This is your Barker's Chris Muller.
When the Miami Dolphins cut loose quarterback Josh Rosen, it appeared that the 23 year olds NFL career was at a crossroads.
Barely two years after the Arizona Cardinals made him the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, the fact that no team claimed him on waivers seemed to further drive home the point that his stock had fallen precipitously with talent evaluators, coordinators and head coaches around the league.
That said, in signing with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad, Rosen may have found the perfect situation to help resurrect his career.
There are three reasons why, of course, in here they are.
First, Rosen gets to work with Tom Brady, the greatest of all time, the best to ever do it in a guy who worked himself and willed himself from 1/6 round pick to the top of the NFL Mountain.
Brady did what he did because he was willing to put in the work, study the film, but also because he had an unrelenting self belief.
All of those qualities could rub off on Rosen, who really hasn't been believed in since the moment he entered the league and has been in one bad situation after another.
Second reason Rosen could succeed with the Buccaneers is that he has Byron Leftwich around left, which the offensive coordinator in Tampa Bay was also the interim play caller for the Arizona Cardinals in Rosen's rookie season.
So we should have a pretty good idea of the players strengths and weaknesses.
And because Rosen won't be counted on to do anything of significance anytime soon for the Bucks, he has a little bit of time to work with him on the side in a low pressure environment.
The final reason that Rose in my well succeed in Tampa Bay's Bruce Arians, noted quarterback, guru and a guy who both demands a lot out of his quarterbacks.
But Taylor schemes to fit their strengths.
Rosen is a very good athlete.
He is strong in the pocket.
He had to be because he was under siege in Arizona and he throws a very good ball.
The natural talent is there.
He just needs a system, a coach on organization to believe in him.
And while Arians is demanding he, like Rosen, is also a free spirit, at times the two could mesh very well, and Arians doesn't have to get anything out of this quarterback for at least a year to probably longer.
It could all combine to be the perfect situation to finally have Josh Rose and set up for success in the NFL multiple years after he went 10th overall and then had a comedy of errors.
Befall him along the way, and teams simply not want him despite trading for him or using a high draft pick on him.
So there you have it.
Three reasons why Josh Rosen to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad could be a great move not only for him but for the team in the long term.
