The Josh Rosen-Cardinals divorce is nearly complete.
The team has a deal in place to send last year’s No. 10 overall selection to the Dolphins for the 48th pick in this year’s draft, according to multiple reports.
As late as hours before the draft the Giants had been linked to possibly landing Rosen, but that obviously went out the window when they selected Daniel Jones at No. 6 to be Eli Manning‘s successor.
Multiple sources say the Dolphins are close to a deal for QB Josh Rosen, and that a deal may actually be tentatively done. Arizona would get pick No. 48 from Miami.

The value going back to Arizona surely means the Giants and general manager Dave Gettleman could have likely landed Rosen had they desired so. However, they passed on him in 2018 by taking eventual Rookie of the Year Saquon Barkley and did the same a year later.
Rosen struggled in his first year with Arizona. He completed 55.2 percent of his passes with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions in 14 games (13 starts).
The Cardinals fired their former coach, Steve Wilks, and hired Kliff Kingsbury, who has always thought highly of Kyler Murray. Arizona took Murray with the first pick, ensuring that Rosen would be on the move.
And that place is apparently Miami.
