If traded by the Arizona Cardinals QB Josh Rosen will ‘prove them wrong’
Arizona Cardinals’ quarterback Josh Rosen briefly spoke to Sports Illustrated about his current situation with the team.
In a recent episode of Sports Illustrated TV’s ’24 Hours With” series, a group of cameramen joined Arizona Cardinals’quarterback Josh Rosen and his former UCLA teammates on a trip to the Grand Canyon. Although the video was mostly centered around college ball and the environment, Rosen did speak up about the situation pertaining to himself, Kyler Murray, and the lowly 2018 season.
While he didn’t quite hint at what the future holds in store, Rosen reasoned with the Cardinals business logic in the situation and said he
"wants nothing more than to be a part of a team next year and have the same opportunities to go out and compete."
Interestingly enough, Rosen didn’t say which team he’d be on, and he didn’t mention the Cardinals once in the 15-minute video either. Instead, he referred to the team as ‘they.’ Whether that was intentional or not is all up to Josh.

Shortly after the quote, Rosen continued to live up to his confident nature by reaffirming he’d be a mistake for nine teams or he’d add another team to the list, saying;
"And whatever decisions are made, it’s my duty to prove them right if they keep me, and prove them wrong if they ship me off."
Again, his questions don’t give us anything on face value.
However, it’s fair to wonder, if, at this point, Steve Keim is a puppet master pulling off the greatest smokescreen in draft history or failing to shush the NFL’s worst kept secret. But with most of the NFL landscape convinced that Kyler Murray is the pick at No. 1 overall pick coupled with Steve Keim’s poker face and Josh Rosen’s lack of communication, it’s hard to tell exactly what is going on in Tempe.
Luckily, Cardinals fans won’t have to wait too long for this to be over. In less than a week’s time, Roger Goodell will be announcing the next potential star in the desert. But if it’s Kyler, expect for Rosen to be shipped off before the draft in order to get the best value.
