Tabor showed signs of improving this offseason, after two disappointing seasons of limited playing time and ineffective coverage. Unfortunately for Tabor, he suffered a leg injury prior to the preseason and never got to prove his improvements translated to competitive live snaps.
The Lions kept seven cornerbacks on their initial 53-man roster, but chose to skip over Tabor. Now they have an opportunity to bring him back, as Tabor is still practice squad eligible.
However, considering the Lions decided to keep the like of C.J. Moore, Dee Virgin and Mike Ford on the 53-man roster—players just as likely to clear waivers—it seems likely the Lions have decided to move on from Tabor. We’ll see what the Lions decide to do as they can start filling out their 10-man practice squad starting at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
