The Miami Dolphins may have traded a second-round draft pick to the Arizona Cardinals for quarterback Josh Rosen last month, and they may see Rosen as the quarterback of the future, but that does not mean they are just going to hand him the starting job going into 2019.

As a matter of fact, Rosen may be starting behind the 8-ball, as the Dolphins seem to be giving long-time veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick the first crack at the opening day job under center, according to Adam Beasley of The Miami Herald.

Beasley state that Fitzpatrick took the first snap in 7-on-7 drills during Tuesday morning’s practice at organized team activities.

Of course, this could be Miami’s way of keeping Rosen on his toes and making him work harder to improve. Plus, while Fitzpatrick is no Tom Brady, he is certainly capable of at least being a passable starter, as he is coming off of a 2018 campaign with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in which he made seven starts (playing in eight games overall) and threw for 2,366 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions while completing 66.7 percent of his passes and registering a passer rating of 100.4.

Rosen, who played his collegiate football at UCLA, was originally selected by the Cardinals with the 10th overall pick of the 2018 NFL Draft. He went on to make 12 starts during his rookie season, throwing for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 14 picks while completing just 55.2 percent of his throws and posting a passer rating of 66.7.

Arizona then opted to take Oklahoma signal-caller Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick this year, signaling Rosen’s exit.
