There remains no indication from the Arizona Cardinals that they are willing to trade quarterback Josh Rosen.

On Tuesday, 98.7 FM Arizona’s Sports Station’s John Gambadoro disputed a report from NFL analyst Charley Casserly, who on NFL Network said one team told him Arizona was shopping its second-year quarterback. The Cardinals had no discussions about trading Rosen or what his value is, Gambadoro said.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter added Wednesday that “multiple teams inquired” about Rosen’s availability during the NFL Draft Combine, but the Cardinals “did not give those teams any indication” about a willingness to deal the No. 10 pick from the 2018 NFL Draft. Schefter’s league sources were from outside the Cardinals organization.

Of course, Arizona could later open its doors to negotiations, as both Gambadoro and Schefter said.

Cardinals general manager Steve Keim played coy at the combine when asked if Rosen was the team’s quarterback.

“Is Josh Rosen our quarterback? Yeah, he is right now, for sure,” Keim said.

In that media session and on 98.7 FM’s Bickley & Marotta, Keim left the door open for any possibility as the Cardinals consider who to select with the No. 1 pick in the draft. The Cardinals have maintained that Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray, among others, are all options and that a final decision has not yet been made.

Arizona has appeared quite willing to stir the pot regarding what it will do with the draft pick.

Keim has spoken openly about the possibility of trading down, something he won’t know until he builds his draft board and develops tiers of talent to understand the value of later picks. Head coach Kliff Kingsbury, meanwhile, has been quick to discuss his relationship with Murray, who he recruited out of high school while Kingsbury was head coach at Texas Tech.

On the team website’s Kingsbury Chronicle podcast, the head coach even said he was enjoying the rumor mill coming out of the NFL Draft Combine in Indianapolis.

“It makes it fun having the first pick because nobody knows if you are trying to throw smokescreens or telling the truth or what,” Kingsbury said.
