Entering his third year in the NFL, former 10th overall pick Josh Rosen has landed on his third team.
According to Mike Garafolo, the former Cardinals draft pick has landed on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad. After going unclaimed, he was free to sign with whatever team he wanted.
Also, being on a practice squad gives Josh Rosen the flexibility to jump if another opportunity presents itself. Being on an active roster would’ve locked him in. All things considered, a good situation for him in Tampa. https://t.co/Y8edPKUQne

Rosen was jettisoned from Arizona following a tumultuous rookie season. Following that year, the Cardinals changed head coaches (hire Kliff Kingsbury) and drafted Kyler Murray first overall in 2019. Rosen joined the Dolphins in 2019 but was once again made expendable by the arrival of a highly-touted rookie in Tua Tagavaiola.
Of course, as a member of the Bucs practice squad, Rosen would be free to sign with another team if he so chooses. However, after a couple of poor situations to begin his career, the idea of learning from a quarterback room led by Tom Brady would likely be appealing to Rosen. Behind Brady are veteran Blaine Gabbert and 30-year-old Ryan Griffin and no long-term solution at the position. Rosen could be just that.
In 16 career starts over two seasons, Rosen is 3-13 and has completed just 55 percent of his passes for 2,845 yards. He’s tossed just 12 touchdowns to 19 interceptions and has a career passer rating of 63.5.
