Josh Rosen’s uncertainty in Arizona could be the perfect opportunity for the New York Giants to find their quarterback of the future.

Although general manager Dave Gettleman has downplayed the quarterback position, the New York Giants have to look for Eli Manning’s eventual replacement. A truly bizarre situation with Josh Rosen and the Arizona Cardinals could be the ticket to finding Manning’s successor.

Arizona’s new head coach seems enamored with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. If they select Murray with the first overall pick, the Cardinals would look to deal Rosen—the quarterback they took with the 10th pick in 2018.

According to Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, the Giants have had internal discussions about Rosen and reached out to the Cardinals earlier.

“The Giants have already had internal discussions about the possibility of trading for Rosen, as SNY has reported, and an NFL source said they’ve also spoken to the Cardinals, too,” Vacchiano wrote. “Those conversations, the source said, were very preliminary and were just an attempt by the Giants to get an idea of the Cards’ intentions and what the price for Rosen might be.”

The price for Rosen is still unclear, but he remains a viable option for the Giants. There are reports that New York is eyeing Duke’s Daniel Jones in the first round, but there is still a lot that can unfold before the draft.

Gettleman has to know that the quarterback position should be on his radar. However, he seems hellbent on building a championship-level defense. Perhaps he will punt on any quarterback this year and use both first-round picks to solidify the defense.

As is tradition, with the NFL draft, a lot will change before the night is done.
