Josh Rosen could reportedly stay at UCLA to avoid being drafted by Browns
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Rosen would prefer to play for the New York Giants over the Browns. The UCLA star’s preference is so strong, in fact, that he may decide to return to school for his senior season if Cleveland commits to drafting him with the No. 1 overall pick. More from Schefter:
Privately, Rosen has expressed concern about winding up in Cleveland and would rather be with a more stable franchise, such as the Giants.
Rosen plans to sit down with his parents after the Cactus Bowl for a “serious conversation” before making a final decision about whether to turn pro. Whether Cleveland has the No. 1 overall pick could influence his decision, according to a source.
This isn’t the first report we have heard about a top college quarterback potentially avoiding the Browns. Cleveland has gone through an incredible number of quarterbacks in recent years, and Rosen might not want to become the next name on their infamous Jersey of Shame.
Rosen will not be playing in the Cactus Bowl against Kansas State on Tuesday, but that reportedly has to do with his health and not his draft status. Rosen said recently that he has not made up his mind about whether or not he will turn pro in 2018.
