Patrick Peterson has been getting a lot of text messages from Josh Rosen

Before the draft, Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen said he couldn’t wait to have teammates again. His new teammates may soon be longing for the days before Rosen joined the team.

To be clear at the outset, it’s not about his ability. Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson expressed a belief on Thursday that Rosen can be a franchise quarterback. But Peterson joked that Rosen already has, essentially, Hall of Fame texting skills, because Rosen has been sending Peterson a lot of text messages.

It was a like a 10-page message,” Peterson said with a laugh, via azcentral.com. “I’m like, ‘Why are you texting me this for? I’m freaking enjoying dinner with my wife right now.'”

Rosen keeps sending texts to Peterson, asking questions about buying a house to in-season body maintenance.

“Josh has been texting me like there’s no tomorrow,” Peterson said. “I’m trying to get him with a realtor so he has place to lay his head.”

Peterson may want to steer him toward a place that doesn’t have electricity, so that Rosen won’t be able to charge his phone.

  1. LOL. Sounds like an anxious kid that wants to know the lay of the land. He’s too young to realize Peterson has a wife and kinda does things outside of football. 😀

  2. Rosen reaching out to Peterson is a good sign. It indicates he’s building relationships and wants to the things that will make him successful.

  3. Wait till he texts the self proclaimed football maven Arians. Even though he is gone from the Cardinals he knows everything.

  4. Texting isn’t not a sign of leadership, it sounds like Rosen is annoying Peterson. Text him and offer to buy him dinner And let peterson pick the spot. Then you have a block of his time to Be inquisitive. It’s pretty rude of Rosen to start dropping mission statement sized text messages to the leader of the team. However, you can’t beat him up too bad over it as it does show ambition.

  5. Would the preference be to never have been texted at all? I’d take it as a compliment, as a leader of the team.

    Rosen is a ‘serial texter’ like one of my daughters. I love hearing from her but at the same time, sometimes certain times I’m not in the position for a long drawn out textathon. But it’s WAY better than having her ignore me.

  6. Enough with all this “texting” -it’s called a phone for a reason, hit the DIAL button and TALK on the phone when it’s something longer than “I’ll be there at 8” or “What movie did u want to watch?”

  7. rosen will pass on 9 other houses before selecting his 10th. He’s that upset at the world.

  8. Dude should be in the play book and have a realtor deal with his living arrangements. If anyone has text priority should be the coaching staff and his OLine. A good relationship with your LT seems more prudent if you’re a QB than it is with a DB. He does have the appearance of a frat boy trying too hard.

    Funny, what I am also always telling the kids when I want them to get off my lawn too.

  10. The media is ruthless when it comes to trying to smear somebody. And many of the lemmings that read the press lap it up hook, line and sinker.

    Didn’t excessive texting just get some Panthers coach fired?

    Try and see if you can figure out the difference

  12. If it takes more than a sentence or two CALL THE PERSON. I love how people will spend 20 minutes texting back and forth to discuss an issue that a 2 minute actual conversation can solve.

    I mostly agree with you, especially the latter part about when it’s longer than short messages and sorting logistics. But communications evolve. I’m sure someone older than us is wondering why they are using a cell phone at all, and why it’s not a rotary phone on a party line and if someone is out and it’s not an emergency just leave a message with the kid/wife/maid/secretary.

  14. What a terrible person. Clearly this is line with all of his other off-field issues like being too smart…

  15. “Enough with all this ‘texting’ -it’s called a phone for a reason, hit the PHONE button and PHONE on the phone when it’s something longer than ‘I’ll be there at 8’ or ‘What movie did u want to watch?'”

    I fixed it.
