It is officially a new era in Miami, these aren’t the same old Dolphins throwing as much money as they can at random free agents. For once it looks like there could actually be a plan in place. When the trade first went through, Ill be honest i wasn’t sold on the idea at all. Ive been all in on the idea of going full tank and trying to get Tua next year, or even waiting for Trevor Lawrence out of Clemson.
After days to think about the trade and what we are getting, Ive really come around on the idea of Josh Rosen being a Miami Dolphin. The Dolphins didn’t trade a first round pick for him, they didn’t even trade their 48th overall pick for him. They traded that to the New Orleans Saints and ended up getting a second rounder for next year. In the end the Dolphins gave up the 62nd overall pick and a 5th rounder for next year. This was probably the best offer Arizona was going to get, when everyone knew they wanted rid of him. If your like me and were very skeptical of this pickup by Miami, let me sell you on what I’ve come around on. Arizona paid Rosen his bonus last year and ended up paying him 11 million in total. The Miami Dolphins have Josh Rosen under control for the next 3 years for 6 million. Thats 2 million a year for the next 3 years for a guy who went 10th overall last season.
Who knows how this thing turns out, I for one think FitzMagic will still be at the helm come opening Sunday for these Dolphins. At best we get a first rounder who could very well be a franchise quarterback, at worse we get a backup for three years at a very cost efficient price. Let me remind you that Matt Moore got 4 million per when he was the Dolphins backup quarterback. Im far from all in on Rosen, but this trade was worth the risk and Im very excited about this Dolphins team after the draft. Which is something i haven’t honestly been able to say since the Ryan Tannehill era started years ago. The quarterback room of Fitzmagic and Rosen looks a hell of a lot better than last years Tannehill and the Brocketship. All i know is things are changing in Miami and from what i can tell its definitely for the better. Hope y’all enjoyed the draft, FinsUp.
