Saints Sign Tapp, Waive Tabb

(WVUE) -

As we approach training camp in West Virginia, back here in Metairie, the Saints are still finalizing the roster that they'll take to the Greenbrier. They've got a hole to fill with the loss of pass rusher Hau'oli Kikaha - for how long is not sure.

But, Vice President Mickey Loomis isn't taking any chances. He and head coach Sean Payton have decided to give veteran defensive end Darryl Tapp a chance. Tapp spent the entire 2015 season in Detroit, getting a run in 16 games, coming up with 26 tackles, two sacks and two forced fumbles.
He's also spent some time in Philly, Washington and his starting point, Seattle, 10 years ago.

Tapp got a call back following a solid showing in the Saints June mini-camp. As for who's spot he's taking on the roster, the Saints have waived tight-end Jack Tabb, who joined the Saints as an undrafted rookie in 2015.

Tabb spent his only season with the Saints on injured reserve because of a knee injury he suffered during last summers training camp.
