Report: Josh Rosen will likely be traded to Washington before free agency

As the Kyler Murray-to-Arizona rumors intensify, there’s some smoke pouring out of the combine that Josh Rosen could be on the move to Washington.

On Saturday, NFL insider Tony Pauline shared that he’s heard the Redskins “have openly spoken about trading for Josh Rosen.”

One day later, and Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel added fuel to that fire.

Earlier on Sunday, it was reported that Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury has been telling people that Kyler Murray coming to Arizona was a “done deal.”

If that is true, then Rosen heading to Washington makes sense. Colt McCoy isn’t going to win many games, and it’s not even known if Alex Smith will ever play again, let alone play at any point in 2019.

Rosen has plenty of arm talent but may not be a great fit in Arizona with Kingsbury calling the offense. Murray, on the other hand, is a perfect fit.

Trading Rosen to Washington would seem like a win-win for all parties involved.
