Josh Rosen’s future remains uncertain.
The Cardinals are reportedly considering taking former Oklahoma signal-caller Kyler Murray with the top pick in next month’s draft. But, that doesn’t necessarily mean the team will move Rosen anytime soon.
Arizona has not set a deadline to trade the 22-year-old quarterback before the draft, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. The team could even hold on to both signal-callers for “a while” if it does nab Murray, the report says.
The Cardinals have not made a final decision about who they will select at No. 1, according to the report.

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.
The Patriots, Chargers and Giants are all “very interested” in dealing for Rosen, according to an earlier 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, that report says.
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 last 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.
