The Los Angeles Rams could see Josh Rosen on the move from the NFC West if the second-year quarterback ends up on the Miami Dolphins through a trade.
While the Los Angeles Rams seemed to have a strong feeling the Arizona Cardinals would go with Kyler Murray at No. 1 in the 2019 NFL Draft, the next thing the NFC champions should be keeping an eye on is where Josh Rosen potentially ends up.
Around this time last year, there was plenty of excitement about Rosen joining a NFC West division that already consisted of two other young quarterbacks on the rise in Jared Goff and Jimmy Garoppolo.
Instead, Murray will be the young quarterback on the rise representing the Cardinals, as the team decided to give up on Rosen after only one season.
Fair or not, Arizona was in a difficult position with the top overall pick since the last thing they wanted to do is look back wishing they selected Murray if he turns out to be the better quarterback in the NFL.
As for what this means for Rosen, well since the team was already considering the possibility of dealing the former first-round pick in a trade, it seems like only a matter of time before the UCLA product ends up elsewhere.
Nothing is set in stone at the moment, but depending on what happens Friday night, the Rams could see Rosen officially be on the move from the NFC West if he ends up joining the Dolphins.
First off, the Rams must be thrilled they have nothing to do with this mess that Arizona has brought on themselves since one can only imagine the frustration by the fan base over the team selecting a quarterback in the first round two years in a row.
Then again, if Los Angeles had their preference over which quarterback they would prefer to face for years to come, it’s safe to assume Rosen would be the winner since Murray looks like more of the threat, especially with the ability to be explosive with his legs.
Time will tell when it comes to seeing where Rosen ends up for the 2019 season, and while the Rams won’t be losing too much sleep in the end results, this still sort of impacts their future competing in the NFC West now that Murray is officially part of the picture.
