Tapp division's second RFA to sign
By Mike Sando
Restricted free agents rarely command outside offers, let alone change teams.
The Seahawks' Darryl Tapp probably wasn't going anywhere, in other words. It was still important for the veteran defensive end to sign his tender and report to the team as soon as possible, the better to get acclimated to coach Pete Carroll's defense (update: er, the Eagles' defense).
Seattle announced Tapp's signing Monday along with the release of safety Deon Grant and snapper Matt Overton. Tapp becomes the second RFA from the NFC West to sign his one-year offer, joining Rams safety Craig Dahl.
