The competition will continue throughout training camp, but the Lions’ kickers had their most extensive work Wednesday night at Wayne State’s Tom Adams Field.

And Giorgio Tavecchio, who participated in camp with the 49ers in 2012 and the Packers last year, had a better night than Nate Freese, the Lions’ seventh-round pick.

Tavecchio made all of six of his field goals, including a 48-yarder in the two-minute drill. Freese went 4-for-6 after one of his 30-yard attempts was blocked and he missed his 48-yard try wide right.
