As we head into organized team activities for all 32 NFL teams, let us take a look at one burning question each fan base may have heading into OTAs.
The 2018 NFL season cannot get here soon enough, so it is never too early to start to look at some burning questions for each team. All 32 of the teams in the league have some big question marks heading into team activities, and we try to take a look at one huge one for each franchise.
Whether it is a new quarterback, additions on defense, or coaching changes, each team will have an area that has a new look in 2018. Take a look at one burning question each team’s fans should have heading into the summer.
Arizona Cardinals: When will we see Josh Rosen?
After the 2017 NFL season, the Arizona Cardinals not only lost their head coach Bruce Arians, but also starting quarterback Carson Palmer. Palmer decided it was time to hang up his cleats, leaving the team with a gaping hole at the quarterback position.
Early in the offseason, the Cardinals put in a quick fix at the position, signing free agent Sam Bradford. Throughout his NFL career, Bradford has been extremely injury-prone, so the Cardinals fan base cannot be comfortable with him under center for the long run.
During the 2018 NFL Draft, the Cardinals grabbed their future at the position, selecting Josh Rosen with the No. 10 overall pick in the first round. The team actually traded up to get Rosen, as they held the No. 15 pick initially, so that shows how much they wanted his services in the desert.
Rosen is an incredible quarterback prospect, but he is not without his falls. The big question in Arizona is when Rosen will find the field, whether by Bradford’s ineffective play, or another injury to the veteran signal-caller. Last season, Case Keenum stepped in and led the Minnesota Vikings to the playoffs in Bradford’s absence, earning himself a big contract from the Denver Broncos.
David Johnson is back healthy, and Larry Fitzgerald decided to come back for another run at a championship. New head coach Steven Wilks will likely try to get the most out of Bradford with a veteran group on offense, but if he falters, Rosen is smart enough to come in and start as a rookie for the Cardinals this season.
