30. Arizona Cardinals

One day, Josh Rosen may be a great NFL quarterback, but as long as he’s playing behind the current Arizona Cardinals‘ offensive line, that may not happen for quite some time.

While it’s hard to really knock the Cardinals for their recent fall from grace, as they did lose one of the league’s premier offensive minds when Bruce Arians promptly retired because of his declining health, but this team is far from elite at virtually any position across the board.

No wonder Patrick Peterson has reportedly begged for a trade so he can finally contend for a championship.

Having Rosen on the roster certainly helps with the franchise’s potential, as he’s a better quarterback than also recently retired Carson Palmer, and former Philadelphia Eagles placekeeper Sam Bradford, the team still needs to shore up their roster before they can take a shot at the NFC West, especially as the Los Angeles Rams continue to lay waste to the entirety of the west coast.

Much like Rosen’s former team the UCLA Bruins, it’s going to be a long rest of the 2018 calendar year.

But hey, at least the Cardinals have their quarterback in place for the next decade-plus, that’s something, right?
