Josh Rosen Is Rumoured To Have Signed With The San Francisco 49ers
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Rosen had been signed off to the San Francisco 49ers, just days before their game with the Cardinals. He will backup Beathard. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, the 49ers were eyeing Rosen when he was on the trading block for the Dolphins.
Fans have been reacting to the news, saying that they would love to see Kyle Shanahan give the former first round pick in action. One Twitter user shared,
“I fully expect Beathard to start Saturday, but Josh Rosen parachuting in just in time to start against Arizona, the team that drafted him, would be at least mildly intriguing”.
If approved by Beathard, Rosen could get a chance at running the 49ers offence and get his revenge against the team that traded him off to the Dolphins.
