This never crossed my mind. I actually never thought back in April, whenever we traded for Josh Rosen, we might be discussing a trade designed for Rosen. Let me be the one to inform you, if you are pro-Kyler Murray or Dwayne Haskins for the first pick, this is simply not the article for you.
Does everyone be familiar with final implications that come with trading the quarterback in the QBs second yr?
About $10M worth of factors, as it would count against the cover to trade Rosen in any way. Significantly, it would cost the Cardinals $8M+ in dead cap, plus a undesirable $4M+ in cap savings. That’ s not a mistake, combined, it could be around $13M to trade Rosen.
Doing so would create a financial problem in an offseason where the ability to go after potential game changing offensive plus defensive free agents was a crucial to the change over.
Want more factors?
You trade Rosen and you wasted 3 draft recommendations to get him. What do you think they are going to get for Rosen? Some have got projected a first round pick. Actually? A second-year quarterback who fought mightily in year one? Poor numbers under pressure, average numbers in the limited time in a clean wallet? Look, I might be trashing your pet just a little bit, but that’ ersus just what other teams will be considering when the Cardinals ask for that cost, and who would blame them?
Investing Rosen would in my estimation, most likely net a third-round pick. Therefore , what would it look like in that type of situation? Short and simple, right here we go:
1 . 01: Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
2. 01: move rusher because someone slides lower. Maybe Jachai Polite
3. 01: Jordan 3rd round (Rosen trade): Brian Edwards/Tytus Howard/Michael Deiter
Seriously, consider it, you’ re taking a 5’ 10’ ’ quarterback, a second-tier advantage, and taking shots at linemen further down the board.
