With his future floating in the air, and the Redskins emerging as the favorite to trade for him, Josh Rosen showed up for work on Monday, still trying to impress his current bosses.
The quarterback was the first to enter the building on Monday morning when the Cardinals began their offseason conditioning program. According to the NFL Network.
Rosen may have been entering an uncomfortable situation, with new head coach Kliff Kingsbury potentially looking at his replacement with No. 1 pick in Kyler Murray, whom he previously recruited for Texas A & M. When he was head coach of Texas Tech last fall, Kingsbury said he would select Murray if he had the first choice, although since then he has tried to downplay those comments, stating that "Josh is our man."
But now Kingsbury has the first selection, which means that Rosen could be leaving after playing just one season in Arizona. Last year's No. 10 pick could go to the Redskins, and Peter King of NBC said Washington is his "favorite in the clubhouse" to get Rosen if he's traded. King also mentioned the Giants, Broncos and Dolphins as potential trading partners, but said he could decide if the Redskins give in and offer a second-round selection for Rosen instead of a third.
The Redskins tried to replace Kirk Cousins last year by trading Alex Smith, but the veteran broke his leg in a hideous injury midway through the season. They ended up having to start like Josh Johnson, Colt McCoy and even Mark Sanchez in the final stretch.
Washington traded for Broncos quarterback Case Keenum last month, but could still be looking for a sign of his future.
