The Dolphins Should Trade This Player While They Still Can
Through a ton of draft picks, the Miami Dolphins are hoping to speed up the rebuilding process and compete in the AFC East sooner rather than later. Making a number of well-designed trades, the team was able to gain a great deal of draft capital. While they look to have had a strong draft class this season, they rebuilding process is far from over.
With that in mind, the Dolphins should look to acquire more draft picks in exchange for quarterback Josh Rosen.
After being selected 10th overall in 2018, Rosen has only been labeled a bust. He struggled in his lone season with the Arizona Cardinals, completing only 55.2 percent of his passes and throwing more interceptions than touchdowns. Last season, he appeared in six games for the Dolphins with similar results, throwing 5 interceptions and 1 touchdown while completing 53.2 percent of his passes.
These were two terrible teams that Rosen has been a part of, with two new head coaches. While Rosen definitely struggled, the situation around him did not prepare him to play well. Because of this, it would make sense for another team to be interested in a first-round quarterback, hoping to take a low-risk gamble that he may still show some of the potential that made him a top-10 pick.
The Dolphins no longer have a need for Rosen, after drafting Tua Tagovailoa. So, unfortunately, this should mean the quarterback will see his third team in as many NFL season, which is incredibly uncommon for a top-10 pick.
It seems to be a win-win scenario here. Another team will get a quarterback with high potential, while the Dolphins will get another draft pick for the future and clear out their quarterback room a bit.
