The Atlanta Falcons are signing former first-round quarterback Josh Rosen, after being cut by the San Francisco 49ers.
The Falcons are in need of additional help at quarterback following the loss of A.J. McCarron to a torn ACL on Saturday in a preseason game against the Miami Dolphins.
The hope in Atlanta, a source said, is that head coach Arthur Smith can deliver a similar career resurrection with Rosen that he was able to accomplish with Ryan Tannehill in Tennessee. While Smith’s work with Tannehill has helped push him in the upper echelon of quarterbacks in the NFL, Rosen is coming to Smith far less accomplished that Tannehill after his early seasons with the Dolphins.
