When Josh Rosen took the field for his first live work in the NFL, the results were less than optimal.
Much of that was outside of Rosen’s control, but that should hopefully change in the Arizona Cardinals second preseason tilt.
According to Head Coach Steve Wilks, the Arizona Cardinals rookie quarterback Josh Rosen will be getting some work with the first team offense in week two of the Cardinals preseason.
Wilks said Sam Bradford will play more this week in New Orleans. Also said Josh Rosen will play with the first unit in the game. #CardsCamp— Darren Urban (@Cardschatter) August 13, 2018
This will be especially important for Rosen for more than just getting some work with a more competent group of players.
Yes, Rosen needs to get a shot working with the ones to really show what he can do, but also, there needs to be some cohesion between Rosen and that group.
As much as the Arizona Cardinals are counting on Sam Bradford to be the starter for the 2018 season, they also need to be realistic.
Bradford’s health is going to be the focus of the entire season, and knowing that Rosen can step in with little to no issues will be important.
It also is important to know where he is in his progress.
Rosen’s future is the key to the Arizona Cardinals future, but they also need to know what they have in the present and they’ll get their first look on Friday against the New Orleans Saints.
