Josh Rosen not guaranteed starting job for remainder of season
The Miami Dolphins aren’t doing much to clear up their quarterback situation, but there will be no changes — for now.
Dolphins coach Brian Flores announced Monday that, despite Ryan Fitzpatrick coming off the bench to rally the team against Washington, Josh Rosen will remain the starter for Week 7 against Buffalo. He added, however, that the situation would remain fluid as the season goes on.
Brian Flores said he feels the Dolphins already have a pretty good evaluation of Josh Rosen based on the amount of time he’s been with the team. He says Rosen is the starter Sunday at Buffalo because of continuity, but that conversation will be ongoing throughout the season.

It’s not exactly a ringing endorsement of Rosen when the best Flores can say of him is “continuity.” He was dreadful on Sunday and Fitzpatrick outperformed him, but with the Dolphins not terribly interested in winning football games right now, continuing their “evaluation” of Rosen may be best for the franchise to achieve its long-term goals.
Rosen admitted that he feels like he’s undertaking a season-long tryout in Miami. It does not sound like he’s nailing it, having thrown five interceptions to one touchdown while reaching the 200-yard mark just once.
