The Miami Dolphins have one of the most interesting — and crowded — quarterback rooms in the NFL, and it simply does not make sense to have two young signal-callers on the team’s roster.
Most teams that are rebuilding elect to go with a proven, veteran quarterback, and a young “project” to develop, with a third-stringer in the mix. The Dolphins, however, used the fifth overall pick in the draft to select Tua Tagovailoa, and they’ve made it clear he’ll be their franchise quarterback going forward. 38-year-old Ryan Fitzpatrick is an excellent choice to back him up, and possibly even start in Week 1 if the team feels the Alabama product isn’t ready.
But what should the Dolphins do with Josh Rosen?
The 23-year-old signal-caller was a top-10 pick in the 2018 draft, and while he’s yet to really make major strides in his development, the right coaching staff and system could see him be a middle-of-the-pack starter. It’s simply too early to quit on him. But there just simply aren’t enough reps to go around in Miami, and with the organization committing to Tagovailoa, it makes sense to trade Rosen. And it appears that may be exactly what they do going forward, as the team has reportedly been listening to offers for Rosen.
We’d love to see Rosen get an opportunity to play elsewhere, behind an offensive line and with some talent around him — neither of which he had the benefit of in Arizona or Miami.
