Darryl Tapp: Cut by Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapp was released by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Tapp will see his tenure with the Bucs end after five weeks with the squad. He only played during the previous three weeks and tallied two tackles during that span. He was let go in order to make room for rookie defensive end Pat O'Connor, as the team appears to be looking toward the future.

Buccaneers' Darryl Tapp: Records first sack in Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapp posted two solo tackles, including one sack and another tackle for loss, in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets.

The veteran pass rusher was active for the first time in a Tampa uniform and immediately paid dividends by notching his 29th career sack. With William Gholston (neck) sidelined Sunday, Tapp played on 33 percent (23 snaps) of the Buccaneers' defensive plays, but that volume is likely to take a hit once the former returns to the field. As a result, Tapp remains off the IDP radar for the moment, although he could gain a measure of relevance in deeper formats if Gholston's absence persists for multiple games.

Darryl Tapp: Cut by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tapp was released by the Saints on Saturday, Nick Underhill of The Advocate reports.

Tapp signed with New Orleans just three days ago so the dismissal is a bit perplexing. The initial thought here is that Tapp might find his way back onto the roster following Sunday's contest. Tapp was released to help reinforce a thin secondary.

Redskins trying to add speed to pass rush
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Redskins defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has revealed some changes to the team's pass-rushing packages during the preseason.

In some third-down situations, Haslett has utilized six linebackers to take advantage of the talent at the position. Haslett has had linebackers Ryan Kerrigan and Darryl Tapp lined up in three-point stances, Brian Orakpo and Brandon Jenkins at their outside linebacker positions, and London Fletcher and Perry Riley as inside linebackers as always.

Haslett is carrying through on his vision to use all of his top pass rushers at the same time.

"Just something to try to get a little more speed on the field. We are just trying some things out right now," Haslett said, per The Washington Post. "Obviously, when we get into the regular season, who we’re playing, when we’re playing, how we’re playing them, the teams we’re playing will dictate what we can do. We ran it last week, wanted to see what it looked like and I thought those guys did a nice job with it."
