TEMPE — The Arizona Cardinals have signed first-round pick Josh Rosen to a four-year contract with a team option for a fifth.

Terms of the deal with the former UCLA quarterback weren’t disclosed Thursday.

Rosen was the 10th overall pick in the draft. He completed 712 of 1,170 passes for 9,340 yards and 59 touchdowns at UCLA.

COLEMAN

The Arizona Cardinals have signed fullback Derrick Coleman to a one-year contract.

Coleman is the first deaf player on offense to play in the NFL and he has spent four seasons in the league.

He has played in 47 games since joining the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted rookie free agent out of UCLA.

Coleman played in all 16 games with the Atlanta Falcons last season with a career-high 16 special teams tackles

He spent the previous three years with Seattle, appearing in 31 games.

The Cardinals’ previous coach, Bruce Arians, did not use a fullback in his system but new coach Steve Wilks and his offensive coordinator Mike McCoy do.
