Not that this comes as much of a surprise, but the Green Bay Packers are not interested in Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen, according to Mike Silver of NFL Network.
Aaron Rodgers probably has at least a few years left in the tank at age 35, so pursuing a trade for Rosen at this point just wouldn’t make much sense for the Packers.
With the Cardinals seeming locked in on University of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with their first overall pick in the NFL Draft later this month, Rosen, whom Arizona took with its first-round selection last spring, seems like the odd man out.
The 22-year-old, who played his collegiate football at UCLA, was originally selected by the Cardinals with the 10th overall pick last year, with the Cards actually trading up to get him.
However, Rosen had a very disappointing rookie campaign, starting 12 games and throwing for just 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 14 interceptions while completing a meager 55.2 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 66.7.
To be fair, Rosen is still very young, and it’s not like he had a whole lot of weapons in the Cardinals’ offense this past season, but Arizona seems to be much more intrigued with the prospect of having Murray under center long term than Rosen.
The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Chargers were rumored to be interested in Rosen earlier this offseason, although that talk has cooled down. The New York Giants were seen as another possibility, but it seems more likely they will draft Eli Manning’s successor with the sixth overall pick of the draft.
