The Miami Dolphins are officially done with Josh Rosen.
As some had expected, the team issued a statement Saturday saying they had released the former first-round quarterback.
Of course, Miami’s biggest “play” this year has arguably been grabbing Tua Tagovailoa from Alabama in this year’s draft.
“Josh, he worked hard, he competed, he did everything we asked, but at the end of the day, we just felt like moving on was the best thing for the Miami Dolphins,” head coach Brian Flores explained to reporters over the weekend, according to our news partner, WPTV NewsChannel 5.

The 23-year-old Rosen had been the Cardinals’ 10th pick during the 2018 draft.
They let him go after they got Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray last year.
Meanwhile, the ‘Fins snapped him up in return for second- and fifth-round picks.
What this all means is that the starting job for the opener against the Patriots next Sunday will go to either Ryan Fitzpatrick or Tagovailoa.
