The long anticipated Josh Rosen trade finally became official Friday evening. One day after selecting Kyler Murray No. 1 overall, the Arizona Cardinals sent Rosen to the Miami Dolphins for a second-round pick in 2019 and a 2020 fifth-round pick.

Rosen had to know this was coming. Earlier on the day he unfollowed the Cardinals on Instagram. His next move on the social media site was to respond to the blockbuster trade.

It goes without saying that Rosen has to be happy about this new start. His only season in Arizona after being a top-10 pick last year didn’t go too swimmingly.



Once the Cardinals hired Kliff Kingsbury and received the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, it became clear Rosen wouldn’t be long in the desert.

He now has an opportunity to become the face of the Dolphins’ franchise in South Beach. It could be a match made in heaven.
