Redskins have ‘solid chance’ of trading for Josh Rosen
The Washington Redskins are among the teams that have been linked to Josh Rosen, and they appear to still be interested in the young quarterback despite the trade they made earlier this offseason.
Washington acquired Case Keenum in a trade with the Denver Broncos last month, and head coach Jay Gruden has repeatedly expressed confidence in Colt McCoy. Alex Smith is also still on the roster, though he is expected to miss the entire 2019 season after suffering a gruesome leg injury last year. Despite all that, ESPN’s John Keim feels there is still a “solid chance” the Redskins end up working out a trade for Rosen.
Gruden said over the weekend that Washington is only interested in drafting a quarterback who could start immediately, because the goal for the team is to win now and not rebuild. The same principles could be applied to the team’s reported interest in Rosen.
The Arizona Cardinals are widely expected to draft Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, though that apparently does not mean they will be in a rush to trade Rosen. But if and when they do, it would be a surprise if they don’t at least call the Redskins to field an offer.
