Josh Rosen offered a big congratulations to his successor in Arizona after the Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick.
“Kyler, I just want to congratulate you and your family on getting drafted. Arizona’s a really special place and you’re going to love playing and living here,” Rosen said in a video he posted Saturday on social media.
Rosen, who was traded to the Dolphins after the Cardinals drafted Murray, also proposed a deal on his apartment. The 22-year-old quarterback said: “Kyler, one more thing. An awesome two-bedroom in Old Town just came onto the market so let me know if you’re interested and I think I could get you a pretty good deal.”
Thank you @AZCardinals

Rosen took the opportunity to thank Cardinals fans for welcoming him over the past year after he was selected 10th overall out of the 2018 draft. His future was under speculation for much of the offseason as a result of the Cardinals having the No. 1 pick.
He completed 55.2 percent of his passes and threw for 11 touchdowns, along with 14 interceptions, in 14 games as a rookie playing behind a bad offensive line and with very little rushing attack.
Rosen’s full comments from the video are below:
“Hey everyone, just wanted to say a couple things after everything that just happened. Cardinals fans, thank you so much for all of the continued support this past year. I know we didn’t win as many games as we all would have hoped, but I had an unbelievable time here in the desert.
“Unfortunately my time here is coming to an end but you guys are really getting a hell of a player in Kyler Murray and he’s going to do great things for the Red Sea.
“Kyler, I just want to congratulate you and your family on getting drafted. Arizona’s a really special place and you’re going to love playing and living here.
“And to my teammates and staff and everyone who worked at the facility, I can’t thank you enough for all of the support and great memories we’ve created this past year. I’m really wishing all of the Arizona Cardinals the best of luck moving forward.
“Miami, I couldn’t be more excited to become a Dolphin. I’m ready to attack this new chapter and give you guys everything I have each and every day. My bags are packed and I’m on a flight first thing tomorrow morning, so get ready, South Florida, and go ‘Phins.
“And Kyler, one more thing. An awesome two-bedroom in Old Town just came onto the market so let me know if you’re interested and I think I could get you a pretty good deal.”
