Flores OK if Fitzpatrick wins Dolphins' QB job over Rosen

  • Despite trading for former top-10 pick Josh Rosen during the draft, the Miami Dolphins don’t appear to be handing him the starting quarterback job.
  • Rosen will compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick to start Week 1, and new head coach Brian Flores would have no issue with the 14-year veteran winning the battle in camp.
  • “I think that would be what’s best for the team and best for the Miami Dolphins.”
  • Rosen was shipped to Miami from the Arizona Cardinals for a second-round pick and a 2020 fifth-rounder.
  • Though the young passer has spent little time with his new club, the first-year head coach is impressed with what he’s seen so far.
  • “He’s very bright,” Flores said of Rosen.
  • “Josh, being here for a few weeks, I think he’s done well. But there’s such a long way to go.”
