Independents’ Day: Canada’s Harry Rosen Has Owned the Men’s Market for Decades

To many in the NFL, Rosen's reaction was indicative of the scouting report on him heading into the draft — he may be the most talented, complete quarterback in the draft, but he can also be outspoken and brash. Since the Cardinals drafted Rosen, there has only been growing criticism of Rosen's attitude, both on the record and off, and murmurs that he is not well-liked. On
