Saints Re-Sign DE Darryl Tapp

The New Orleans Saints officially re-signed veteranĀ DE Darryl Tapp to a contract on Thursday.

Tapp previously mentioned that he was open to returning to the Saints for the 2017 season and it appears as though they were able to get a deal done in the end.

Tapp, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Seahawks back inĀ 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.

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.
