Have the Redskins proved to be favorites for Josh Rosen? It starts to appear that way.
All indications indicate that the Cardinals won Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray at the end of the month with the first overall victory in the 2019 NFL Draft. If that's the case, Arizona can not keep roses on the squad.
This means the cards must move their first-rounder 2018 without much leverage.
Enter the Redskins, a team with a long-term hole at QB. Washington wants to add a young pedestrian, but the current financial commitment for the injured Alex Smith makes it difficult.
Rosen would be perfect because the Cardinals have already paid his signing bonus and he owes less than $ 2 million for the 201
Murray's speculation about Arizona began to grow in the NFL Scouting Combine in February, and the rumors from Rosen to Washington began almost immediately thereafter. They do not slow down.
The latest came from ESPN's Todd McShay, who said of Rosen in his podcast: "I keep hearing about Washington, they are the most likely teams and they seem to be most interested in Josh Rosen."
Being the most likely makes sense. The rookie harvest of Signalrufern in the year 2019 lacks the star power.
Murray may be a star, but questions remain for Dwayne Haskins and Drew Lock. Still, expect both to go to the 15th grand total before the & # 39; skins draft.
Daniel Jones could be there at 15, and the Redskins will be preparing to visit the Duke QB next week. Also, expect a visit from West Virginia QB Will Grier.
Still, most talent judges would only rank Rosen behind Murray if the former UCLA star were in the 2019 draft class.
Josh Norris, a Draftow analyst at Rotoworld, believes Rosen may be suitable for the Redskins' attacks.
"Roses would be a great pickup," Norris said via text message. "I think his success is very much related to offensive line talent, and when he's healthy, Washington has a good one."
For months, the Redskins Park sources have realized that their selection in the first round is not related to a possible stake bid for Roses. But do not exclude a pack of picks spread over two seasons, such as a second round from 2019 and a third round from 2020, plus an extra round for the late round in each season.
For the Redskins, roses could be the rare interface of value and talent.
Rosen has tremendous influence on the Cardinals as the team moves forward with a new QB. Every NFL team knows this, and Arizona will not be completed with its 2018 investment of the tenth total.
Rosen was not a good beginner last year, but that does not mean he will not be good. And in Washington, he will not have the starting pressure right away, as Team Case Keenum and Colt McCoy have to fight against QB's launch in 2019.
Rosen to the Redskins is far from complete.
But as long as Washington sticks to its 15th election in 2019, the deal makes the most sense. With four picks among the first 96 selections, the Redskins have the war chest and the need to cancel this move.
But keep in mind that the Redskins Front Office usually takes big steps silently.
There was no indication that the & # 39; skins visited Alex Smith last year until it happened. Same year with Case Keenum.
Bruce Allen runs businesses in Washington, and Bruce Allen keeps his moves very close to the waistcoat.
That does not mean it will not happen. That certainly does not mean that it should not happen. Should it come to a deal anyway, the Redskins fans should be ready to wait all the way through, maybe even the day of the draft, for any news to pop up.
Or it could happen tomorrow.
The NFL is a wild ride. Buckle up. In the pursuit of roses, the Redskins seem to be in the driver's seat.
