Sam Bradford didn’t wait long to welcome Josh Rosen to the Cardinals. The team’s veteran quarterback sent a text message to the 10th overall pick the morning after the Cardinals selected Rosen.

The exchange was chronicled in the Cardinals’ documentary, “Flight Plan,” which the team website teased Tuesday. Rosen and his parents and agent were on their way to the Cardinals’ Tempe facility Friday when Rosen received the text from Bradford.

“Sam just texted me. Bradford,” Rosen tells his agent, Ryan Williams.

Rosen read the text out loud.

“He said, ‘Josh, what’s up, man? Welcome to Arizona,’” Rosen reads. “‘Just wanted to let you know that I look forward to playing with you. I’ll be an open book, so if you ever need anything or have any questions, feel free to ask. Hope all is well.’”

Rosen texted back.

Bradford likely is the bridge in Arizona, holding the job until Rosen is ready.

“First and foremost, I’m an Arizona Cardinal,” Rosen said at his introductory press conference. “It’s team before everything. . . . I’m going to compete my butt off every single day, but then again, I’m not going to be the guy that comes in and thinks he’s the man from Day 1. It’s a long process, and you’ve got to earn it.”

  1. It’s nice to see Sam has grown and didn’t cry like a beeatch this time unlike when the Champs drafted Carson.

  2. Sam Bradford is a great guy and is very talented but has trouble staying healthy. Cardinals fans will want Rosen in there as soon as possible, but I predict they will find him incredibly annoying by comparison.

  3. Yeah, well… there were TEN other players that didn’t text him. He’s gonna make them pay.

    Seriously, I hope he works out for the Cards.

  4. Rosen better listen…Bradford knows how to hustle the NFL. Look at the amount of money he’s made and keeps making.

  5. Ryan Williams had been peering over Josh’s shoulder at his phone, prior to the text, and Rosen said “Get your big nose out of here.”.

    We’re not talking about Rashaad Penny here , the running back your Hawks wayyyyyy over drafted out of desperation. Your fear is obvious, considering you are ON EVERY CARDINALS THREAD running your mouth, Arizona beat SEA with a 3rd string QB last year, No one is afraid them. Josh Rosen was the best QB in the draft on many boards ranked between the 3rd to 6th best overall player in the draft & definitely is the most NFL Ready, he is going to absolutely carve up whatever defense you guys have left up there in SEA. Please go crawl back under what ever rock u came from!!!!!

AZ has a top 5 defense, loaded offense and much better overall roster than what’s left up in SEA. Hawks are going to be the worst team in the NFC-West. Cardinals, Rams and 49ers keep on getting better while the Hawks are getting worse, as a Hawks fan you have no room to be taunting other fan bases considering the shape of your franchise.
