There seems to be some… animosity between former Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen and the organization that just traded him.
No, it’s not the fact that he was traded, although I’m sure that does sting a bit, it is more about the fact that Rosen still hasn’t heard privately from the man that called him their quarterback… for now.
"The only thing that really did kind of frustrate me through this whole process was like I still haven't heard from my old G.M.," Josh Rosen said on the Rich Eisen Show https://t.co/sJxVZUsEZR— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 14, 2019
Steve Keim made a big deal about the acquisition of Josh Rosen in 2018, spelled out his plan for Rosen and the future of the team.
All of that changed in less than a year and with it changed the plans at quarterback.
So, did Steve Keim just leave Rosen hanging in the wind out of indifference or was this simply a case of Keim needing a clean break without involving Josh?
Either way, it has definitely left a bad taste in Rosen’s mouth over the whole situation.
It’s understandable from Josh’s point of view. You hear a lot of good things about yourself publicly but all the rumors get to you. Then, the guy making the calls keeps it under wraps til the end and doesn’t even call?
However, the business side of the NFL is ugly and that can lead to situations like this one that play out in a negative way in the public eye.
Either way, it’ll be interesting to see if the Cardinals it Keim respond, but it’s likely to be mostly one sided at this point, as the Cardinals have moved on.
