Arizona Cardinals Steve Keim talks drafting Kyler Murray, keeping Josh Rosen

NFL: NFL Draft Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports

It seemed impossible.

Maybe not impossible, but at least improbable that the Arizona Cardinals would, for the second time in two seasons, draft a quarterback in the first round, but Steve Keim and company knew that their best player was Kyler Murray.

It was a tough decision to make, especially when you consider that Josh Rosen is sitting on a roster that lacks talent.

Yet, top talent, especially at the most important position in sports, always is a trump card.

Now, the question is what happens with Josh Rosen.

The Cardinals have taken calls, but they don’t feel like it is a rush or a priority to jettison Josh.

The Cardinals saw a unique talent at the top of the draft and are taking a big gamble.

Yet, it jives with the entire offseason.

Firing a first time head coach after one season, hiring a college coach with a losing record, why not double down on quarterbacks and see what sticks.

It’s a unique and different approach, but at the same time, it is something the Cardinals felt convicted to do, and that should be all we need to hear, for now.
