In the 2018 NFL Draft, the Arizona Cardinals traded their third- and fifth-round picks to move up to No. 10 overall to take quarterback Josh Rosen.

One season later, he now faces possible uncertainty for his future with the team, approaching the 2019 draft.

The glaring question from now until April 25 will be: will Rosen stay or will he go?

With speculation growing of prospect Kyler Murray going No. 1 overall to the Cardinals, talks have begun about where Rosen could end up — and for what price.

NBC Sports’ Peter King cited two sources who’ve said that Rosen’s trade value is worth a third-round pick.

One of his sources is former Cardinals quarterback (2005-09) and Hall of Famer Kurt Warner.

“I would give a three for Josh,” Warner told King.

The other source, an anonymous NFL GM, said, “Probably a three,” which is “not what the Cardinals would think his value is.”

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport tweeted that free agent quarterback Tyrod Taylor was traded for a third rounder, saying that Rosen should be worth more.

In 13 starts, the 22-year-old Rosen threw for 2,278 yards with 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He was sacked 45 times and posted a 66.7 quarterback rating, the lowest of any rookie.

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim’s decision with the No. 1 overall pick is critical in Arizona’s future as a franchise, and possibly his job security.

“Is Josh Rosen our quarterback? Yeah, he is, right now, for sure,” Keim said at the NFL Scouting Combine last week.
