Similar to the Bengals, the Panthers moved on from their quarterback they took in the 2011 draft, as Cam Newton is waiting to be signed. Carolina surprised some people when they signed Teddy Bridgewater to a three-year dear even when it looked like they’d be rebuilding.

Bridgewater is talented and he proved such when he stepped in for the injured Drew Brees last year and went 5-0. He would be a great option to help mentor Rosen because he’s been in his shoes somewhat. After being a first round pick for the Vikings in 2014, Bridgewater went on to spend time with the Jets and Saints before being given another shot at the quarterback spot.

Rosen makes sense with the Panthers, but with them spending a fourth rounder on Will Grier just a year ago, they could decide to roll with him as the backup instead.

Gardner Minshew is the man in Jacksonville, but how long will that last for? The 2019 sixth round pick took the league by storm as a rookie when he replaced an injured Nick Foles and it led to him getting the green light to be their starter in 2020 and maybe beyond.

That being said, Minshew isn’t a solid long-term solution and is likely going to be a backup for the duration of his NFL career. Their current backup is Josh Dobbs, who they traded for last season, and Dalton or Newton could make sense in Jacksonville as well.

Rosen, however, is a young guy who could maybe pan out in Jacksonville and give them a long-term quarterback if he figures it out. It’s not the most realistic scenario, but could be worth a look for the Jaguars.
