Rosen, who threw 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions during his three seasons at UCLA, has a history of not being shy in the media. And while Bradford is unlikely to lead the Cardinals to a Super Bowl, there are worse places for Rosen to be than the Cardinals.

The blast was coming after the one that occurred in a Mosque in November in Mubi a year ago that claimed about 50 lives.

Suspicion for the attack immediately fell on Boko Haram, the jihadist group whose quest to establish a hardline Islamic state in northeast Nigeria has left at least 20,000 dead since 2009.

Mubi has suffered regular attacks by Boko Haram. That area is not far from the Sambisa Forest area where the extremists had a stronghold.

The Nigerian government had said since December 2015 that Boko Haram has been defeated.
