David Johnson: I ignore Josh Rosen trade talk, told him to ignore it

Amid talk that Josh Rosen could be one-and-done in Arizona, one high-profile teammate thinks Rosen needs to tune it out.

Cardinals running back David Johnson said he wants Rosen to block out the noise, and hopes everyone else does as well.

“I ignore it. I tell him to ignore it,” Johnson said. “I’ve definitely figured out how to ignore it and I told him he has to, too.”

Still, everyone knows that there’s a widespread belief the Cardinals are looking to trade Rosen and draft Kyler Murray first overall. Johnson was also asked what he’d think of the Cardinals drafting Murray.

“I like Josh,” Johnson said, before adding, “It’s a business and we all know that.”

It is a business, and it’s a business where players have to know their jobs aren’t safe. Rosen may be elsewhere soon.

  1. If there’s one guy I am hoping has a good season this year, it’s David Johnson.

  2. I could see Belichick throwing in an offer. Rosen would really benefit from Josh McDaniels’ offence. The O-line is looking good, a solid run game. The low cap charge for the next 3 years is very attractive. And he would have a year or two to really appreciate the work the most successful QB puts in every week.

  3. Johnson may very well be a valuable trade chip himself for a team trying to rebuild. Not surprised he has adopted this mindset.

  4. My mother had a philosophy that she drilled into to my since Junior High…….
    ” If you can’t control it, don’t worry about it. Don’t let it upset you. Go about you your day as if it doesn’t effect you.”

    Rosen can’t do anything about the trade talk and who the Cards might draft. He just needs to go about his business and not let it effect him.

  5. “Rosen can’t do anything about the trade talk and who the Cards might draft. He just needs to go about his business and not let it effect him.”

    If he had a better rookie season and offseason, this wouldn’t be an issue. In many ways, he does/did have control.

  6. I’m trying to ignore it to David. But red stand writers will not let it die. He’s another team’s false sense of hope and should be Arizona’s future. #HTTR!

    Also David Johnson: Welcome to the desert Kyler Murray!

  8. @24thusername….you and David Johnson are not alone. Too bad it all boils down to how drunk Keim is on draft day.

  9. DJ got paid and flat out quit. The O line was bad, but he could care less out there. He went from a lion on the field to a scared puppy with it’s tail between it’s legs. He went from breaking big time tackles to falling down on arm tackles. Another case of paying a guy too early and paying a guy who simply wanted the paycheck and lost his drive to become the best.

  10. @thefiestyone : too bad it all boils down to how drunk Keim is on draft day.

    Hahahaha best comment I’ve read in awhile. Seriously, how does Keim still have a job?

  11. What would Arizona have to gain by pretending to be interested in Kyler Murray?

    We have seen numerous other NFL teams trade the #1 or #2 overall pick to a team chasing a QB, and hey did it without pretending to be interested in that QB.

    Actually, I can’t really remember a team sitting at #1 or #2 who pretended to be so interested in a QB just to trade the pick.

    ===========================================

    Why does everyone keep saying that. To my knowledge, the name Josh Rosen has never come out of his mouth. You have no clue what he thinks of the dude.

  13. Hopefully josh wears a star on his helmet soon. If Prescott thinks he is worth 30 million. I would trade him. Rosen has tools enough to run the Dallas offense

  14. Everybody in Phoenix is ignoring it, except the media and PFT. It’s as pointless as dumb mock drafts, draft “grades” that come out 15 minutes after the draft when nobody has taken a snap yet, etc. Let the situation play out, THEN it’s worth paying some attention to.
