Former Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen is employed again.
Rosen, who was recently released by Miami, has a job again, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed the beleaguered 23-year-old quarterback to the practice squad.
It is hard to find a word for Rosen’s journey in the NFL. Since being drafted tenth overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft, Rosen was traded to the Miami Dolphins, but was a backup to veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick and then the Dolphins drafted Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Rosen’s time was limited.
In 20 games, Rosen has thrown for 2845 yards, 12 touchdowns and 19 interceptions. He will now try to find a spot with the Bucs’ practice squad in 2020.

- After three years with the Baltimore Ravens, Brandon Carr is returning to the Dallas Cowboys on their practice squad. Carr commanded the left cornerback spot from 2012-2016 in Dallas where he had seven interceptions and averaged 45-50 tackles per year. The 34-year-old cornerback had six interceptions and over 40 tackles per game in Baltimore. While he starts on the practice squad for the start of the 2020 season, but Carr will have to work his way back onto the 53-man roster. He has the statistics in the past to prove their is still enough gas left in the tank.
- According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles have made 41-year-old quarterback Josh McCown their “in case of emergency, break glass” quarterback, stashing him on their practice squad. McCown will make $12,000 a week and will be used only as a COVID-19 instance or injuries riddle the quarterback position. The best part of this signing for McCown is he gets to stay at home in Texas, attend virtual meetings and keep himself in shape. The last time, McCown played was in the NFC Wild Card game in 2019 after Carson Wentz left with a concussion.
