Former top-10 quarterback Josh Rosen will get another opportunity on an active roster.
The injury-plagued 49ers are signing Rosen from the Buccaneers’ practice squad, according to multiple reports.
Rosen will back up C.J. Beathard, who is slated to start with both Nick Mullens and Jimmy Garoppolo injured.
The Cardinals took Rosen with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, then decided to draft Kyler Murray and move on from Rosen a year later. Arizona traded Rosen to Miami, where he didn’t look any better in his second season. He signed with the Buccaneers’ practice squad after being cut by Miami.
Now the 49ers are taking him from the Bucs’ practice squad, and he’ll get a step closer to a return to the field.
