Josh Rosen Trade Rumors: Miami Dolphins “Close” To Deal With Arizona Cardinals


Josh Rosen’s time in Arizona could be coming to an end this weekend, after the Cardinals went out and selected Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. Rosen, who was selected 10th overall just last year, has already unfollowed the Cardinals on social media as the trade talks continue to heat up.

According to ProFootballTalk, the Miami Dolphins are closing in on a deal with the Arizona Cardinals, centered around the Dolphins’ second-round pick (48th overall).

According to Sports Illustrated, the Cardinals started shopping Rosen just minutes before the draft kicked off, and they were originally seeking a first-round pick in exchange for the UCLA product.

General Manager Steve Keim has insisted that he won’t simply give Rosen away.

“I’m not giving up Josh for less than he’s worth,” Keim told NFL Network’s Mike Silver.

“He’s a really good player. He’s been amazing throughout this process, and I have nothing but good things to say about him. Quarterback’s the most important position in the game, and without one, you’re screwed — so you’d better have more than one. Trust me, I know. Four years ago we went into a playoff game with our fourth stringer (Ryan Lindley) because our other quarterbacks got hurt, and it wasn’t fun (Lindley threw for just 82 yards in a 27-14 defeat to the Carolina Panthers). So yeah, people might think it would be awkward to have them both, but I’m not worried about that at all. I have no reason to give Josh away.”
