Tabor produced 28 tackles over 12 games in 2018.
Tabor is looking more and more like a bust after a 2018 season in which he was a healthy scratch on numerous occasions and has yet to defense a pass through 22 career games. It's unlikely the team gives up on the inexpensive 2017 second-rounder in advance of the 2019 campaign, but it's hard to imagine Tabor isn't on thin ice with the organization entering the offseason.

Tabor has been nursing a groin injury for over a week, but appears to be nearing a full recovery. Barring any setbacks, Tabor appears on track to start against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Tabor is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers with a groin injury, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.
The extent of Tabor's groin injury is still unclear at the moment. If he's unable to continue, the Lions will likely clear things up after the game. As for now, Nevin Lawson could be asked to step in and fill the void.
A lot can happen between now and Week 1, but Tabor at least seems on track to secure the starting spot on the outside opposite 2017 first-team All-Pro corner Darius Slay. As long as he continues to hold off Nevin Lawson for the job, Tabor could receive quite a bit of attention from opposing signal callers in 2018 given the presumed likelihood that team's try to avoid Slay's side of the field.
Tabor is in the mix for the starting cornerback job opposite Darius Slay, Michael Rothstein of ESPN reports.
Tabor was brought along slowly during his rookie season after the Lions selected him in the second round of last year's draft. Some were even quick to label him a bust when he was frequently made a healthy inactive during the first half of the campaign, but Tabor's role expanded as the season went on and the Florida product ultimately found himself in the starting lineup for the season finale with Nevin Lawson nursing a concussion. While Tabor was unable to finish that game after being knocked out with an arm injury of his own, there's been no indication that ailment is still a problem. It won't be easy, but the ascending cornerback will now have to compete with Lawson and the newly-acquired DeShawn Shead for the lone starting job available. In that very role last season, Lawson accrued 47 tackles and four pass breakups in 15 games.
