USC quarterback Sam Darnold was already reportedly considering not entering the NFL Draft if it meant he could land with the Cleveland Browns, and apparently UCLA quarterback Josh Rosen may be in the same mindset.
“Privately, Rosen has expressed concern about winding up in Cleveland and would rather be with a more stable franchise, such as the Giants.”
Darnold has thrown for more than 3,700 yards and 26 touchdowns during his standout season at UCLA.
A similar situation resulted in the Giants’ current franchise quarterback Eli Manning working his way out of landing with the then-San Diego Chargers.
A loss to the Chicago Bears would lock up the No. 1 overall pick for the Browns.
