1. Los Angeles Rams
Speaking of a dismal backup situation, the Rams only have former undrafted free agent and AAF signal caller John Wolford behind Jared Goff right now. Not only that, they seem fully prepared to go with Wolford as their No. 2 quarterback this year. A reunion with Blake Bortles may eventually come though, and the idea of them signing Cam Newton at some point can’t be totally dismissed.
Rosen went to college at UCLA and became a top high school prospect in the Los Angeles area. So if a move for a backup quarterback this side of Newton could generate any real buzz, the Rams making a deal to bring Rosen back home would be it.
They are cap-strapped of course, but it wouldn’t take a whole lot of maneuvering to make room for Rosen’s combined cap hits of just over $5 million over the next two years. To say nothing of him being an upgrade behind Goff, despite his dismal on-field resume.
Due in part to his huge contract, Goff isn’t going anywhere as the Rams’ starting quarterback anytime soon (though the financial hits attached to moving on do become more reasonable heading toward 2022). But Rosen would benefit from working alongside an offensive mind like head coach Sean McVay, and as much as he’ll have any say in where he’s traded going back to Los Angeles stands as a possible preference.
