Josh Rosen was taken No. 10 overall by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft, but he failed to live up to his billing as a potential franchise quarterback. In 13 games with Rosen as the starter, the Cardinals went 3-10 and 13-3 overall last season. So when the Cardinals were presented to draft another potential franchise quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, they immediately pounced on the opportunity and selected signal-caller Kyler Murray. After that, the Cardinals shipped Rosen to the Miami Dolphins for a 2019 second-round selection and a 2020 fifth-round pick.

With the Dolphins, Rosen is now grouped in the AFC East with two other quarterbacks who were taken in the top 10 of the 2018 NFL Draft. The New York Jets took Sam Darnold third overall while the Buffalo Bills selected Josh Allen as the seventh overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. The three will be up against veteran quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots, who have dominated the division by winning 15 of the last 16 AFC East titles. Earlier, it was reported that the Patriots were interested in trading for Rosen as a possible successor for Tom Brady, who expressed interest in playing until he’s 45 years old.

Rosen a fan of Brady’s smooth style

The Dolphins currently have Ryan Fitzpatrick as a presumptive starter, but Rosen is preparing for any eventuality that he might take over as starter at some point in the 2019 season.

For that to happen, Rosen said he’s been trying to emulate Brady’s in running the Dolphins’ offense. “You see Tom at the line of scrimmage — Brady — and he’s orchestrating traffic,” Rosen said of Brady’s style. According to Rosen, Brady has been doing everything super fluidly in running the Patriots’ offense for many years.

The second-year quarterback hopes to get close to Brady’s fluidity when he eventually takes over the Dolphins’ offense. “This offense puts a lot on the quarterback, and I enjoy that,” said Rosen, who will have a chance to learn part of the Patriots’ offense because Dolphins offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea worked as New England wide receivers coach from 2009 to 2018.

In his first year, Rosen completed 217 of 393 passes for 2,278 yards and 11 touchdowns with 14 interceptions.

AFC East rivals don’t stand a chance vs Patriots

Earlier, several retired quarterbacks who are working as football analysts for different networks expect the Patriots to dominate their AFC East rivals – the Bills, Dolphins, and Jets. Despite his age, the 41-year-old Brady will dominate his younger rivals Darnold, Rosen and Allen, former NFL quarterbacks Boomer Esiason, Phil Simms, Dan Orlovsky, and Matt Hasselback. Recently, Brady posted several photos of him while training on the beach as he readies himself for a possible run at a seventh Super Bowl ring.
