    It took a quarter of the season for him to see the field,Authentic Jeremy Vujnovich Jersey, but as the Detroit Lions head into the December stretch run, second-round pick Teez Tabor has finally settled into a role on defense.
    where the team has used him both in coverage and as a blitzer.,womens Antonio Morrison Jersey,Tabor has played in most of the Lions' dime defensive packages in recent weeks
    Tabor had one tackle and missed a fourth-quarter sack on Case Keenum in Thursday's 30-23 loss to the Minnesota Vikings; last week he had two pressures on rookie Mitchell Trubisky in a win over the Chicago Bears.
    " Tabor said of his expanding role. "You get to do a little bit of everything. It fits my skill set.","I like it

    "I was close,womens Al Woods Jersey, I just got to come under control,Authentic Rigoberto Sanchez Jersey," he said. "I was going too fast. I just got to come under control, that’s it."
    Caldwell said if new defensive end Dwight Freeney had played Thursday,Authentic Deyshawn Bond Jersey,less than 24 hours after the Lions claimed him off waivers from the Seattle Seahawks, it would have been "the shortest turnaround that anybody has ever had."
