Three NFL teams have been named frontrunners for a potential trade for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen.

Rosen, a 2018 first-round NFL Draft pick, has constantly been mentioned in trade rumors since his franchise hired head coach Kliff Kingsbury.

Kingsbury is a fan of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray and, with the Cardinals possessing the No. 1 overall pick, some believe the Cardinals will select the 2018 Heisman Trophy winner. This would likely mean that Rosen would be playing elsewhere in 2019.

If that does happen, where will Rosen be traded?

ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reportedly named three frontrunners on his latest podcast.

"He said Giants, Dolphins and Chargers as front runners," JP Finlay tweeted.

The Chargers are perhaps the most-surprising team of the three, though Philip Rivers is 37 years old. The Giants and Dolphins are both in need of future quarterbacks.

Rosen, though, has reportedly impressed Kingsbury in recent workouts.

There is also growing pessimism surrounding the idea that Murray will be drafted No. 1 overall.

The 2019 NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday night. It'll be televised on ABC/ESPN/NFL Network beginning at 8 p.m. E.T.
