It may seem like Miami Dolphins quarterback Josh Rosen is the odd man out once again.

With Ryan Fitzpatrick expected to be the Dolphins starter and rookie Tua Tagovailoa waiting in the wings, Rosen finds himself in a bit of an odd situation as training camp gets underway.

Rosen, the 10th pick in the 2018 draft, was brought to Miami in the 2019 offseason to compete with Fitzpatrick. A 5-11 finish helped the Dolphins land Tagovailoa in April's draft.

Now, it appears that Rosen is an overlooked outcast, biding his time before an opportunity presents itself -- either in Miami or elsewhere.

Until then, Rosen is working with Fitzpatrick and Tagovailoa with hopes his performance in practice could offer some further clarity on his standing with the team.

"The vision for Josh is the same vision for every player," Dolphins coach Brian Flores said Monday.


"Come in. It's a new offense. New teammates. Learn the playbook. Get to know you're teammates. Work hard in practice. Try to improve every day. Take advantage of your opportunities. Take advantage of your reps. Let your play on the field, what you do on the field will at the end of the day, you'll earn your reps on the field based on how you play in practice.

"So, that hasn't changed for Josh or anyone else on the roster."

Flores declined to address whether Rosen's representatives have reached out to the Dolphins regarding his standing or a potential trade.

Earlier this offseason, other teams inquired about Rosen's availability, but the Dolphins were "in no hurry to trade him," according to a report by NFL Network in May.
