Josh Rosen, QB
I’m not saying that Josh Rosen is going to be a stud. In fact, I would be shocked if he was anything above average in the future.
However, the Titans need a QB with experience and very few quarterbacks have the (pre-draft) name value of Josh Rosen. So, in my head, there is a world where the Titans have Rosen as the backup in Tennessee for a year or two and then either flip him for a pick or they let him walk and get a compensatory pick back.
Think about Teddy Bridgewater, he was a 1st round draft pick and he has been traded for a 3rd round pick in the past.
Despite starting just 6 games for the Saints over the past two seasons, Bridgewater was given a good contract by the Carolina Panthers that will likely net them a 3rd round compensatory pick.
The value of a former first round quarterback is always enticing to GMs and coaches, especially if they see just enough of them to believe they have changed.
With that in mind, a trade for Rosen gives you a cheap backup QB that has name value and might be able to work in the offense you run now. That makes perfect sense for Titans fans and for the front office.
