The Cardinals could have multiple options if they decide to move Josh Rosen.
The Patriots, Chargers and Giants are all “very interested” in trading for the 22-year-old quarterback, according to a report from FOX Sports.
One of those teams has already offered a second-round pick in exchange for Rosen, but Arizona is holding out for a top selection, the report says.
“There are 3 teams that I have heard and I know are very interested in Josh Rosen: New England, the New York Giants, and the LA Chargers. One of those have already offered a 2nd-round pick. … Arizona is waiting for a 1st — I don’t think they’ll get it.” — @joelklatt pic.twitter.com/nVC17lGsyJ

The Cardinals selected Rosen out of UCLA with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft. He completed 55.2 percent of his passes and threw for 11 touchdowns, along with 14 interceptions, in 14 games as a rookie.
Arizona is reportedly considering taking former Oklahoma signal caller Kyler Murray with the top pick in next month’s draft and some have speculated Rosen will not fit into new coach Kliff Kingsbury’s offense.
Kingsbury, however, said that was not the case when he met with reporters earlier this week.
“People have said a lot of things that are misconceptions, if you will,” Kingsbury said, via ESPN. “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.”
Arizona tallied a 3-13 record in 2018 and missed the playoffs for a third straight season. It finished last in the NFL in total offense.
