Tapp re-signed with the Saints on Thursday, Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune reports. Tapp will be entering his 12th NFL season in 2017. In 2016, his first year with New Orleans, Tapp played in all 16 games, recording 17 tackles, including 0.5 sacks. He'll likely be a backup player once again in the upcoming campaign.
Tapp (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears. After participating in practice in a limited fashion Wednesday and Thursday, Tapp logged full duty during Friday's session to clear up any concern about his availability for Week 6. He's slated to come off the bench as part of the Lions' defensive line rotation.
The Lions have re-signed defensive end Darryl Tapp, according to Jeff Katzenstein of the Detroit News, citing NFLPA data. Tapp was scheduled to become a free agent on March 10. He reportedly signed for the minimum salary, which is $870,000 for veterans. He made $855,000 last season. Tapp had 17 tackles, half a sack and two pass defenses in his first year with the Lions, last season. He's been in the NFL since 2006, with the Seahawks, Eagles and Redskins.
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle) is active for Sunday's Wild Card matchup with the Cowboys after being listed as probable for the game on the team's final injury report. Johnson was fully expected to be available and will serve as the team's top receiving threat in the playoff game. Defensive ends Ezekiel Ansah (toe) and Darryl Tapp (not injury related) are also active after being listed as probable to play. The Lions will be without two injured players Sunday: defensive tackle Nick Fairley and guard Larry Warford. Detroit is a 6-point underdog in Dallas for Sunday's playoff game.
