He played 14 games for the franchise before he was traded to the Miami Dolphins for a second-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Rosen appeared in six games for the Dolphins before he was cut.
He spent time on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad before he was signed by the San Francisco 49ers.
Rosen is still a member of the 49ers, but after the team selected Trey Lance third overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, it seems unlikely he will ever see regular season playing time with the team.
While he never truly got an opportunity in the NFL, Rosen had plenty of potential coming into it.
In his three years at UCLA, Rosen completed 60.9 percent of his passes for 9,340 yards and a 59/26 TD/INT ratio.

At just 23 years old, Rosen has plenty of time to become regain his spot as a starting quarterback in the NFL.
When it comes to where, these three teams might give him the best opportunity.

3. Indianapolis Colts
As of this writing, the Indianapolis Colts might be the most quarterback-needy team in the NFL.
Currently, the Colts have Jacob Eason, Brett Hundley, and Sam Ehlinger as quarterbacks on their roster.
Eason is the favorite to take on the starting role after being selected in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft.
He has yet to attempt a pass in the NFL, but threw for 5,590 yards and a 39/16 TD/INT in his three years in college between Georgia and Washington.
Hundley has been in the NFL for the past four seasons, spending time with the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Cardinals.
In his career he has appeared in 18 games and started nine, completing 59.1 percent of his passes for 1,902 yards and a 9/13 TD/INT ratio.
Ehlinger was a sixth-round pick by the Colts in the 2021 NFL Draft.
He threw for 11,436 yards, 94 touchdowns, and 27 interceptions in his four years at Texas.
Wentz’s injury won’t sideline him for the whole season, but if none of the quarterbacks currently on the roster pan out, it wouldn’t hurt to see if Rosen can fill in until he is back.
2. Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan is locked in as the Atlanta Falcons starting quarterback.
He is under contract until 2023 and while there were some talks of a potential trade, it looks like Ryan will be the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future.
So where does Rosen fit in?
That question is answered by looking at the team’s current backup quarterbacks.
That list includes A.J. McCarron and Feleipe Franks.
McCarron is a former fifth-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals who has appeared in 17 NFL games.
He has attempted 174 passes and completed 109 of them for 1,173 yards and a 6/3 TD/INT ratio.
Franks was an undrafted free agent following the 2021 NFL Draft.
He spent three years at Florida and one year at Arkansas in college, completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 6,610 yards and a 55/21 TD/INT ratio.
While both players shined in college, McCaron has struggled in the NFL while Franks’ path to league will be tough as an UDFA.
With Rosen, the Falcons would have a quarterback with a strong draft pedigree who they can potentially mold as Ryan’s successor down the line.
1. Pittsburgh Steelers
It appears as if Ben Roethlisberger‘s time in the NFL is coming to an end.
According to Dale Lolley of DK Pittsburgh Sports, Roethlisberger is planning on retiring after the 2021 season.
Rudolph started eight games for Pittsburgh in 2019 after a season-ending elbow injury to Roethlisberger.
During his time with the Steelers, he has completed 201 passes for 2,089 yards and a 15/10 TD/INT ratio.
Haskins is a former first-round pick who was signed by Pittsburgh after he was released by the Washington Football Team.
He has appeared in 16 games in the NFL and has started 13 of them, completing 60.1 percent of his passes for 2,804 yards and a 12/14 TD/INT ratio.
Dobbs was a fourth-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft by Pittsburgh
While he spent a year with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019, he has been back with the Steelers since 2020.
Throughout his NFL career, Dobbs has attempted just 17 passes for 45 yards and an interception.
For the Steelers, adding Rosen would add another young arm with potential to their quarterback room.
If they plan on going in-house to replace Roethlisberger, Rosen would be able to battle against other young signal-callers for the opportunity to replace the two-time Super Bowl champion.
