4:42pm: It’s a one-year deal for Tapp, the Lions have confirmed (Twitter link via Birkett).
1:19pm: The Lions will be signing free agent defensive lineman Darryl Tapp, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press (via Twitter). Birkett adds in a second tweet that Tapp, who will replace Willie Young at defensive end, wanted to be reunited with Detroit defensive coach Jim Washburn, who worked with Tapp in Philadelphia.
Earlier this week, we learned that Tapp, an unrestricted free agent, wouldn’t be rejoining the Redskins. The former second round pick saw time in 11 games for Washington last season and, statistically, had his least productive season with seven tackles and one sack.
