49ers' Josh Rosen: Pens one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Wednesday.

Rosen will finish out the season with San Francisco, and it's possible the team will even thrust him into a starting role for the season finale to see whether the 2018 first-round pick has something to offer. Given his lack of familiarity with the team's system, Rosen will open as the backup to C.J. Beathard, who will start Saturday's game against the Cardinals with Nick Mullens (elbow) and Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) both unlikely to play again in 2020.

49ers' Josh Rosen: Signs with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers signed Rosen off the Buccaneers' practice squad Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Rosen was cut by the Dolphins in September and landed on the Bucs' practice squad, and he's finally found a new home. The 49ers need depth at quarterback following news that Nick Mullens (elbow) is done for the year and Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) isn't expected to be activated from IR. In turn, Rosen will serve as C.J. Beathard's backup in Saturday's game versus the Cardinals, who selected him 10th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Josh Rosen: Lands on Tampa Bay's practice squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen signed with the Buccaneers' practice squad Sunday, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

After going unclaimed on waivers, Rosen apparently could've signed with an active roster elsewhere, but he chose to restart his career in a good situation in Tampa Bay. With head coach Bruce Arians and legendary QB Tom Brady, Rosen stands to learn a lot as a practice squad member with the Buccaneers, and he can be patient as he develops before seeking a new team.

Josh Rosen: Goes unclaimed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen wasn't claimed on waivers, thus becoming a free agent, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Rosen is a free agent for the first time since being selected 10th overall by the Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft. Apparently, Rosen's agents actively lobbied teams not to claim him off waivers, providing the 23-year-old an opportunity to choose where he'll get a fresh start. The quarterback has spent the last two seasons with the Cardinals and Dolphins, and although he underperformed, neither of those teams were ideal for his development. Rosen will seek a backup job where he can fine-tune his skills for a potential starting job in the future.

Josh Rosen: Bengals not interested
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bengals will not use their top waiver priority on Rosen, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports. "That's not the direction we're headed right now," coach Zac Taylor said.

This really shouldn't be a surprise -- the Bengals just used the first overall pick of the 2020 draft on Joe Burrow and aren't looking for another project as a potential future starting quarterback. They might, however, look for a third quarterback on the waiver wire just to have some depth.

Josh Rosen: Waived by Dolphins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dolphins waived Rosen on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

This was a bit of a surprise since the Dolphins were apparently fielding trade calls for Rosen, but this was the inevitable conclusion if they couldn't find a proper suitor. Rosen played six games for the Dolphins last season and completed 53 percent of his passes and registered 5.2 yards per attempt. If the 2018 first-round pick isn't claimed on waivers, expect him to find his third franchise in three years after teams cut their rosters to 53 players Saturday.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: On trading block, again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen could be traded within the next week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The Dolphins reportedly have fielded some inquiries, perhaps benefiting from positive updates on Rosen coming out of training camp. It's even been suggested that Rosen could start out ahead of Tua Tagovailoa for the No. 2 quarterback job, but that obviously becomes a moot point if the 2018 first-round pick is traded to his third NFL team in as many years.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Shows improvement
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen has been "arguably the most consistent of all of three quarterbacks" in the early days of Dolphins training camp, according to ESPN's Cameron Wolfe.

Tua Tagovailoa is the future in Miami, while Ryan Fitzpatrick is the likely Week 1 starter. Rosen is left in an odd position, without the benefit of preseason games to potentially drum up trade interest. He reportedly looks better in practice than he did at the same time last year, but his struggles during the 2019 season figure to be the larger factor for any team that's in the market for a backup quarterback.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: No update on potential trade/cut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores didn't say if Rosen has requested a trade or release, merely saying that the young quarterback can earn reps based on his practice performance, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

The comment about earning reps feels like empty coach-speak, considering the Dolphins have Ryan Fitzpatrick and rookie first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa in their QB room. Common sense suggests Rosen is the odd man out, or at least No. 3 in the pecking order for practice snaps. His rookie contract is fully guaranteed, so the Dolphins won't gain anything but a roster spot if they release him.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Could have future in Miami?
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

GM Chris Grier said the Dolphins haven't given up on Rosen's development, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Grier makes a reasonable point about Rosen being held back by coaching changes, including three different offensive coordinators at UCLA and three more through two seasons in the NFL. Even so, teams expect to see a basic level of competence from their players, and Rosen failed to deliver that for both the 2018 Cardinals and 2019 Dolphins. Grier may believe there's still hope for Rosen to succeed in the NFL, but that probably won't stop the GM from using an early draft pick on another quarterback. With Ryan Fitzpatrick under contract through 2020, the Dolphins should at least have some level of discussion about moving on from Rosen.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Not being considered for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Thursday that he isn't considering playing Rosen during Sunday's season finale against the Patriots, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Flores shot down the concept of giving Ryan Fitzpatrick the start and then handing the reins over to Rosen, saying he intends to "stick to what we've been doing," per Cameron Wolfe of A decision to have Fitzpatrick finish the season under center wouldn't come as much of a surprise, considering the veteran's recent quality of play, though it would mean Rosen won't get another shot to prove himself in game action during the 2019 campaign. With Fitzpatrick and Rosen both still under contract for the 2020 season, and the Dolphins a strong candidate to address the quarterback position in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft, Rosen's standing in Miami is looking murky heading into the offseason.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Entrenched as No. 2 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores said Monday that Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain the Dolphins' starting quarterback for the "foreseeable future," Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Rosen's position as Miami's backup quarterback looks set in stone for the time being, with Fitzpatrick now having led the team to consecutive victories. Of course, Fitzpatrick is a notoriously streaky signal-caller with a propensity to dazzle for a time before eventually falling back to earth, so it wouldn't come as much of a surprise if Rosen gets another chance under center later this season. It does appear, however, that the 22-year-old's odds of getting another start are now entirely in Fitzpatrick's hands.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Returns to full participation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen (neck) practiced in full Friday, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports.

One week removed from losing the starting job to veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Rosen is tending to a neck injury, which resulted in a limited listing on Thursday's injury report. After a full session Friday, Rosen is ready to resume his role as a backup, for the time being, at least. Fitzpatrick notoriously runs hot and cold, so his next stretch of play in the latter area could encourage coach Brian Flores to turn to Rosen yet again.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Neck injury surfaces
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen was limited in Thursday's practice due to a neck injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Rosen didn't take the field Week 7 versus Buffalo, so his neck issue appears to have been sustained during practice. The second-year pro is set to work as the backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick against the Steelers on Monday, assuming full health. It's encouraging that Rosen wasn't held out of Thursday's practice entirely, but if he were forced to miss any time Jake Rudock would be a candidate to be called up from the practice squad.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Loses starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan Fitzpatrick will replace Rosen as the Dolphins' starting quarterback for Sunday's game in Buffalo, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

When he spoke to the media after the 17-16 loss to Washington over the weekend, coach Brian Flores said Rosen would retain the starting job. Flores apparently changed his mind at some point thereafter, perhaps when he saw the film from the Week 6 loss. In any case, it won't come as any surprise if Rosen gets another chance as the starter later this season.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Benched in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen completed 15 of 25 passes for 85 yards and two interceptions during Sunday's 17-16 loss to Washington. He was benched during the game, but head coach Brian Flores announced after the game that Rosen remains the starter, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

Rosen was knocked around in a battle of winless teams, taking five sacks in abbreviated duty. When he was able to deliver the ball, the results were poor as he tried to force a pair of passes past the defense only to have them intercepted. The sophomore quarterback now has five interceptions to go with just one touchdown on the season and is averaging a measly 5.2 yards per attempt. Though he's penciled in for the start in Week 7, a dangerous Bills defense looms.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Locked in as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brian Flores suggested Wednesday that Rosen will serve as Miami's starting quarterback for the rest of the season, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Flores referred to the QB situation as "settled," noting that Rosen has already improved and will have the opportunity to continue doing so. The second-year signal-caller gets a favorable matchup Week 6, with the Dolphins hosting a Washington team that has given up 8.0 yards per pass attempt (23rd in NFL) and 13 passing touchdowns (32nd).

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Performs admirably against Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen completed 17 of 24 pass attempts for 180 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Chargers.

Facing a difficult matchup, Rosen completed an impressive 71.0 percent of his passes while averaging a respectable 7.5 yards per attempt. He threw a nifty 34-yard touchdown pass to DeVante Parker in the first quarter and took his team into halftime down just seven, only to fade in a second half during which the Dolphins mustered just 37 yards of offense. Rosen showed no signs of the elbow issue that bothered him throughout the week and will have time to rest over the bye before facing the Redskins at home Oct. 13.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen (elbow) practiced in full Thursday.

Rosen is listed with an elbow injury, but he doesn't appear significantly hindered by the issue or in danger of missing any time. The 22-year-old signal-caller is on track to make a second consecutive start under center Week 4, when he'll face off against the Chargers. The Dolphins have scored only one receiving touchdown through three contests, so Rosen will remain off the fantasy radar until such time as Miami's offense manages to achieve some consistency.

Dolphins' Josh Rosen: Nursing elbow injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rosen was a full participant in practice Wednesday but is listed with an elbow injury, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Rosen was evaluated for an injury during Sunday's 31-6 loss to the Cowboys, but he retook the field without missing many snaps and doesn't appear in danger of missing time. The second-year quarterback is preparing for another start under center versus the Chargers in Week 4 and will work to log a more successful day moving Miami's offense. The Dolphins scored only six points -- two field goals -- in Rosen's first start, as he compiled just a 46.2 completion percentage and 5.1 YPA.
