Cardinals Not In Rush To Trade Josh Rosen

247 Sports

Arizona is playing their cards extremely close to the vest as they current sit atop the 2019 NFL Draft with the No. 1 overall pick. It's no secret that the Cardinals have an affinity towards Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray as head coach Kliff Kingsbury has fawned over him dating back to last fall. The only problem is is that they still have 2018 No. 10 overall pick in Josh Rosen in the fold.

Many have pointed to the Cardinals simply trading Rosen, with some looking to next week as a deadline with Arizona beginning their offseason program. But, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network on Wednesday, the team still hasn't committed to their top selection one way or another. 

"First of all, it's clear that they have not yet decided whether or not they are going to pick Kyler Murray, " Rapoport said on the network. "Still in their draft meetings, the Arizona Cardinals are right now. Have certainly not come to any sort of decision. We do know that Kliff Kingsbury loves Kyler Murray. He's been very outspoken about saying that, but, of course, he's not making the pick. General manager Steve Keim is." 

Rapoport adds: "If, in fact, they do take Kyler Murray, there's a couple things that I am told. First of all, next week's offseason conditioning program is not an actual deadline. They do not feel like they need to trade Josh Rosen by then or else. It's not being treated like anything. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if next week came and went and really nothing happened. They could, in fact, keep both quarterbacks until they decide not to.
