Carlos Monarrez Detroit Free Press Published 7:53 PM EDT Jun 5, 2019 On the first day of Detroit Lions minicamp, cornerback Teez Tabor looked solid, showing off some speed to break up a pass and intercepting a Matthew Stafford throw. On the second day of minicamp, Tabor struggled noticeably, getting beat several times as he continued his up-and-down journey of inconsistent play as he enters his third NFL season, with the clock ticking louder than ever. When a reporter asked Tabor how he felt about his current progress, Tabor offered a blunt and sobering self-assessment. “I ain’t doing too good right now,” he said. “There’s a lot of things I need to work on still.

Orion Sang Detroit Free Press Published 11:27 AM EDT Jun 3, 2019 Jim Harbaugh wanted Daxton Hill at Michigan as soon as possible. It appears Harbaugh's wish came true.

In April, Harbaugh hosted Hill's parents, Tia and Derrick Hill, on his podcast and mentioned the possibility of Hill arriving June 1, and not June 15. "I'd like to lobby for a second here for that June 1 date," Harbaugh said on the podcast. "It's really starting to sink in with me, too. That Dax learning the system and getting up here a little bit early really would help. Because it's sinking in that he's going to be playing very early in his career here at the University of Michigan." Hill is in Ann Arbor now, which means it's full speed ahead for the former top-ranked safety. “Just going to … [Read more...] about Michigan football: Daxton Hill now on campus, may play offense
