With the Kyler Murray era set to begin in Arizona, the clock is ticking on Josh Rosen’s time in the desert. The former first-round pick is expected to be on the move according to multiple reports.
Whether or not Arizona gave Rosen a fair opportunity this past season, the reality is that Kliff Kingsbury sees more potential in Murray. Nonetheless, it doesn’t mean that Rosen can’t have successful career in the NFL.
Last year, the UCLA product had a bunch of scouts raving over his potential. Most scouting reports would list Rosen as the top pure passer in his draft class.
It’s pretty evident that the Miami Dolphins find value in Rosen, even if his rookie season didn’t meet expectations.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins and the Cardinals are in trade talks involving Rosen.
“As far as the possible price, it’s probably going to end up being somewhere around a second-round pick. That from what I understand is the likely target price for those involved,” Rapoport said.

Trade discussions are still in progress, but it appears Rosen could be on his way to Miami very soon.
Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk is reporting that Arizona would receive the No. 48 pick from Miami in this trade scenario.
Multiple sources say the Dolphins are close to a deal for QB Josh Rosen, and that a deal may actually be tentatively done. Arizona would get pick No. 48 from Miami.

Acquiring Rosen would give Miami a young signal-caller, meanwhile Arizona could put all its focus toward Murray.
