In the ongoing debate as to how many games and starts Josh Rosen might get this season with the Cardinals 鈥?and the same as it relates to the other four quarterbacks that were selected in the first round of last month’s draft 鈥?it’s important to revisit history when musing about rookie NFL signal callers and how much action they may or may not see.
The wait could be longer in Baltimore for Louisville’s Lamar Jackson, the last pick in the first Womens Shaun Alexander Jersey round.

Jason Campbell, the 25th overall pick out of Auburn in 2005, also didn’t play a single down for the Redskins as a rookie. He sat and watched behind Mark Brunell and Patrick Ramsey.
