Trade and draft rumors aside, the Arizona Cardinals quarterback is expected to show up on Monday
So maybe the Arizona Cardinals won’t be trading starting quarterback Josh Rosen after all? Barring any huge transaction this weekend, he should be at Cardinals headquarters in Tempe on Monday.
That is when the team comes together for the first time since the end of the 2018 regular season. They will be starting their offseason conditioning program.
It had been rumored that Rosen would not appear because of all of the rumors surrounding him being traded. Many think the Cardinals will take Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the number one overall pick on April 25 at the NFL Draft.
It will be great to see Rosen come in next week and participate in team activities. Certainly many would understand if he chose not to show up.
So that begs the question, does him showing up mean he knows something we don’t? Well I’d lean towards know but I would venture a guess he may have decided to show up based on what he’s hearing from the team in regard to what their plans may be at this point.
It was reported last week that the Cardinals already told Murray that they are taking him with the first pick. I don’t buy that for one second, especially if they are allowing Rosen to come in.
Now, they may still end up taking Murray certainly, however they probably don’t have their minds made up yet. That would seem to match given they just hosted Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa in Arizona this past week.
Whatever the case may be, just hope that Rosen avoids any injury. Gets hurt and the Cardinals lose out on both ends. They lose out on trade value and any secrets as to who they’d take in the draft.
