Rags to riches stories are some of the most compelling in the NFL. Young players with very little to their name who give their heart each week to make the roster and then become a contributor are often quick fan favorites, but riches to rags stories may be more common.
Rosen has gone from being a top-3 quarterback in a draft class with several reliable options to being a practice squad player after just two seasons. This is a tough pill to swallow for Rosen, but the Buccaneers jumped at the opportunity.
With four quarterbacks already involved with the franchise, the Bucs were able to bring Rosen in for a low price. With very little money invested in their newest quarterback, there is little harm resulting from giving Rosen an opportunity.
The Buccaneers can bring Rosen in, try him out for a few weeks, and then decide from there. If he can succeed when given options and show improvements, there is a chance that he could end up making the 53-man roster. If Rosen fails to impress, the Bucs could cut him loose for cheap.
