Sources: Fins switch to QB Rosen, add Taco to D

The Miami Dolphins are making the switch to Josh Rosen at quarterback and claimed defensive end Taco Charlton off waivers, sources confirmed to ESPN.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Nothing more important for Dolphins over next 7 1/2 months than figuring out their long-term QB plan. Josh Rosen, despite extremely tough circumstances, now has a chance to make his case starting this week at Dallas. Rosen's turn was bound to come given the team gave up a second-round pick to acquire him, and he's got a stronger grasp of Miami's offense in recent weeks. He still believes he can prove to the team that he could be their long-term answer. At the very least, he brings a spark to a team that was outscored 102-10 over their first two games.

Dolphins have claimed former Cowboys DE Taco Charlton, source says. Charlton was Dallas 2017 first-round pick who the team waived Wednesday.

Brian Flores on more players feeling empowered to ask for trades: "It's not disheartening; but as a guy who has built his career on building relationships, you hate to see that. That's kind of how I felt about the Minkah situation. But like everything else, you deal with a little adversity and you have to move on, get better and try to improve the team. As far as what happens around the league, I'm not there. I don't know what those situations are like. I really don't have much of an opinion on it, to be honest with you. It's not something I think about."

The Dolphins' -14.4 FPI rating is the worst rating by any team in any week in the history of the model (back to 2008). That rating means FPI estimates that the Dolphins are about two touchdowns worse than an *average* team on a neutral field.

Brian Flores says again Ryan Fitzpatrick is his starting QB. Subject to change in future, but Fitz is his guy now. Flores mentions Fitzpatrick's intelligence, leadership and comfort of what they are doing offensively. "He's a guy I have a lot of trust in. I like Fitz a lot."

He said HOU kept pursing on Tunsil & when Tunsil saw trade terms on the board he joked: "I would trade me for that too."
