The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made the very intelligent decision to sign quarterback Josh Rosen to their practice squad. Here’s why it works.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been unable to stay out of the headlines for several months now. Players like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski made waves with their addition, but Josh Rosen is another high-profile player that the Bucs have added.
Rosen has been one of the most unlucky players in the NFL during his time in the league. After going 10th overall in the 2018 NFL Draft, Rosen has bounced around the NFL and now finds himself fighting for another shot, but very little of this is his fault.
Buccaneers fans are no strangers to heated debates on quarterbacks, their shortcomings, and where the real fault lies. The arguments surrounding Jameis Winston are some of the most-heated discussions on social media between the fanbase. Still, it is clear that quarterbacks can only succeed to a certain degree if they are placed in a bad situation.
There are no arguments that exist that Rosen has played in any good situations during his short professional career (two first year, defensive-minded head coaches, with one team actively tanking), and the belief is that he could turn his career around with a better franchise.
Tampa Bay has only been viewed in a good light for a short time now, but here are three reasons why Rosen and the Bucs are a perfect fit.
