Josh Rosen is officially a member of the Falcons.

The Falcons announced Rosen’s signing on Tuesday along with other moves that bring their roster to 80 players ahead of Tuesday’s 4 p.m. ET deadline to get to that number. Rosen was of interest to the Falcons because backup quarterback AJ McCarron tore his ACL over the weekend.

Rosen was cut by the 49ers earlier this month. The 2018 Cardinals first-round pick has also spent time with the Dolphins and Buccaneers, but has only started three games since his rookie season.

McCarron was placed on injured reserve to open a roster spot for Rosen. They also waived running back Javian Hawkins, linebacker Shareef Miller, defensive lineman Olive Sagapolu, wide receiver Austin Trammell, and offensive lineman Willie Wright.

  1. If nothing else, Rosen makes it interesting…
    Maybe he can become the net Kurt Warner…

  2. Any kind of Kurt Warner comparison doesn’t hold water. Warner went undrafted and was never expected to be a starter or franchise QB. Josh Rosen was a #10 overall pick with a sense of entitlement who said 9 mistakes were made with the picks ahead of him. He was given a chance to start in Arizona. He was given a chance to start in Miami. And to this point he’s never showed anything that would make anyone think he was capable of being a starter, franchise QB, or even a decent backup.
