Dolphins interested in Shaun Rogers

New, comments

We've talked about this idea before, but now it seems like the Dolphins are true players for Lions' DT Shaun Rogers.  As reported by MLive.com:

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.

That's all well and good.  Rogers is the kind of defensive tackle this team needs and is young enough to be in Miami for a while.  However, the price seems a little rich for my blood.  The article claims the Lions are looking for "at least a 2nd round pick or a 3rd round pick, coupled with a veteran player or other draft considerations."  Considering the report claims there are at least 5 teams interested in Rogers, I think the price will end up being a little too much for Parcells and company.  But I'm sure we'll find out soon enough.

Thoughts?
