Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen had an underwhelming rookie season as the team finished with an NFL-worst 3-13 record. With a new head coach calling the shots, his job security has already been called into question.
After a video of new Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury praising Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray went viral, speculation began to emerge that the team might move Rosen to make room for Murray.
According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, a “high-ranking” source in the Arizona Cardinals has said that the idea of moving Rosen is, “Ludicrous. Not happening.”
Rosen was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Cardinals traded up from No. 15 with the Oakland Raiders on draft day.

Rosen made his debut in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears in a 16-14 loss and started the team’s remaining games.
He finished his rookie season with 2,278 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, 14 interceptions, and a passer rating of 66.7.
The Cardinals fired head coach Steve Wilks at the end of the season, his first year on the job.
Kingsbury was announced as the team’s new head coach on Wednesday.
