Miami Dolphins reportedly set to acquire spurned Cardinals QB Josh Rosen

The Arizona Cardinals are excited about second-round pick Andy Isabella, the receiver they drafted with the 62nd overall pick in the 2019 draft. Conversely, the Cardinals are the new poster boys for mismanaging QB assets, sending off Rosen for a mid-second-rounder exactly one year after spending the 10th overall pick, plus third- and fifth-rounders to move up and acquire him.

If he were to play both, could he be as good as or better than Deion Sanders and Bo Jackson?

A bit later, that run continued with Central Michigan's Sean Bunting, Clemson's Trayvon Mullen, Vanderbilt's JoeJuan Williams, LSU's Greedy Williams - at one point considered the top defensive back in this crop - and Utah safety Marquise Blair.

Now the pair have been reunited, the Heisman Trophy victor and the first-year Arizona Cardinals head coach ushering in a new era in the desert.

On Arizona's end, they're likely hoping another team comes in and beats the Dolphins' offer, while Miami is hoping to land a "late round kickback" from the Cardinals, according to NFL.com.

Rosen was the fourth high-profile quarterback drafted a year ago, following Baker Mayfield (first to the Browns), Sam Darnold (third to the Jets), and Josh Allen (seventh to the Bills). "Like I said, I don't shy away from hard work. I can tell you I've never seen the combination he brings to the table". I feel like I'm not here to lose games or go through the motions.

Rosen is expressing his frustration in the most iGeneration way possible. The Cleveland Browns took Baker Mayfield first in the 2018 draft. Rosen, who threw for 2,278 and had a completion percentage of 55.2 in 2018, will now start fresh with a team that will look to him to help rebuild. Instead, the Giants took Duke quarterback Daniel Jones with the No. 6 overall pick.

So, for example, the Dolphins opened as +4 underdogs for their Week 1 matchup against Baltimore with Fitzpatrick as the presumed starter.
