Kliff Kingsbury On Kyler Murray Rumors: Josh Rosen Is Our Guy

Feb 13, 2019 8:47 AM

Kliff Kingsbury insists that Josh Rosen is the quarterback of the future for the Arizona Cardinals.

Kingsbury has said in the past that he'd draft Kyler Murray with the first overall pick if he could.

"Our feelings toward Josh haven't waned or changed," Kingsbury said. "I get it. We have the first pick, so there are going to be a million scenarios over the next three months that are going to come. Kyler is a tremendous player. I said that being very complementary before we played an opponent. I understand the sound bite, but like I said, there are going to be a ton of scenarios that are going to come up before we get to the draft."

The Cardinals used the 10th overall pick on Rosen in 2018.
