ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — The Washington Redskins have signed free-agent linebacker Darryl Tapp.
The team announced Thursday the acquisition of Tapp, who has played seven NFL seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles.
Tapp hasn’t been a regular starter since 2008. He has been a backup for the last three seasons with the Eagles.

O’s put Chris Tillman on 15-day DL
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) — The Baltimore Orioles put right-hander Chris Tillman on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left abdominal muscle.
The move announced Thursday is retroactive to March 22, which allows Tillman to pitch in the Orioles’ fifth game of the season on April 6 against Minnesota.
Tillman was scratched from his scheduled March 10 start because of abdominal soreness and has pitched only in minor league games since.
Baltimore also reassigned outfielder Trayvon Robinson to its minor league camp.
WNBA, ESPN extend TV contract to 2023
NEW YORK (AP) — The WNBA has extended its contract with ESPN through the 2022 season.
The league and network announced Thursday they had added six years to their current broadcasting deal, which had four seasons remaining. ESPN has been televising WNBA games since its inaugural season in 1997.
“We want to be supporters of women’s sports and the WNBA is a signature league for us,” ESPN President John Skipper said. “We’ve been a partner since the league started. This new deal is a sign of our commitment to continuing that partnership. We wanted to be unreserved about our enthusiasm for the league. We wanted to show our commitment early and that’s what this is all about.”
Up to 30 games will be aired yearly on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.
Patriots sign WR Michael Jenkins
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots have signed free agent wide receiver Michael Jenkins.
In his ninth season, Jenkins caught 40 passes for 447 yards and two touchdowns with the Minnesota Vikings last year. He joined them in 2011 after seven seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, who drafted him in the first round in 2004 out of Ohio State.
Jenkins has 354 catches for 4,427 yards and 25 touchdowns in 130 games, including 79 starts. The Vikings released him March 5.
The Patriots lost their top two receivers from last season when Wes Welker, who had 118 catches, signed with the Denver Broncos, and Brandon Lloyd, who had 74 receptions, was released. They’ve added free agents Danny Amendola from the St. Louis Rams and Donald Jones from the Buffalo Bills.
