The Miami Dolphins are expecting a newly motivated Josh Rosen when he arrives to the team facilities, but he won't find the starting quarterback job handed to him on a platter.
Dolphins coach Brian Flores made it clear that Rosen, whom Miami acquired from the Arizona Cardinals on Friday night for a late-second-round pick and a 2020 fifth-round pick, won't be treated any differently than the rest of the players on the team.
"When Josh gets here, he's got to compete for any type of role that he has here. That's the case for everyone in the building," Flores said. "The guys who produce on the practice field and do all the things that help this team win -- those are the guys who will play."
Miami got great value in the trade for Rosen, who was the 10th pick in the 2018 draft, but he has a lot of work to do after posting the NFL's lowest passer rating (66.7) last season.
It's a fresh start for Rosen after the Cardinals drafted his replacement, Kyler Murray, first overall Thursday.
