According to a source close to the situation, the Miami Dolphins -- who were not involved five days ago -- are now one of five AFC teams in trade talks with the Detroit Lions involving defensive tackle Shaun Rogers. Bill Parcells, Miami's executive vice president of football operations, has spoken very highly of Rogers in the past -- when Parcells was the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys and preparing to play the Lions.

Two of the other four AFC teams involved in talks with Detroit are the New York Jets and Denver Broncos. Rogers cannot be officially traded until 12:01 a.m. Friday morning. The Lions are seeking at least a second-round draft pick for Rogers or a third-round pick, coupled with a veteran player or other draft considerations.

he certainly fits the bill as a nose tackle in a 3-4 which the Fins are going to run (yet they don't have a legit plug like Rogers could be) -- a 2nd or 3rd+ is a lot to give up in a trade. Word also is Jets LB Jonathan Vilma is in Detroit for a physical and could be traded to the Lions - if the Jets are in on Rogers, maybe they get traded for each other.
