Cardinals Sign Rookie QB Josh Rosen To Four-Year, $17.8M Deal
The UCLA product — who was selected 10th overall in this year’s NFL Draft — is set to earn almost $17.8 million as part of the deal, according to NFL.com.
Per NFL.com, Rosen’s deal also includes a signing bonus of approximately $11 million.
The Cardinals started their three-day rookie minicamp on Friday. Rosen’s deal includes a fifth-year option — just like most first-round rookie contracts — for 2022.

Rosen was one of five quarterbacks to be drafted in the first round this year. A player who suffered several injuries during his time at UCLA, he is the first of the Cardinals’ draft selections to sign an official contract with the team. Rosen drew headlines the day after the first round of the NFL draft, when he said he was furious to have been picked 10th. He even called the nine picks that came before him “mistakes,” before adding he was happy to be chosen by the Cardinals.
