When the Dolphins traded a second-round pick to the Cardinals for QB Josh Rosen, the thought was that Rosen would have a year to audition and maybe show Miami enough to invest in as their franchise quarterback. But after a handful of starts earlier in the year, Dolphins HC Brian Flores essentially said Rosen isn’t playing well enough in practice to merit another chance at proving himself right now.
“You can always get more information, but we have what we have [and that’s] practice reps and the game reps he had and his play for [Arizona] a year ago,” Flores said via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “The most important thing is what we see in practice on a weekly basis.”
