Josh Rosen has had an interesting NFL career. The UCLA product is only in his third season, but he’s already on his fourth team. That’s an odd statement to make about a former top-10 pick.
Rosen was originally drafted No. 10 overall by the Arizona Cardinals back in 2018. After only one season, he was shipped off the Miami Dolphins. The reason? Arizona drafted Kyler Murray No. 1 overall in the 2019 draft.
Unfortunately for Rosen, Miami took a similar course of action. The front office took Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa No. 5 overall, and eventually released Rosen. Rosen eventually landed on the practice squad for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but the San Francisco 49ers signed him to their active roster on Dec. 23.
Are you still following? Good.
That quite the variety, right? Well, just wait until you hear about Rosen’s Twitter profile. One user discovered a weird combination of factors at play, including his banner, bio and who was participating in today’s game. Check it out.
Josh Rosen’s Twitter banner is him on the Dolphins, his bio says he’s a Buccaneer, he’s suiting up for the Niners today, and facing the Cardinals who drafted him tenth overall just 2.5 years ago pic.twitter.com/7P9F1FjBp5

Imagine trying to move four times in less than three years, especially when it’s from …
- Los Angeles to Arizona
- Arizona to Miami
- Miami to Tampa Bay
- And then Tampa Bay to San Francisco
I’m sure Rosen is probably busy, but it takes 10 seconds to update a Twitter profile. With that being said, today was an odd representation of all four of the franchises he’s played for during his short career.
Rosen didn’t get to play against his former team, however. The starting job was given to backup C.J. Beathard, who turned in a three-touchdown win (20-12 final score) over Arizona. At least Rosen’s team got the win, though.
