The biggest storyline heading into the NFL Draft was if the Cardinals were prepared to abort the Josh Rosen experiment after one year and draft Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray with the first overall pick. They did, and shipped Rosen for a second round pick and a future fifth rounder to Miami.
While Rosen’s time in Arizona was unremarkable, he has a chance to reboot his career with the Dolphins and a new staff of former Patriots coaches, and simultaneously escape the continuing Cardinals rebuild. Former NFL scout and NFL Network Analyst Bucky Brooks joined The Herd today, and explained why he sees similarities between the Rosen deal and the trade that brought Falcons backup Brett Favre to Green Bay where he launched his Hall of Fame career.
The Dolphins essentially gave up a bag of footballs to get Rosen, and if he can perform like a Top 10 pick in Miami, the Dolphins may have stumbled into their version of Favre. If Miami gets 1/2 of what the Packers got with Favre, the trade is still a steal.
