Dolphins coach critical of Josh Rosen’s body language

Josh Rosen Dolphins

Josh Rosen has seemingly been behind Ryan Fitzpatrick on the depth chart all offseason despite the Miami Dolphins giving up two draft picks to acquire him back in April, and it does not sound like that is going to change any time soon.

Fitzpatrick was listed as the starting quarterback ahead of Miami’s first preseason game last week, and he has continued to get first-team reps in practice. When asked for a Rosen update on Tuesday, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores described the former UCLA star’s performance as “OK” and said he needs to improve his body language.

The Dolphins obviously want Rosen to win the starting job, otherwise they would not have given up a second-round and fifth-round pick for him. However, he has clearly struggled at times this offseason, and Flores appears to be taking a tough love approach with him.

Rosen got more playing time than Fitzpatrick in the first preseason game, and he completed 13-of-20 passes for 191 yards with one brutal interception. Flores had some good things to say about him earlier this month, but it sounds like Rosen needs to prove he can be a better leader and show more consistency before he’s going to beat out Fitzpatrick.
