The Miami Dolphins cut Josh Rosen after failing to work out a trade for the young quarterback.
Josh Rosen just can’t catch a break.
The Dolphins cut the former No. 10 overall pick, Adam Schefter reported on Friday night.
That means Rosen will be looking for this third team in three years as the 2020 season fast approaches.
The Dolphins tried to trade Josh Rosen, but ended up cutting him instead.
Over the past week, trade rumors concerning the former UCLA quarterback popped up. Now a third-string option, Miami was looking to unload Rosen ahead of Saturday’s roster cuts. NFL squads have to get their numbers to the 53-man limit.
It would seem they didn’t find any trade partners. The result is an unceremonious cut for a passer who looked so promising coming out of college.
Rosen was one of five quarterbacks picked in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He’s the only one who isn’t with the team who drafted him. He’s now two teams removed.
The Cardinals grabbed Rosen at No. 10, but he didn’t do enough in 12 starts as a rookie to convince them to bet their future on him. Instead, Arizona used a pick on Kyler Murray and sent Rosen packing to the Dolphins, who paid for him with a second- and fifth-round draft pick.
It turns out those picks were wasted. Rosen started just three times for Miami in 2019 and his results left plenty to be desired. He tossed just one touchdown and five interceptions while firmly tailing Ryan Fitzpatrick in the pecking order.
In the 2020 draft, again Rosen was overlooked as the Dolphins drafted Tua Tagovailoa as the future of their franchise. And again Rosen ended up dumped.
Maybe the third time will be the charm. First, Rosen will have to find a new team to join up with in 2020.
