Josh Rosen has unfollowed the Arizona Cardinals on Instagram
On Friday, one day after the Arizona Cardinals made Kyler Murray the first overall pick in the NFL Draft, Josh Rosen has fought back in the most 2019 way possible. He has unfollowed the Arizona Cardinals account on Instagram.

Rosen was no doubt getting a lot of notifications last night after one of his old Instagram posts with Kyler Murray from 2015 went viral in the aftermath of the pick.
There was also this one from the Arizona Cardinals Twitter account that looks ridiculous in retrospect.

Publicly, the Cardinals seem to be maintaining the position that they can go forward with both Kyler Murray and Josh Rosen if they do not get a sweetheart deal for Rosen. That is a great position assuming you ignore people, personalities, and how the world works. Arizona became the first franchise to select quarterbacks in the first round in consecutive drafts since the Colts in 1982 and 1983 with Art Schlichter and John Elway. But that one comes with a caveat that Elway had already said he would not play for the Colts and was traded after the pick was made. Rosen has played nice publicly through this process until now, but with the draft engine churning on, we’ll see if that changes and a trade becomes inevitable.
