Arizona Cardinals would be crazy to trade Josh Rosen
Despite the crazy notion of even making the suggestion, some still believe the Arizona Cardinals should trade Josh Rosen
So, new Arizona Cardinals head coach Kilff Kingsbury has been in the position for all of about 24 hours and the rumors have already started he might be looking to replace quarterback Josh Rosen. That would be because the Cardinals own the number one pick in the draft and could get Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray instead.
Forget it. It’s not going to happen. Why it’s a point of topic only goes to show that there isn’t a lot to talk about outside of the NFL playoffs when it comes to football right now.
The Cardinals have the number one pick in the draft, yes. However Murray is not a number one pick. He might not even be the number one quarterback.
This all stemmed from comments made by Kingsbury earlier in the season how he would draft Murray if given the chance. With the number one pick, the Cardinals have the chance anyone they wish.
To make such a suggestion that the Cardinals are going to or should give up on Rosen this quickly just shows the lack of knowledge people have. No one with the Cardinals has made a suggestion. It’s just media making something out of nothing.
There is no way anyone inside or outside the organization can make a clear evaluation of Rosen’s rookie season. First, he didn’t even start the first three games.
Secondly, he was left in a bad situation with the offensive line he was provided. He needs a full season of knowing he is the number one, get some good coaching, and get a decent offensive line.
It’s so easy to give up on a coach these days. There are many that can fill the position. Finding a franchise quarterback is not easy. It also doesn’t happen overnight.
Can you imagine if the Dallas Cowboys had given up on Troy Aikman after a 1-15 rookie season? How about the 3-13 record that came along with Peyton Manning‘s rookie season?
It’s easy to understand and want winning now. The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. Certainly in this day and age teams can’t afford to be too patient but Rosen needs a full season to show he can be the man.
We are pretty sure Murray is going to play football but there is always the chance he goes to baseball. It’s a fact. If things don’t work out in the NFL, he has a baseball career he can easily switch to.
If Murray gets drafted after a Rosen trade and either decides football ain’t it after a year or two or even sooner and goes back to baseball, with Rosen leading another franchise, where does that leave the Cardinals? Yeah, right back to where they were last offseason. Pass.
