QB - TB
Week 13 Outlook
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are signing former Miami Dolphins QB Josh Rosen to their practice squad.
The former first-round pick now gets a chance to learn from the greatest of all time, Tom Brady. Hopefully a mentoring relationship is what Rosen needs to reignite his career as a legitimate quarterback in the NFL.
The Dolphins released former first-round QB Josh Rosen, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
"The Dolphins tried trading Josh Rosen this past week and could not find a taker," said Adam Schefter of ESPN. The former first-round pick threw 567 yards and owned a 1:5 TD:INT ratio across six games for the Dolphins in 2019. Rosen will look to latch onto his third team in just his third season.
The Miami Dolphins have fielded trade inquiries for quarterback Josh Rosen in recent days, according to a report from NFL insider Adam Schefter. The Arizona Cardinals drafted Rosen with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft but traded him to the Dolphins after selecting Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
With Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to start the season as the starter in Miami and Tua Tagovailoa waiting in the wings as the potential long-term answer at the position, Rosen could once again be on the move. He is unlikely to land as a starter anywhere, but it is nonetheless interesting to hear that there is still interest in Rosen around the NFL. In 2019, he played in six games, completing 58 of 109 passes for 567 yards, one touchdown, and five interceptions.
The Dolphins have reportedly received calls from other teams about QB Josh Rosen.
The Dolphins are in “no hurry” to trade Rosen, per Mike Giardi of the NFL Network. It was reported that Miami hasn’t given up on Rosen’s development and the team believes there’s a chance the 23-year-old QB could succeed in the NFL. Rosen struggled mightily in 2019, throwing for 567 yards and a 1:5 TD:INT ratio across six games. He expects to be third on the QB depth chart behind Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tua Tagovailoa. Rosen is merely a dart throw in dynasty league formats.
Josh Rosen is expected to return to the Dolphins in 2020 rather than being traded over the offseason.
Given the struggles that Rosen continued to display in 2019, there is little indication that another team would be willing to give up enough for Miami to consider trading the former first-round pick. The Dolphins are also expected to spend a 2020 first-rounder on a quarterback, making Rosen once again a reserve player on a rebuilding team.
