He also knows nothing is guaranteed for him.
He’ll need to earn a spot in a room that features three experienced QBs in Deshaun Watson, Jacoby Brissett and Josh Dobbs, and he’ll need to do it by benefiting from his training camp reps.
Those reps could be limited to begin for Rosen. Stefanski said Wednesday he plans to provide the majority of camp reps to Watson and Brissett, but when the ball is in his hands, Rosen won’t take it without any consideration. The constant shuffling of teams has prevented him from attaining a consistent intake of reps under the identical system.
“My mission is to learn the offense and earn those reps and play football,” he said. “I have been with 3-4 teams the last couple years and have not gotten an entire lot of reps. I feel over time, it’ll be good to place my head down, prove I’m an asset within the room and just play football.”
Despite a scarcity of reps, Rosen still feels he’s learned quite a bit from his time with other teams.
He’s been in quarterback rooms with Tom Brady, Matt Ryan and Ryan Fitzpatrick, who he highlighted as someone who helped him learn learn how to slow the sport down. Rosen was the backup to Fitzpatrick in 2019 and early a part of 2020 with Miami.
“The lightbulb went off after I was around Ryan,” he said. “Quite a lot of (what he taught me) has to do with when to make the sport complicated and when to make it easy. At times, you may overcomplicate the sport, and a number of it’s about keeping it easy when it must be easy.
“Then, you’ve third downs, red zones and your big plays where you should see more of the sphere. Quite a lot of it’s being fast, efficient and knowing your keys.”
Rosen could have a likelihood to use what he’s learned during training camp.
It’s the subsequent opportunity he has in a profession that is been stuffed with tough lessons, but he’s able to prove he’s grown from them in a Browns uniform.
“I have been in a number of different systems, and I feel I’ve learned a number of football the previous couple of years,” he said. “I’m really just attempting to get some reps to use what I’ve learned, and I feel those will include time.”
