Josh Rosen will certainly likely not be the starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins when the 2019 NFL period opens up. On Tuesday, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores hinted Rosen just wasn’t ready to play. That can be a significant strike to the UCLA product’s career.
After sending out second- and also fifth-round picks to the Arizona Cardinals to get Rosen, the Dolphins didn’t land the starter they thought they were obtaining. Instead, they landed a back-up that could not vanquish Ryan Fitzpatrick for the work. What does that mean for Rosen’s future? Well, it ain’t good.
Going into the 2018 NFL Draft, Rosen was proclaimed as “the most NFL-ready” of the leading quarterbacks available. The Cardinals got him with the 10th pick in the preliminary as well as thrust him into activity in Week 3. The remainder of the period was an abject catastrophe for Rosen, that looked completely lost at the NFL degree.
While he definitely didn’t have much help from the roster around him, Rosen was a mess as a rookie. He finished simply 55.2 percent of his masquerade 2,278 yards, with 11 touchdowns and also 14 interceptions. He finished dead last leaguewide in both quarterback score (66.7) and Total QBR (24.1 ).
After dealing with Rosen for a few weeks, new Cardinals train Kliff Kingsbury determined the 22-year-old wasn’t mosting likely to cut it. Arizona traded Rosen to the Dolphins and also selected Kyler Murray with the top choice in the 2019 draft. Not exactly a ringing recommendation for a young quarterback.
Currently with the restoring Dolphins, the majority of expected Rosen to climb to the occasion and take a strong grasp of the quarterback job. He hasn’t. Instead Fitzpatrick, a sub-par journeyman that has had his minutes, has actually brushed up in as well as taken the job while Flores states Rosen isn’t prepared. It isn’t all that surprising, because Rosen hasn’t looked all that great in the preseason either.
In 18 months, Rosen has actually gone from “most NFL all set novice quarterback” to “not all set.” That’s a steep loss.
Can Rosen transform it around? Sure he can. However there’s clearly something holding him back. In university he revealed excellent natural capability. He’s obtained excellent size at 6-foot-4 as well as 215 extra pounds, and also he’s clearly a wise kid. However plainly something isn’t right.
Rosen will likely play this season, and likely early in the year. Yet the fact that he could not defeat Fitzpatrick is rather sensational provided what the Dolphins quit to get him.
