Miami selected Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, and the 22-year old has shown signs that he has recovered from the hip injury that sidelined him for his final season for the Crimson Tide.
Miami acquired the former UCLA signal-caller from the Arizona Cardinals, the team that selected him 10th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.
The Cardinals dealt Rosen to the Dolphins for a 2019 second-round pick and a 2020 fifth-round pick. This was done to make way for quarterback Kyler Murray, whom they selected with the first overall pick in last year’s class, later winning Offensive Rookie of the Year. There is still no word on the return that Miami is asking to acquire the services of Rosen.
In his first season for the Dolphins, Rosen started three games, while appearing in 13 games for Arizona as a rookie. In his two years in the league, he has made 275 out of 502 attempted passes for 2,845 yards, including 12 touchdowns while also tossing 19 interceptions.
