The jury remains out on Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen. Both on and off the field, he’s repeatedly called into question, which is something the New York Giants may want to investigate should they decide to swing a trade for him.
Luckily for the Giants, they have several of Rosen’s former teammates on their 90-man roster who would be willing to provide some inside information, including linebacker Markus Golden.
On Monday, Rosen arrived for the Cardinals’ offseason workout program despite swirling trade winds and was actually the first in the building. Ho-hum says Golden, who saw that every day during Rosen’s rookie campaign.
Veteran safety Antoine Bethea, who also played for the Cardinals last season, believes Rosen is destined for “great things” in 2019 regardless of where it is he plays.
“He’s going to be able to do some great things in 2019,” Bethea said prior to Super Bowl LIII. “For a young quarterback, his ball placement is great. . . The more play time he gets, the better he’s going to get.”
Bethea also praised Rosen’s locker-room leadership and the relationships he forged with his teammates, which the young quarterback has previously been scrutinized for.
Whatever the case may be, the comments from Rosen’s teammates and former teammates don’t match those of the reports. What that really means behind-the-scenes, only those who experience it truly know. But if the Giants want to take a flier out on Rosen, both Golden and Bethea seem as if they’d approve.
