The Miami Dolphins made a big splash at quarterback Friday night, acquiring Josh Rosen in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals for a second-round selection this year and a fifth-rounder in 2020.
The following day on Saturday, Josh Rosen took to social media and thanked the Cardinals organization and its fans and congratulated them on getting “a helluva player” in Murray, while adding he couldn’t be more excited to be a member of the Dolphins.
For the past few months, the Cardinals front office stayed on task as they continued to tell the media that Rosen was their quarterback, but with the hiring of Kliff Kingsbury at head coach, he clearly wanted a QB who would be better suited to run his offense.
As for Rosen, he had a rough rookie year, completing 55 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and an NFL-low 66.7 passer rating in 13 starts (3-10 record).
In his defense, he did all that behind arguably the NFL’s worst offensive line and on a team that fired its coaching staff after one season.
