Dolphins and Lions Resume Harrington Trade Talks

Over the weekend some progress appears to have been made in the plan to deal Joey Harrington to the Miami Dolphins.  Trade talks had broken off last week as the Dolphins were content with just waiting until Harrington was cut, but now have opened their ears to hear offers again.  Detroit originally had a 7th round pick from this year's draft and then a 6th round pick for next year's draft offered, but Matt Millen wasn't happy with either of those proposals.

The Lions and Dolphins are speaking again about the deal, and the Miami Herald had this to say about the trade today:

The Dolphins and the Detroit Lions have been in discussions during the weekend that could result in quarterback Joey Harrington being traded to the team in time to begin organized training activities in Miami by May 15, according to two sources.

It would be good to get this deal completed with Miami to finally send Joey Harrington out of Detroit, and really close a dark chapter of Lions football.  Also, being able to actually make a trade and get something in return would be a lot better then just cutting Harrington.
