Cardinals reportedly receive two trade offers for Josh Rosen, want to 'save face' in deal
A new report indicates there are, in fact, teams calling Arizona about its former first-rounder

The Arizona Cardinals quarterback has been a regular subject of trade speculation for much of the offseason, what with new coach Kliff Kingsbury Heisman Trophy winner and potential No. 1 draft pick Kyler Murray (check out ).

But some reports suggest Arizona has the second-year signal-caller.
Now, Bleacher Report's Matt Miller has added fuel to the fire, reporting Friday that the Cardinals have received two trade offers for Rosen to date. Per an anonymous AFC executive cited by Miller, Arizona wants to hold out for as close to a first-rounder as it can get in order to "save face" after drafting Rosen 10th overall less than a year ago.
"They're hoping the closer to the draft we get," Miller writes, "some team is going to realize they will miss out on (Dwayne) Haskins or (Drew) Lock ... or just remember that Rosen is better than either of them ... and pony up a late first-rounder."
