Bucs add QB Josh Rosen, K Greg Joseph to practice squad

NFL Destination Football

TAMPA, Fla. (AP)Quarterback Josh Rosen has landed on the practice squad of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he’ll get to learn from Tom Brady.

The Bucs also announced Tuesday the signing of kicker Greg Joseph to the practice squad, which still has one opening following the release of quarterback Reid Sinnett.

Rosen was the 10th overall pick in the 2018 draft by the Arizona Cardinals and is joining his third team in as many years.

He appeared in 14 games with 13 starts for Arizona as a rookie, then started three of six games he played with the Miami Dolphins, who acquired him in a 2019 trade.

The Dolphins released Rosen last week. Now, he’s reunited with Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich, who worked with him in Arizona.

”I think it was an excellent move. Josh wanted to be here. We wanted him here,” Bucs coach Bruce Arians said.

”I really liked him coming out. Byron had him for about eight or nine games as a starter with a really bad football team,” Arians added. ”He learned. He’s sharp. He’s big. He’s got everything you’re looking for. It’s a great guy to groom.”

Joseph spent the offseason with Tennessee, which signed him last December. He kicked in five games for the Titans, including the AFC championship game in January, and appeared in 14 games with the Cleveland Browns two years ago.
