There have been suggestions made the Arizona Cardinals keep Josh Rosen if they draft Kyler Murray
Yeah, the suggestion has been made. What if the Arizona Cardinals decide to keep Josh Rosen instead of trading him immediately if they decide to draft Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray?
Bad idea. I get where people are coming but it isn’t a good idea. If you are using the number one overall pick to draft a quarterback, why are you keeping the first round quarterback from just one season before?
Social media has suggested it but one even one blog went as far to suggest it in writing. I get it but why waste a pick on a quarterback when the team could have upgraded the defensive line?
People are forgetting, the Cardinals don’t need to draft a quarterback. If the Cardinals want to hold onto Rosen because they aren’t getting what they want in return, then don’t draft Murray.
If the Cardinals are drafting Murray, or even discussing it, then they are having conversations about trading Rosen already regardless of what they may say publicly. The thought they’d bench Rosen to backup Murray until a good offer comes later makes no sense.
Rosen deserves better. He deserves to be sent somewhere now if Murray is the pick. If the Cardinals are hell bent on getting a first round pick in return, then isn’t he worth keeping?
I mean, if you are going to go ask for a first round pick and more, then you have to think he’s worth that. If that’s the case then, you’re holding on to him.
Murray no doubt will go high in the draft if the Cardinals pass on him. But realistically, the Cardinals are going to get less than that first round pick they want.
A second round pick makes more sense for Rosen. Don’t wait much longer after the draft to unload him either if Murray is a Cardinal. The longer they wait, the lower the value of return, at least until well after the season has started.
