Dolphins Workout Former Lions Second-Rounder CB Teez Tabor

Teez Tabor is getting another look. The corner back who was recently released by the Lions had a workout with the Dolphins on Tuesday, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network (Twitter link).

Tabor was a second-round pick in 2017, but he flamed out quickly and lasted just two seasons in Detroit. Tabor made one start as a rookie and four last year, but consistently struggled. He was quickly labeled a bust, and it was clear that Matt Patricia’s coaching staff wasn’t too high on him. The 53rd overall pick of the 2017 draft, Tabor was a first-team All-SEC selection in each of his last two years at Florida, but never lived up to his billing.

Because of his draft status, he’ll likely get another shot somewhere soon whether it’s with the Dolphins or someone else. Miami is in the midst of a full-blown rebuild and will likely be taking looks at as many young players as possible to try and find some gems for the future, so their interest makes sense. The Dolphins have Xavien Howard locked up longterm, but not too much behind him at corner.

    ‘Miami is in the midst of a full-blown rebuild and will likely be taking looks at as many young players as possible to try and find some gems for the future…’ yet trade a 25 year old good LT.

        There are no sure things in the draft. Bortles, Rosen, RG3, Luck, Winston, Mariotta et al come to mind as only decent QB’s taken in the top 10 recently.

          Don’t really know why you put Luck into that group,he actually played good,he just couldn’t stay healthy.

          And teams still value those picks,because there’s more examples of top QBs from the top of the draft,than there are of getting lucky and finding a 6th Rd Brady.

          And Houston’s picks probably won’t be that high,but it’s still 3 top 60 picks for a guy whose not moving Miami’s win totals all that much.They just about need a whole new team,they should be looking to make more deals for picks.

            We’ve watched the Browns, Jags, Cards, Raiders, Lions, Browns, and now for 19 years, the Fins, try and ‘rebuild’. Tanking for high end picks.

            As for Luck, a good QB that couldn’t stay healthy. Then retired before 30. Not a great #1 pick in all honesty. I admire him for leaving before doing permanent damage, but that doesn’t make him great as a player.

              Browns are the only team that tanked,the rest of them just stunk.Jags were just in the arc championship game 2 years ago.Cards just transitioned from Carson Palmer to Murray.Even the Browns,they were just bad for alot of years,but the plan to collect picks is starting to look like it could pay off.

              The Dolphins went from a 0-4 win team with Tunsil,to a 0-4 win team without him.They’re whole roster should be on the block,with the hope of stockpiling picks.

              Now repeat after me,E A G L E S,Eagles….

                None of the teams I listed have over a 500 record this century. Maybe they didn’t ‘tank’ but high picks never really panned out for them either.

                Instilling a ‘losing culture’ means just that. And being shellacked by 7 TD’s after 6 months of prep is not a good sign.

                • rgreen

                  And Tunsil wouldn’t of did anything to keep Baltimore from putting Miami over there knees to spank them.

                  • JJB0811

                    $1 says this new GM and HC won’t see it through. You’re right, Tunsil wouldn’t have helped. Nor did those future picks.

                    Another $1 saying they change at least 1 coordinator. So a new, either D or O, ‘philosophy’ to kick off 2020.

            • The Dolphins haven’t been tanking. They’ve been stuck in perpetual 7 win seasons without ever committing one way or the other.

      If you’re saying that about my comment saying Luck shouldn’t be grouped into that group of QBs,i never called him great,i said he didn’t belong group in with Winston and the other scrubs he mentioned.
