R./designated to return.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 04:24:00 PM

Lions released DE Darryl Tapp.

Tapp was always a poor bet to stick in one of the league's deepest and most talented front fours. The veteran special teamer turns 30 in September, but may have enough juice left to land elsewhere as a fourth end.
Sat, Aug 30, 2014 11:25:00 AM

Lions signed DE/LB Darryl Tapp, formerly of the Redskins.

Tapp, 29, is a special teamer and reserve edge player. He does not figure to push for significant defensive playing time barring multiple injuries.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 05:25:00 PM

Free agent DE/OLB Darryl Tapp is visiting the Lions Thursday.

Tapp appeared in 11 games for the Redskins last year, recording one sack and seven tackles as seldom-used outside linebacker. The Skins did not want him back.
Thu, Mar 13, 2014 10:28:00 AM

The Washington Post confirms the Redskins are moving Darryl Tapp to outside linebacker.

Tapp has played his entire seven-year career at defensive end, but the Redskins are trying him out as a situational pass rusher behind Brian Orakpo. If Washington fails to upgrade in the draft, Tapp could see extended playing time to open the season with Rob Jackson suspended for the first four games.
Sat, Apr 13, 2013 10:38:00 PM

Redskins agreed to terms with OLB Darryl Tapp, formerly of the Eagles, on a one-year contract.

Tapp, 28, recorded 13 tackles and a half-sack in 13 games with the Eagles last season, but he played in just 257 defensive snaps while acting as the fifth or sixth defensive end. The seven-year veteran has 24 career sacks, and he'll be solid veteran depth behind injury-prone Brian Orakpo at the pass-rushing outside linebacker spot. Tapp is also a plus run defender.
Thu, Mar 28, 2013 03:44:00 PM

Eagles DE Darryl Tapp agreed to a pay-cut to keep his roster spot.

Tapp was on the trade block, but will stick around after agreeing to slash his untenable $2.575 million salary for a reserve end. It's unknown how large of a cut he agreed to. No better than sixth on the depth chart, Tapp won't tally more than the 2-3 sacks he's been averaging the past three seasons.

The Wilmington News Journal expects the Eagles to trade DE Darryl Tapp before Week 1.

Tapp may be cut if he isn't traded, so interested parties could potentially wait and sign him for cheaper than his $2.575 million base salary after he's released. The 28-year-old Tapp registered 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble on limited snaps last season. He's buried behind Jason Babin, Trent Cole, Brandon Graham, Vinny Curry, and Philip Hunt on Philadelphia's defensive end depth chart.
Wed, Aug 29, 2012 05:12:00 PM

The Sideline View's Adam Caplan floats Eagles DE Darryl Tapp as a potential trade candidate during training camp.

Tapp is a relatively significant salary ($2.575 million) for a player coming off a 2.5-sack season, but he might be able to net Philly a sixth- or seventh-round pick. Tapp's availability will be contingent on the health and effectiveness of Brandon Graham, as well as the progress of young DEs Phillip Hunt and Vinny Curry.
