The Arizona Cardinals have stated that Sam Bradford is their starting quarterback, but they have also made it clear he’s going to be on a health plan that limits him to protect his oft-injured knees. This plan to protect Bradford could also be the one that ultimately keeps him from being the starter in the end, as Josh Rosen will have plenty of opportunities to shine.

As Steve Wyche of NFL Network reported Tuesday, Rosen will have a lot of chances to work with the team’s No. 1 offense this offseason.

He’s already impressed head coach Steve Wilks with his command of the huddle and abilities as a passer, per Wyche, and given how much the Cardinals gave up to move up to No. 10 to draft him, Rosen will not be held back if he excels.

If Bradford stays healthy and is clearly the better option, then there’s no doubt that he’ll be starting under center come Week 1. But if Rosen takes advantage of his chances to work with the starting unit and shines, we definitely shouldn’t rule out the rookie starting, either.

Baker Mayfield throws a mountain of shade at Josh Rosen .
