TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have signed first-round pick Josh Rosen to a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth.
Terms of the deal with the former UCLA quarterback weren't disclosed Thursday. But according to NFL.com, the contract will pay Rosen nearly $17.84 million over four years with a signing bonus of about $11 million.
Rosen was the 10th overall pick in the draft. He completed 712 of 1,170 passes for 9,340 yards and 59 touchdowns at UCLA. "I don't think we've ever signed a rookie, day one, walking in the door," Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said, per the team's website. Which also added that Rosen and the rest of the rookies will have their first practice in the NFL Friday morning. They arrived to the facility Thursday afternoon to get a physical, get sized for equipment and take part in a team meeting Thursday night. Rosen also got a chance to meet fellow quarterback Sam Bradford for the first time.
