"He's a Julius Peppers/Dwight Freeney mixture type of player," Weaver said. "I think that after going through the drought he's been through the past three years in Seattle with the losses that he's hungry and ready to come out and prove himself again.
Weaver believes Tapp can thrive in Philadelphia's defensive scheme, much like Pro Bowl defensive end Trent Cole.
"They're high-motor guys that can make a difference," Weaver said. "Tapp is a high-motor, physical player. He plays against the run very good. He's able to use his height as an advantage obviously, getting under the pads of big offensive tackles. One of his specialties is being able to get up the field and make sacks and create havoc in the backfield. The Eagles are going to use his full ability and allow him to play like a reckless man. For the most part, he's going to do what Philly fans love, which is come to work every day and compete to the best of his ability," Weaver said. "I think he's going to make a big impact on this defense this upcoming year."
