Giants GM Dave Gettleman shuts down Josh Rosen trade talk

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman said he was "not going there" when questioned about trade rumours for Arizona Cardinals quarterback Josh Rosen. Rosen's future with the Cardinals has come under question in the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft with many believing the Cardinals will select former Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick, then trade their current starter out of Arizona. As for the Giants' draft plan, Gettleman admitted there are some "pretty good" quarterbacks in this year's class, but insisted his team are not in any rush to draft a signal caller.

Saints’ 2019 draft options limited by past deals

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

The Saints have no time to waste if they want to win another Super Bowl with record-setting quarterback Drew Brees under center - which is why three of their top four 2019 draft slots have already been traded away. The Saints aren't slated to pick until late in the second round - 62nd overall - because they largely mortgaged the top of this year's draft in hopes of winning it all last season.

Dorsey, who has spent the past 16 months overhauling Cleveland's roster and reawakening ''the sleeping giant'' as he likes to call the Browns, doesn't currently have a first-round pick after trading it to the New York Giants in the stunning mega-deal for superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

Cardinals being coy about who will go at No. 1 overall

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

The Arizona Cardinals used the 10th overall pick of the 2018 draft on Josh Rosen, hoping the former UCLA star would be their quarterback of the future. Rosen had some ups and downs during his first season, as many rookies do, but did nothing to dissuade the Cardinals from believing he could be their guy for years to come. Kyler Murray's decision to play football not baseball creates a new option for an Arizona team with a new coach and a new offensive system.
