Report: Members Within Miami Dolphins Organization Question Josh Rosen’s Commitment to Football

Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen has had a rough start to his NFL career.

The Arizona Cardinals selected Rosen at No. 10 overall in the 2018 NFL Draft. He was named the backup to begin the season, but made his first start in Week 4 of the 2018 season after Sam Bradford got injured.

Rosen started the final 13 games of 2018 for the Cardinals, finishing with 11 touchdowns, 14 interceptions and 2,278 passing yards.

The Cardinals finished the season 3-13, securing the first pick in the draft – and the right to select Rosen’s replacement, Kyler Murray. After drafting Murray, the Cardinals traded Rosen to the Dolphins for two draft picks.

In his first season as a Dolphin, Rosen started three games and threw just one touchdown pass.

Ryan Fitzpatrick was clearly the better quarterback in 2019 for Miami. Then, the Dolphins selected Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, which essentially moved Rosen to third on the Dolphins’ depth chart.

Now, people within the Dolphins organization reportedly are doubting Rosen as he enters his third season, according to the Sun Sentinel.

“In Fitzpatrick, Josh Rosen and Tagovailoa the Dolphins have three players who could end up starting NFL games,” the Sun Sentinel’s Omar Kelly wrote. “Problem is Rosen’s development stalled last season, and people inside the organization have questioned his commitment to football.”

It’s not a good sign if an NFL quarterback isn’t committed to the job.

Rosen hasn’t been dealt the best hand to begin his career, but this could signal a bigger issue.

For Rosen’s sake, he needs to have a strong training camp and preseason to rebuild his value around the league. His future likely isn’t in Miami, but playing well now will help him find a more permanent home.
