Through seven Lions training camp practices, Giorgio Tavecchio has been the more impressive of the two legs in camp.
Tavecchio went 5-for-5 on Monday and hasn’t missed a kick in a field goal period since early last week, when he left a 49-yarder short. Tavecchio later said the field goal posts were, unbeknownst to him, pushed back 5 yards for that kick (and an attempt missed by Nate Freese on the same day).
Owners shouldn't count on Freese winning the job just because he was recently drafted. It sounds like Tavecchio might be in the lead at this point.
