Saints Re-Signing DE Darryl Tapp

The New Orleans Saints are re-signing veteran DE Darryl Tapp to a contract on Wednesday, according to Josh Katzenstein.

Tapp, 32, 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.

In 2016, Tapp appeared in all 16 games for the Saints and recorded 17 tackles, 0.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 43 edge rusher out of 109 qualifying players.
