Quarterback Josh Rosen has been given a second chance to compete for a starting position after a tumultuous season in Arizona.
The Jewish Quarterback was traded at last week’s NFL draft to the Miami Dolphins from the Arizona Cardinals to the Miami Dolphins in exchange for Miami’s second-round pick (62nd overall), and a 2020 fifth-round pick
The Cardinals who drafted Rosen 10th overall last year, traded Rosen after they picked Kyler Murray on Thursday night as the No. 1 overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft.
With the Cardinals, Rosen played in 14 games with 13 starts, completing 217 of 393 passes for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns against 14 interceptions. He was sacked 45 times and posted a 66.7 passer rating.
The Arizona Cardinals 2018 record was 3-13 while Miami’s was 7-19.
With the Miami Dolphins Rosen will be competing for the starting quarterback position against Ryan Fitzpatrick who played last year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fitzpatrick made history last year by being the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for 400 or more yards in three consecutive games.
The Dolphins are part of the AFC East Division where two teams also have QB’s taken from the same year Rosen was drafted. Sam Darnold who plays with the NY Jets was picked 3rd overall and Josh Allen who plays for the Buffalo Bills was picked 7th overall.
