When the Cardinals drafted Kyler Murray with the first overall pick last night, it was obvious that Josh Rosen’s days in Arizona were numbered.
Rosen, who was drafted 10th overall last year, had a rough first season as the Cardinals quarterback but many still believe he can be competent starting quarterback in the NFL.
Now it looks like his second chance will come in Miami, as the Dolphins traded to make him their franchise quarterback today.
The Cardinals received a late second round pick from Miami in the trade, which they used to select wide receiver Andy Isabella from UMass.
For the Dolphins this is a great low-risk, high-reward move as they did not have to give up too much draft capital to get the deal done.
If Rosen plays well, the Dolphins will finally have the franchise quarterback they have been searching for.
If Rosen is as bad as he was as a rookie, then the Dolphins will find themselves at the top of next year’s draft, just like the Cardinals this year, where they can then take their franchise quarterback.
Sounds like a win-win for the Dolphins, no matter what happens from here.
Madden Player Ratings Released
There is only one video game on the market when it comes to football and that game is Madden.
Madden has become a part of the NFL in a lot of ways, with the “Madden Cover Curse” being one of the themes we here talked about during the season.
Another annual tradition when it comes to Madden is the release of player ratings, as they are a great indicator for a player’s perceived value.
Well it is that time of the year again, as EA Sports has announced those ratings ahead of the game’s release at the beginning of August.
Do you think Phillip Rivers is a better quarterback than Aaron Rodgers?
No, well Madden does.
Aside from underrating of one of the most talented quarterbacks in the NFL, there isn’t too much to dispute when it comes to the quarterback ratings. Here are the ratings for the top running backs and wide receivers.
For my money, Saquon Barkley is the best running back in the NFL, but Madden thinks he still has to follow up his rookie season to pass Todd Gurley, Ezekiel Elliot, Le’Veon Bell and Melvin Gordon on their rating list.
As far as receivers, DeAndre Hopkins proved to be the best receiver in the NFL, by going a year without dropping a pass, and rightfully deserved to be the only skills position player with a 99 rating.
He wasn’t however the only player to receive a 99 rating, as Madden crowned four players worth of that distinction.
The other three 99 rated players all play defense, as Khalil Mack, Aaron Donald and Bobby Wagner have all proven to be elite on that side of the ball.
Madden 20 will be released on August 2nd and will be available on all major gaming platforms.

Now before we get into this list one thing needs to be made clear, there is spoilers that lie ahead as we look back at the Best Sports Movies of all-time.
Ezekiel Elliot Threatening Hold Out to Land New Contract From Cowboys
If you have been watching the Dallas Cowboys closely over the past three years, you know that Ezekiel Elliot is the engine that makes them go.
When Zeke is out there eating and picking up first downs, the Cowboys can be one of the powerhouses in the NFC. Without him, they are just another pedestrian team fighting it out for a Wild Card spot.
Because of his immense value to the team, Elliot is contemplating a holdout for the upcoming season, as he tries to secure a massive payday before it is too late.
The problem for the Cowboys is that Elliot is not the only player due to get paid. Dallas also has to come to terms with last season’s trade prize, Amari Cooper, who they dealt a first round pick to acquire.
Also let’s not forget about the quarterback, as Dak Prescott is due for a new contract as well.
The question remains if the Cowboys can really afford to pay all three players market value, without sacrificing nearly all of the their room under the salary cap.
One of the interesting developments for the Cowboys to monitor is how the Los Angeles Chargers handle their situation with fellow Pro Bowl running back Melvin Gordon.
Like Elliot, Gordon wants a new contract, but is demanding a trade if he doesn’t get one. The Chargers coming to terms with Gordon could establish a market for Elliot. The problem is that whatever market that is, the Cowboys will have to exceed it to keep Elliot.
The one holdup in Elliot getting paid is that he has been a constant problem off the field, as he continues to find himself in legal trouble.
Putting the legal troubles aside, there is no dispute that Elliot is one of the best players in the NFL and worthy of getting paid.
Elliot has averaged 4.7 yards per carry through his first three seasons in the NFL and has led the league in rushing twice.
Since coming into the NFL, the only year Elliot didn’t led the league in rushing was in 2017, when he only played 10 games due to a suspension.
