We'll never know, but there's a very strong possibility he would have ended up in NE if we didn't trade for him.Apparently a 2nd and a 5th is nothing value now. Who knew?
I know value is relative to how the player turns out but I disagree with the notion that the fins got some bargain basement deal here. If Rosen sat last year with an injury, sure. But he didn't. And was absolutely dreadfully terrible. His *value* should've taken a considerable hit.
Who else was in the bidding for his services again? That seems like an important piece of the puzzle.
They had a ton of picks and a need for a talented young QB on a very cheap deal, for that alone is was smart of Grier to get him, then you consider the low cap cost and the fact we turned our 2nd into a 2020 2nd and him.
Brilliant move, and I didn't even like Rosen lol, but the talent is there and he's a promising young QB (which this team sorely needs as well as NE).
