When McCarron, who signed with Atlanta in April, tore his right anterior cruciate ligament in the second quarter of Saturday’s preseason game against the Dolphins in Miami, ending his season, that position was vacated.

Earlier on Monday, Falcons head coach Arthur Smith said the team will train and add a quarterback to compete with Feleipe Franks as a replacement for starting Matt Ryan. He’s open to the Falcons’ current quarterback situation.

Smith said. ‚ÄúThis doesn’t mean that if we add another person this week, we will continue to pay attention to this issue. It doesn’t mean we can’t add another person next week. “

Smith does not rule out the possibility that everyone they sign will play in the preseason final against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Ryan and most of the other Atlanta Falcons starters haven’t competed in this preseason yet, but Smith said they will spend the week with everyone ready to play, then evaluate the real plan over the weekend. In theory, this would include Rosen, but if he were playing against the Browns, he could use a limited script because he has to memorize the terminology and then learn as much as possible.

Smith said, “I just think someone is going to throw it out and say, ‘Here, this is the whole game plan. You better run it. It’s unfair.” “So, it depends on whom we sign, you know they’ll be ready to go.”

This will be 24-year-old Rosen’s fifth NFL team since being selected 10th overall by the Arizona Cardinals in 2018. The previous UCLA star started 13 competitions as a rookie in Arizona, completing 2,278 yards, 11 touchdowns, completing 55.2% of his passes, and 14 interceptions. At the end of Rosen’s rookie season, the Cardinals fired Steve Wilks and hired Kliff Kingsbury as their coach. The Cardinals selected Kyler Murray as the first overall pick in 2019 and then traded Rosen to Miami. He started three games in 2019 and completed 53.2% of passes, 567 yards, and 1 touchdown, and 5 interceptions.

Rosen was waived by the Miami team in September 2020 – the team selected Tua Tagovailoa with the 5th overall pick in the 2020 draft – and he eventually went to the Tampa Bay training team. San Francisco took him from the Buccaneers training team in December, but he did not appear in the game. The San Francisco 49ers fielded Trey Lance with the 3rd overall pick in 2021 and gave up Rosen last week.
