The choice to release Josh Rosen comes as a bit of surprise since there were reports that rookie Tua Tagovailoa had yet to outperform him in training camp. If people haven’t already taken notice, Rosen’s release goes to show that training camp talk should be taken with a grain of salt.
On the other hand, his release could have been expected due to the Dolphins reportedly fielding offers for the former first-round pick. But after finding no suitors for Rosen, they’ve elected to part ways with him before the 2020 campaign.
Not many quarterbacks in NFL history have been dealt a worse hand than Rosen has thus far in his career. Rosen began his NFL stint as the No. 10 pick by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft.
However, his career in Arizona began with a dysfunctional coaching staff under Steve Wilks and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy. Then, just a year after he was drafted, Rosen was traded to Miami so the Cardinals could take Kyler Murray with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
During his short stint with the Dolphins, Rosen never got much of a chance to show his worth either. Even though he has failed to prove why he was a top draft pick, there should be a handful of teams that will express interest in him.
