When the story came out Sunday that UCLA QB Josh Rosen seemed to prefer going to the New York Giants over the Browns, it was just another slap in the face for the franchise that is one game away from an 0-16 season.
The story though seems to be 100 percent true, even more so after today a tweet from ESPN NFL Nation reporter Josh Weinfuss, who has a direct quote from Rosen on getting drafted at one or two.
UCLA QB Josh Rosen on getting drafted by certain teams, if he comes out this year: “I’d rather be a lower pick at the right team than a higher at the wrong team.”

Rosen has thrown for 26 touchdowns and 10 picks this season for the Bruins, throwing for close to 3800 yards.
If the Browns want him, no one can stop them since they will have the first overall pick in the draft (again), but reading the comments from Rosen they might want to think twice if they want a player who already sounds like he might not want to be here.
Former Browns wide out Andrew Hawkins put out an interesting tweet regarding the Rosen situation.
I dont care Josh. Youre going to be a Brown. And u better come in and ball! https://t.co/W3xqHsY9x6
