I remember him bein an undersized DE prospect out of Va Tech, He could get to the qb then, seems like it was a long time ago though.

I've never heard of him either. You guys think this is more of a depth pick, or is this guy generally considered a quality starter?

It'll be a depth move. Play linebacker maybe DE. He was good with Seattle. Not so good with Philly, but what defender was good with them recently? He'll contribute for us. I like the pickup.

Wonder if it was insurance for the recent suspensions. Either way, I hope he tears it up in DC!!

Is this Darryl Tapp? If so isn't he the one that Chester and Trent said took a cheap shot at Lichensteiger's knee when he blew it out against the Eagles back in 2011? I thought I read something like that but I could be wrong.

Here's the interview from espn 980:

http://www.stationcaster.com/player_ski ... &f=1242221

He's from the area and is a Redskin fan.

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.

no doubt in my mind - Tapp was added to provide depth AND play Special Teams :D
one should always try to look on the bright side ... especially Redskins fans after the past 20 plus years

things will get better .... hopefully soon

Hail to the Redskins

This is a good pickup. Darryl Tapp is one of those shorter guys who can get under Tackles and get to the QB in spot duty. He was mismatched in the 4-3 with the wide nine gimmick that the Eagles use. He will be a guy who can come in and rush the passer in a limited role. Good pickup.
SPIT HAPPENS!!
