Rosen has been speculated as a potential trade chip this offseason as he has seemingly become a nonfactor in Miami’s plans going forward. Per Salguero, the Dolphins have given all indications that they intend to select the player they view as their next franchise quarterback in the draft this year.
Salguero adds it’s unlikely Rosen beats out QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job given the veteran is already intimately familiar with new OC Chan Gailey‘s offense and Rosen will be learning it from scratch.
However, Salguero says it’s likely Rosen remains with the Dolphins unless another team blows them away with a trade offer, which is unlikely given the former top-ten pick has yet to establish his footing in the NFL.
Rosen, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Cardinals back in 2018. Arizona traded him to the Dolphins for a second-round pick after just a year during the 2019 NFL Draft.
Rosen is entering the third year of his four-year, $17,664,284 contract and stands to make base salaries of $660,000 and $750,000 over the next two years of the agreement. The contract includes a fifth-year option for the Dolphins to pick up in 2021.
In 2019, Rosen appeared in six games for the Dolphins and completed 53.2 percent of his passes for 567 yards, one touchdown and five interceptions.
