The Miami Dolphins got their quarterback of the future in the Josh Rosen trade! Well, maybe not. Dolphins general manager, Chris Grier is happy with the Josh Rosen trade. No question about it. However, Grier let us know that just because they traded for Rosen, doesn’t mean that they won’t take another one in next year’s draft. The hope is that Rosen becomes the guy but Grier is thinking ahead in case that Rosen doesn’t live up to expectations.

General Manager Chris Grier spoke with Albert Breer of SI:

“Every team in the league is looking for that guy that’s going to lead them to championships,” Grier said, via Albert Breer of “And so for us, we’re in a position where we’re trying to find that guy, like a lot of teams in the league. So yeah, it was an easy decision. And it doesn’t stop us from doing anything in the future. Who knows? If things go well and we feel he’s the guy, who knows? But it doesn’t stop us from doing anything.”

That’s code for, we’re still in the Tua Tagovailoa quarterback market. Maybe it’s Jake Herbert or Jake Fromm. Whatever. At the end of the day, the price tag for Rosen was too good to pass on. They essentially got Rosen for free. Miami traded down from 42 to 64 in the draft and collected a 2020 2nd rounder from New Orleans. They then sent 64 to Arizona for Rosen. I would make that trade too. It’s a good business decision.

Miami has a hell of a quarterback battle on their hands. Will they really ride with Ryan Fitzpatrick all year? Will Fitzpatrick even start the season? It’s fascinating. 3 quarterbacks from the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft are in the AFC East (Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, and Josh Rosen). All three teams are still trying to dethrone the Pats.
