Report: Browns Are Signing QB Josh Rosen Ahead Of Training Camp

The Cleveland Browns are adding yet another quarterback to their roster ahead of a possible forthcoming suspension being handed down by the NFL to starter Deshaun Watson.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Thursday, the Browns are signing quarterback Josh Rosen to a one-year deal following him trying out for the team on Wednesday. The speculation is that Rosen might wind up being the Browns backup quarterback behind Jacoby Brissett should Watson indeed incur a suspension as part of the NFL’s personal conduct policy.

Rosen was originally selected by the Arizona Cardinals 10th overall in 2018 NFL Draft out of UCLA. He was then traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2019. The Dolphins cut Rosen after the 2019 season and the quarterback went on to spend the next two seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons.

For his NFL career, Rosen is 277-of-513 passing for 2,864 yards with 12 touchdowns and 21 interceptions. He is 3-13 as a starter to date. His last start came with Dolphins in Week 6 of the 2019 season and he has played all of 29 offensive snaps since that start.

Rosen joins a Browns quarterback depth chart that includes Brissett and Joshua Dobbs after the team traded away quarterback Baker Mayfield to the Carolina Panthers a few weeks ago. The addition of Rosen is likely a sign that the Browns expect Watson to be suspended for multiple games.

The Browns start their 2022 training camp next week. They open their 2022 regular season on the road against the Panthers on September 11.
