CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - The Cleveland Browns will sign former first-round QB Josh Rosen to a one-year deal, ESPN Insider Adam Schefter reports.

The 25-year-old has jumped around five other NFL teams, including:

  • Arizona Cardinals - 2018
  • Miami Dolphins - 2019
  • San Francisco 49ers - 2020
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Sept. 8, 2020
  • Atlanta Falcons - 2021

The Manhattan Beach, Calif. native played at UCLA, where he was named Freshman All-American and PAC-12 Freshman Offensive Player of the Year accolades in 2015.

Rosen set the Bruins’ record for passing yards for a single season his junior year.

NFL.com’s Nick Shook reported that Rosen’s signing would end the chances of A.J. McCarron joining the Dawg Pound.
