Dolphins QB Josh Rosen ‘trying to get better’ from preseason mistakes
Josh Rosen’s preseason debut as a member of the Miami Dolphins didn’t get off to a great start last Thursday, when the quarterback threw an early interception, but he bounced back and looked solid afterward, completing 13 of his 20 passes for 191 yards.
Obviously, Rosen still has a long way to go, but there has been some buzz about the second-year signal-caller potentially getting some run with the first-team offense.
In spite of the chatter, Rosen understands he needs to get better:
“The pick was pretty bad in the sense of my read told me to go here and I didn’t. It wasn’t like a ball play kind of pick,” said Rosen, per Kyle Crabbs of Dolphins Wire. “It was a read kind of pick, so it’s definitely something to build on. I think there was some good, some bad and everything in between. I’m looking forward to breaking down the film and trying to get better from it.”
Rosen, who played his collegiate football at UCLA, was originally selected by the Arizona Cardinals with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. He proceeded to make 13 starts under center during his rookie year, but was disappointing, throwing for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while completing 55.2 percent of his passes and posting a passer rating of 66.7.
The Cardinals then decided to take Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick this past April and turned around and traded Rosen to the Dolphins for a third-round draft choice.
Rosen is currently behind Ryan Fitzpatrick on depth chart, but a strong preseason would certainly go a long way in potentially helping him beat out Fitzpatrick for the starting job.
