Josh Rosen expected to participate in Cardinals' offseason workout program, report says

NFL trade rumors: Patriots, 2 other teams 'very interested' in Josh Rosen

Incumbent Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen has almost certainly heard the Kyler Murray rumors this offseason.

But that apparently won’t keep him from showing up for work.

The Cardinals’ first-round pick from a year ago is expected to report for the start of the team’s voluntary offseason workout program Monday, according to ESPN.

That’s good news for a team that needs continuity and leadership from the quarterback position with a new regime taking over after the firing of Steve Wilks in the wake of a disastrous 3-13 season.

It’s been widely speculated that first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury has an affinity for former Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray, with many expecting Kingsbury to take Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft.

Multiple reports throughout the offseason have linked Rosen to a host of teams via trade, with the heavy favorite being the Redskins.

However, ESPN reported Friday that Arizona hasn’t “engaged in active trade discussions” regarding Rosen. Teams have inquired, but, per the report, “to date, the Cardinals have not shown a willingness to trade him” (emphasizing the “to date”).

Rosen, 22, appeared in 14 games as a rookie, throwing for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns with 14 interceptions. He finished the season with a 66.7 quarterback rating — dead last among 33 qualified starting quarterbacks.

As it stands entering offseason workouts, Rosen and Brett Hundley, entering his fifth season in the NFL, are the only two quarterbacks on the Cardinals’ roster.
