Maybe Big Baby isn't bound for the Queen City after all.

A few hours after the Bengals and Lions confirmed that two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Shaun Rogers was headed for Cincinnati, The Detroit News has quoted league sources who say the deal appears to be dormant.

In giving up Rogers, the Lions were supposed to receive a third- and fifth-round pick in April's draft. But according to the News, the Lions may be exploring other trade options while Rogers still belongs to the team. Rogers, a second-round pick in the 2001 draft, signed a six-year extension in January 2005.
