WEEK IN REVIEW: Lions break for offseason, eye training camp

The Lions offseason training program is completed, and things at the Allen Park training facility are quieting down. But it won't stay that way for long.

Some players, like rookie cornerback Teez Tabor, already have their eyes on training camp, and the work that comes with it.

"I just have to keep working, that's all," Tabor said. "(I'm) not where I want to be yet. It's a lot of work that goes into where I want to be."

For Tabor, it's all about the competition. For fellow rookie Jarrad Davis, communication could be the key, especially with linebacker Tahir Whitehead missing most of the offseason workouts while he rehabs an injury. Davis doesn't think Whitehead missing time will hurt the on-field chemistry of the linebackers.

"It takes time to develop a relationship," Davis said. "I put time in. It's something we've been able to do in the meeting room.

"I'll be able to tell you more about that when camp comes around, and things like that."
