Josh Rosen

Now on the 49ers, Josh Rosen was the 49ers’ third-string quarterback. Now, before we got all antsy about Rosen being a Saint, let’s think about it. Let’s think about where he’s played and the opportunity he’s been given.

Rosen was a top-ten pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. For starters, although his name has been seemingly heard for half a decade, he’s relatively new still to the NFL.

Drafted by the Cardinals and also playing for the Dolphins, Rosen never really got going in Arizona. He was 3-10 with 11 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Since then, Rosen has struggled and hasn’t been given much of a chance to shine.

He had an 0-3 record at Miami. Rosen may still have it in him to be a solid quarterback. Just look at the protection he was given. While his numbers aren’t there to back up his ability in the league, he was sacked 61 times in 20 games played.

Given him the Saints offensive line, and you may be shocked at his ability to captain a team. It’s a long shot, and he’d really have to win the spot in camp if he was released and signed in the Big Easy. That’s really the only way as the Saints likely won’t trade outright for him.
