Rosen could be on the move again for the second time in his young NFL career as rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has proven healthy so far in training camp.
Rosen has been part of a three-man quarterback competition in Miami all training camp with Ryan Fitzpatrick as the clear front-runner to start Week 1.
Coach Brian Flores hasn’t announced an official decision yet on the starting and backup quarterback yet but the Dolphins have seen enough so far in camp to make them comfortable making Fitzpatrick and Tagovailoa their two quarterbacks active on game day.
So in an upcoming weekend of moves, Rosen could be on the move again. It would be his second time being traded in the last 17 months
All three quarterbacks — Fitzpatrick, Tagovailoa and Rosen — were participating in the Dolphins’ practice Thursday.
Rosen, a 2018 top-10 pick by the Arizona Cardinals was traded to a Miami during a April 2019 draft weekend for a 2019 second-round pick and 2020 fifth-round pick.
That move hasn’t worked out so far for Miami, and there isn’t a clear path for Rosen to become a starter again with the Dolphins. He started three games for the Dolphins last season before being benched for Fitzpatrick for the rest of the year.
Rosen has spent the last year working hard and focusing on improving and learning from Fitzpatrick rather than winning the starting job.
“I was drafted in the first round, and I think people around the league still think I can play to a certain extent. Whenever that opportunity comes, wherever it comes, I just want to be prepared for it,” Rosen said. “Because they’re few and far between. I didn’t do great with the two I already had. Not many people get third chances. I’m definitely going to seize the opportunity when it comes.”
The question over the weekend is what value can the Dolphins salvage in a trade for Rosen, who can definitely be had for the right price.
