Teams Called About Josh Rosen’s Availability This Offseason, Dolphins In “No Hurry” To Trade Him


Michael Giardi of NFL Media reports that NFL teams called the Dolphins about QB Josh Rosen‘s availability this offseason. However, Giardi says Miami is in “no hurry” to trade Rosen at this point in time.

The Dolphins currently have Ryan Fitzpatrick, first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa, Rosen and Jake Rudock on their roster at quarterback right now. 

Fitzpatrick has said he’s willing to help the young quarterbacks, but plans to start for the Dolphins this season, which would make sense, considering that Tagovailoa is still working his way back from a serious hip injury. 

Rosen has come up as a speculative trade chip for the Dolphins this offseason, but the draft came and went without any substantial buzz about a potential trade involving Rosen. 

The supply of quarterbacks this offseason has led to some notable players like Marcus Mariota, Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston all accepting backup quarterback jobs and others like Cam Newton and Joe Flacco still available as free agents. 

At this in point, it seems more likely that Rosen will remain in Miami for the 2020 season than be traded. 

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.
