Reports: Cardinals trade Rosen to Dolphins

After extensive reports of negotiations, the Miami Dolphins finalized a deal on Friday to acquire quarterback Josh Rosen from the Arizona Cardinals, according to multiple reports.

Pro Football Talk reported earlier Friday that the Cardinals would send Rosen, likely along with a lower-round draft pick, to the Dolphins for their second-round pick, which was No. 48 overall.

Other reports indicated the deal was not final, and the Dolphins wound up trading down in Round 2 from No. 48 to No. 62. Ultimately, Miami sent the 62nd overall pick to Arizona for Rosen and a 2020 fifth-round pick, according to multiple reports.

With the 62nd overall pick, the Cardinals drafted wide receiver Andy Isabella out of UMass.

Rosen landed on the trade block only after the Arizona Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft on Thursday.

According to reports, the Cardinals took their decision down to the wire Thursday night and kept all options open in the event a trade offer or motivation to move another direction arrived. reported the Cardinals were firm with their asking price of a first-round pick, and found little interest.

Rosen unfollowed the Cardinals on social media sometime between Thursday night and midday Friday.

By moving Rosen, the Cardinals will be eating more than $16 million in dead money for 2018 contracts handed to Sam Bradford, Mike Glennon and Rosen, the 10th pick in the 2018 draft.

The Dolphins owe Rosen about $6.3 million over the next three seasons and will have the right to pick up his fifth-year option for 2022 if they wish.

Miami signed 36-year-old journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick to play quarterback after trading starter Ryan Tannehill to the Tennessee Titans in March.
