Buccaneers Waiving DE Darryl Tapp & TE Luke Stocker, Promoting Two

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced that they’ve waived veteran TE Luke Stocker and DE Darryl Tapp on Tuesday.

  • The Buccaneers are promoting DE Pat O’Connor to their active roster, according to Greg Auman.
  • Adam Caplan reports that the Buccaneers are also promoting FB Alan Cross.

Tapp, 33, is a former second-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2006. After four years with the Seahawks, Tapp signed a three-year contract with the Eagles as a free agent in 2010.

Tapp played a year for the Redskins before signing on with the Lions in March of 2014. Detroit later brought him back on a one-year deal before he eventually caught on with the Saints.

Unfortunately, the Saints cut Tapp loose coming out of the preseason as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players. New Orleans re-signed him only to waive him just a few days later.

The Buccaneers signed Tapp to a contract a month ago.

In 2017, Tapp has appeared in three games and recorded two tackles and a sack for the Buccaneers.

Stocker, 29, is a former fourth-round pick of the Buccaneers back in 2011. He’s currently in the final year of his three-year, $4.8 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $1.7 million for the 2017 season.

In 2017, Stocker has appeared in nine games for the Buccaneers and caught three passes for 18 yards receiving and one touchdown.
