Reports: QB Rosen to join Bucs’ practice squad
Quarterback Josh Rosen will be signing a contract to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ practice squad, the NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo and Tom Pelissero reported on Sunday.
Rosen, 23, will be suiting up for his third team in as many years. The former first-round pick went unclaimed on waivers after being released by the Miami Dolphins earlier in the weekend.
Per the report, Rosen elected to join the Buccaneers’ practice squad because it was a better fit given that his salary for the season was already guaranteed.
Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin are on the team’s active roster behind six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady, who signed a two-year contract in the offseason.
It has been a rocky road for Rosen, who was the No. 10 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. He started 13 games during his rookie season in the desert.
Rosen was traded to the Dolphins on draft day in 2019 shortly after the Cardinals selected Kyler Murray with the top overall pick.
Rosen appeared in 14 games for the Cardinals in 2018, passing for 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He started three of his six games with the Dolphins last season, throwing for 567 yards, one TD and five interceptions.
The Dolphins gave up a second-round pick in 2019 and a fifth-round selection in 2020 to obtain Rosen.
