Cardinals and Dolphins putting finishing touches on Josh Rosen trade

Josh Rosen and Kyler Murray will not be teammates for long.

Pro Football Talk reported on Friday afternoon that the Cardinals and Dolphins were close to a deal that would send a second-round pick to Arizona for the second-year quarterback. Miami was perhaps the only logical team remaining for the Cardinals to send Rosen after Arizona Murray with the No. 1 pick on Thursday night.

The Giants and Redskins drafted quarterbacks Daniel Jones and Dwayne Haskins with the sixth and 15th overall selections, respectively. That was after Cardinals GM Steve Keim didn’t begin shopping Rosen until minutes before the draft, and Arizona stood firm on a desire to recoup a first-round pick, according to Sports Illustrated.

With that hope now gone, they seem willing to accept a mid-second rounder for the UCLA product they traded up to draft at No. 10 a year ago.

Rosen, who attended the team’s mini-camp last week, reportedly wasn’t informed officially by new coach Kliff Kingsbury of the team’s plans until moments before the Murray pick was submitted. In the time since, Rosen unfollowed the Cardinals’ official accounts on Twitter and Instagram.

Miami has 36-year-old veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick presently above its depth chart at the position after trading Ryan Tannehill to Tennessee.

Rosen threw for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 14 games as a rookie.
