Brian Flores: No decisions have been made on Josh Rosen

The prospect of trading quarterback Josh Rosen came up during Dolphins head coach Brian Flores’ videoconference on Friday and Flores didn’t deny that it has been a topic of conversation.

A Thursday report indicated the team has been fielding trade inquiries for the 2018 first-round pick and Flores confirmed that General Manager Chris Grier has taken such calls. He added that Grier has been in discussions regarding other players as well and that the team hasn’t made any final calls about any of them.

“No decisions have been made,” Flores said, via the Miami Herald. “We’re going to go out and practice today and make decisions on the roster tomorrow. We’re fielding calls on a handful of players, and I think every team is doing the same thing. Josh has competed. Josh has made some great throws. I think he’s gotten better over the course of training camp. That’s where we are with him.”

With Ryan Fitzpatrick and Tua Tagovailoa on the roster, the Dolphins may not have any on-field use for Rosen this season. Playing amid the COVID-19 pandemic has led to thoughts of keeping a quarterback quarantined in case of emergency, however, and the Dolphins can fit everyone under the cap without issue, so there’s no reason to rush to move him for less than their ideal compensation.

  1. Fins don’t need Rosen on the team anymore.
    If Fitz and Tua get hurt, Miami’s season is over anyways, so they might as well go cheaper on the third-stringer.

  2. What is the problem with Rosen – a former high 1st round draft pick? Is he just not any good, a poor leader, or a locker room cancer? He played his 1st year and wasn’t great (as with most rookie QBs) and wasn’t terrible. So how have 2 teams decided that Rosen is not their future?

  3. For real? Nathan Peterman in his restructured contract gets one mill from the Raiders, and Rosen might not even make the Dolphins Team?


  4. What I’ve been reading about Rosen the past two seasons is that he has a live arm, but he’s not decisive with his decision making has been bery inconsistent. His passes sometimes aren’t coming out quick enough and it disrupts the timing of plays. It could be confidence and uncertainty of what he’s seeing, who knows. He’s still very young and could develop with a good quarterback coach, but right now, he’s looking like a career backup. The Dolphins obviously already have put all their eggs in Tua’s basket.

  5. If you are a 1st round pick as a QB and are cut after 2 years you are worse than Paxton Lynch.
    Thats atrocious.
