Josh Rosen: It's My Duty To Prove Cardinals Wrong If They Ship Me Off

Apr 18, 2019 4:28 PM

Josh Rosen admits the uncertainity of his future with the Arizona Cardinals has bothered him.

The Cardinals are considering selecting Kyler Murray, which would then lead to a trade of Rosen.

"I think the season probably went as poorly as it could possibly go," Rosen said from an RV. "But within that, I had an unbelievable time. I think when people talk about, like, you can't listen to criticism or you can't read articles, you have to be aware of what's going on to a certain extent. So I definitely understand the situation.

"It's annoying, but it is what it is. Football's a business, and I definitely respect the higher-ups and their decisions. We won three games, and each one of those wins -- to me, it felt like we won the Super Bowl. And that feeling is so intoxicating, and that's why I just want nothing more than to be part of a team next year and have the same opportunities to go out and compete."

On Tuesday, new Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury said Rosen has been "phenomenal" through the offseason and has been the first one to show up to offseason workouts. General manager Steve Keim said he has had "good dialogue" with Rosen and called the quarterback a "pro's pro."

"I think the best advice I've ever gotten in life, from so many different people, is control what you can control," Rosen said. "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."

Cardinals Claim They Haven't Decided On No. 1 Pick

Apr 17, 2019 8:08 AM

The Arizona Cardinals have the first overall pick in next week's NFL draft, but Steve Keim said a decision on whom Arizona will pick has not been made.

"We are not done with this process," Keim said. "There are a number of players in my opinion and our scouts' opinions and our coaching staff's opinion that warrant being the first overall selection."

The Cardinals have been heavily linked to Kyler Murray, who was recruited by coach Kliff Kingsbury out of high school in Texas.

Jason La Canfora: Cardinals All-In On Kyler Murray

Apr 16, 2019 8:41 AM

The Arizona Cardinals own the No. 1 overall pick and have been widely believed to prefer to select Kyler Murray.

“I’ve heard since the combine, resolutely, staunchly, that they are all-in on Kyler Murray,” said Jason La Canfora.

Kliff Kingsbury was on record praising Murray before he became head coach of the Cardinals.

If the Cardinals select Murray at No. 1, they will likely trade Josh Rosen.

David Johnson Excited To Run More Shotgun

Apr 11, 2019 9:53 AM

Kliff Kingsbury used a lot of shotgun at Texas Tech and is expected to do the same with the Arizona Cardinals.

Only six teams used the formation less often than the Cardinals in 2018, but a change in philosophy wouldn't be a problem for David Johnson.

"I actually love that," Johnson said. "I did that in college. That’s all we did in college is the gun, a read-option-type thing. I think it really opens up more space for me and makes me able to read the defense a little bit more."

Cardinals Have Dinner With Nick Bosa

Apr 1, 2019 10:48 AM

The Arizona Cardinals had dinner with Nick Bosa in Fort Lauderdale on Friday.

The Cardinals have been strongly linked with Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick, but Bosa is widely considered the top overall prospect. The Cardinals have also met with Murray.

Mar 27, 2019 6:56 AM

The New York Giants are internally exploring a trade for Josh Rosen.

The Arizona Cardinals have been rumored to prefer Kyler Murray at No. 1 and will listen to offers for Josh Rosen. Rosen was the No. 10 pick in last year's draft.

The Giants could still also select a quarterback in this year's draft with Murray, Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones all potential first round picks at the position.

The future of Eli Manning as quarterback of the Giants beyond 2019 remains uncertain.

Kliff Kingsbury Insists Josh Rosen Fits His System

Mar 26, 2019 4:24 PM

Kliff Kingsbury insists Josh Rosen will fit his offense with the Arizona Cardinals should they keep him as their quarterback. The Cardinals are also considering Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick.

"No question," Kingsbury said. "People have said a lot of things that are misconceptions, if you will. But Josh is a tremendous player, I've always thought, watching him at UCLA. He played his best football in a spread system, some similarities to what we do. He's a tremendous thinker, very cerebral, can throw it with anybody, and we take a lot of pride in building a system around a quarterback.

"For someone to say he doesn't fit our system, it doesn't make sense."

Kingsbury said with the first overall draft pick comes "tons of chatter." 

Kingsbury praised Murray on Tuesday, calling him "one of the better dual-threat players to ever play."

"I don't know if I've seen one that can do both things as well as he does," Kingsbury said. "You see the running ability, Mike Vick comes to mind, that type of explosion and escapability. He's a true dropback passer when he wants to be. He's a tough combination."
