After just one season, the Arizona Cardinals have officially given up on 2018 first round pick Josh Rosen.
It was no secret that this was going to happen. New head coach Kliff Kingsbury had been saying since well before he was hired that he would take Kyler Murray number one overall if given the chance. As a man of his word, he selected Murray and immediately began shopping Rosen.
After what has been a rocky 3 months for Rosen, he has officially been traded to Miami. The on and off again relationship with Arizona is finally over and he seems excited about backing up Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Pretty ruthless. The best analogy for this would be Rosen and Arizona dating on and off for a year only for him to find out that they had been seeing Kyler Murray every time they were on a break. Then, as soon as it all breaks and Arizona looks like the bad guy, Rosen starts a petty war by posting a pic of him and his hot new fling.
It is still uncertain if Arizona is really holding a mediocre rookie season against Rosen or if Kingsbury thought he would not fit his system, but one thing is for sure. Josh Rosen did not want to be there. Not even in the NFL. After all, tennis has always been his true passion.
