News: The Lions could be leaning toward rookie kicker Nate Freese, on whom the team spent a seventh-round pick, over Giorgio Tavecchio, who has bounced around training camps the past two years, reports ESPN.

Tavecchio has the stronger leg. Freese is likely the more accurate kicker and, due to having a draft pick invested, would appear to be the favorite.

According to the Washington Post, Forbath has spent the offseason trying to improve on kickoffs. "That, and continued accuracy on field goals is the key to his job security," the paper said.
