(WAXY) - Zack Duarte - 2019 is the year of the Rosen.

The Miami Dolphins acquired Josh Rosen last week signaling that they’re not waving the white flag (completely) on the 2019 season. 

The dialogue hasn’t died down on whether or not Chris Grier made a mistake acquiring the former Arizona Cardinal quarterback but one thing is for sure: Miami Dolphins fans should be rooting for Rosen to succeed in his sophomore season in the NFL. 

Let’s say that the Dolphins go 3-13 and Rosen has a similar season to the one statistically he had in 2018. Then the Dolphins will surely use a top pick in next year’s draft to acquire a quarterback and the process of developing and building around that player begins again. Not to say that that is a bad option to take. But what if Rosen puts up solid numbers on a bad team in 2019?

The Dolphins would then be in a position to build around Rosen, knowing that they’ve possibly found their first legitimate replacement for Dan Marino, who was at the helm back in the 1990’s. 

This would then allow Miami to use their draft picks, of which they have three picks in the top 64 next year and five picks in the top 100, to build around Rosen. The Dolphins are also slated to have upwards of $100 million in cap space to sign impact players. 

Rosen would be under team control for 3 more years after 2019, should Miami pick up his fifth-year option on his rookie deal. 

This would put Miami in a situation similar to Seattle when they struck gold on Russell Wilson in the draft or the Eagles with Carson Wentz and the Rams with Jared Goff. 

Fans may be split on if they like Josh Rosen and if they believe he can be the quarterback of the future. But everyone should be hoping that the trade works for the best and that Miami is set at the quarterback position for the next decade.
