Josh Rosen says he did not hear from Cardinals GM before or after trade

Josh Rosen

The Arizona Cardinals tried their best to make people think they had not made up their mind about taking Kyler Murray with the first overall pick leading up to the draft, and that apparently included keeping their former quarterback in the dark about it. In fact, Josh Rosen is still waiting to hear from Cardinals general manager Steve Keim.

In an appearance on “The Rich Eisen Show” Tuesday, Rosen spoke about the process leading up to him being dealt to the Miami Dolphins during the draft. He said Keim never called him to inform him about the trade, and he still has not heard from the GM.

There can’t be an easy way to tell your 2018 first-round pick that he is already being replaced by your 2019 first-round pick, but it feels like Keim should have had some sort of communication with Rosen. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury at least reached out to Rosen, though the message was less than inspiring.

We’ve already explained to you in detail how we feel Keim botched the Rosen situation, but not calling him to at least wish him well seems unprofessional. Granted, that is just Rosen’s side of the story. Perhaps Keim did reach out and Rosen just didn’t want to speak with him.
