Josh Rosen’s lengthy, gradual fall has not dipped him out of the NFL, however he’s off a 53-man roster.
The 2018 first-round decide was launched Tuesday, when the Browns trimmed their roster, and cleared waivers. The Browns stored him round Thursday, once they added the previous UCLA star to their apply squad.
Rosen misplaced a coaching camp competitors with Joshua Dobbs to be the backup for Jacoby Brissett till Deshaun Watson returns from his 11-game suspension.

He spent most of 2020 on the Bucs’ apply squad earlier than the 49ers signed him as a backup, although he by no means appeared in a sport. He spent final season with the Falcons, the place he threw 11 passes in rubbish time throughout 4 video games.
And now he’s primarily the fifth quarterback in Cleveland.
“Josh gave us some good reps,” Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski advised reporters Thursday, through the Related Press. “There have been some actually good moments in these video games and a few actually good moments out right here on the [practice] subject. He’s nonetheless studying. This was new to him a couple of weeks again.
