Josh Rosen seems to have left a good impression on at least one of his former teammates.
DE Markus Golden, whom the Giants signed to a one-year deal this offseason, praised the Cardinals quarterback on Twitter after NFL Network's Ian Rapoport tweeted that he was the first player in the building on the first day of offseason conditioning.
Golden said that should hardly be a surprise to anyone that knows Rosen.
"He was the first in the building as a rookie to! Great Guy and player!" he tweeted back at Rapoport.

The compliment comes as Rosen finds himself surrounded by trade rumors as the Cardinals mull whether or not to draft Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick.
Arizona traded up to select Rosen with the 10th overall pick in last year's draft, but with new head coach Kliff Kingsbury and his infatuation with Murray has the rumor mill buzzing.
SNY's Ralph Vacchiano reported in March that the Giants were having internal discussions about Rosen, but still did not know if the Cardinals were fully committed to drafting Murray and trading Rosen.
The Giants are meeting with a number of quarterback prospects in this year's draft, including Dwayne Haskins, Drew Lock and Daniel Jones but Rosen could present itself as another option.
Per Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, one AFC executive said that there have been "at least two offers" sent to the Cardinals for Rosen, but the Cardinals are not going to just give Rosen away.
The details of those offers are unknown but the Giants, who have two first-round picks (No. 6 and 17), could be willing to part with their second-round pick for Rosen while addressing other concerns with their two first-round picks.
At the very least, they have one person who played with Rosen who appears willing to vouch for his work ethic.
