First Rounder Josh Rosen Is Behind Sam Bradford on Arizona’s QB Depth Chart
Bradford is getting paid $20 million this season to start games for the Cardinals.
When training camp opens this summer, the 10th pick of the draft will be second on the quarterback depth chart for the Arizona Cardinals.
Despite trading up to be able to draft him, Josh Rosen was not picked to be Arizona’s starting quarterback this year, according to Cardinals head coach Steve Wilks.
After inking former Eagles and Vikings QB Sam Bradford to a one-year deal worth $20 million in March, the Cardinals are expecting him to be their starter and want Rosen to back him up.
“We got Sam to be our starting quarterback and I would still say that is the case,” Wilks said. “I’m very excited about Josh … what he can bring. Every position is open for competition.”
It will be interesting to see how well that sits with Rosen, who said he was “pissed” and “really, really angry” about being picked behind Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold and Josh Allen.
Given how competitive he is, Rosen probably won’t be happy warming the bench for long.
