Top Quarterback Draft Prospect Josh Rosen Prefers Giants Over Browns

With Eli Manning’s career slowly coming to and end, the New York Giants are looking to replace the franchise quarterback who has brought them two Super Bowls during his tenure.

Originally, the Giants acquired Manning because he did not want to play for the San Diego Chargers. Manning, who made his thoughts clear, was swapped with Phillip Rivers and others which landed him in New York where he has spent the duration of his career.

Now, another quarterback draft prospect in UCLA’s Josh Rosen has made it known that he does not want to play for the Cleveland Browns who will most likely have the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Rosen has not interest in paying for the Browns and would rather player for the Giants, who currently have the second overall pick at this point in the season.

It was even reported that Rosen would consider staying at UCLA for another year is he knew that the Browns had the No. 1 overall pick and planned on picking him.

UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen would prefer to play for the Giants over the Browns and would be hesitant to come out in next year’s NFL draft if he knew that Cleveland was going to take him with the No. 1 overall pick, according to league sources familiar with the situation.

This is not the first time that a player has made it known that he does not want to play for the Browns. While it was never reported directly, there were rumors surrounding USC quarterback Sam Darnold that he would stay another year if the Browns had the No. 1 overall pick and would pick him.

While this may seem selfish by these players, it may be the exact opposite. The Browns have not had a consistent starting quarterback since the turn of the century and all the quarterbacks that have landed there have been very disappointing.

Regardless, this is all speculation at this point and nothing will be set in stone until draft night comes.
