A countdown of the top-12 images of Darryl Tapp during his first seven years in the NFL.
Seven-year veteran Darryl Tapp has played on both coasts during his NFL career and split time between defensive end and outside linebacker. After beginning his career with the Seattle Seahawks, he spent the last three seasons playing for the Philadelphia Eagles, making him quite familiar with the Redskins and the NFC East. Besides coming home to play for his hometown team, Tapp said his biggest incentive for returning to Washington is the opportunity to improve on his career 50-62 record. "I want to win. I'm so tired of losing," he said emphatically. "To win, and to do that on my favorite team-I couldn't ask for anything more." Born in Portsmouth, Va. and playing collegiate football for Virginia Tech, Tapp grew up a proud Redskins fan and is excited to live out a childhood dream this upcoming season. "You're never really at ease in the NFL, but I'm happy to be here in D.C. It was always a dream of mine to play here and it really came true this year." Despite going to the postseason only three times in his career, Tapp has had personal success from the 4-3 defensive end position.
