The 49ers confirmed they signed Tabor in addition to OL Jaryd Jones-Smith on Tuesday. To make room, San Francisco released OL Ryan Pope and Will Holden.
Here’s the 49ers updated practice squad:

Tabor, 23, was drafted by the Lions in the second round out of Florida back in 2017. He was set to enter the third year of his four-year, $4.82 million rookie contract with $2.79 million guaranteed when Detroit cut him loose during final roster cuts.
In 2018, Tabor appeared in 12 games for the Lions, recording 28 total tackles, no interceptions and no pass defenses.
