Former high first-round pick Josh Rosen has found another home, making the Atlanta Falcons’ 53-man roster.

The Falcons are carrying three quarterbacks; Feleipe Franks, an undrafted rookie, also made the team behind starting QB Matt Ryan.

The Falcons signed Rosen on Aug. 24 after AJ McCarron went down with a season-ending ACL injury. McCarron was in line to be Ryan’s primary backup.

Rosen, 24, was the No. 10 overall selection by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2018 NFL Draft. After a rocky rookie season — a 3-10 record as a starter, 11 touchdowns and 14 interceptions — the Cardinals traded him to the Miami Dolphins and selected Kyler Murray with the No. 1 overall pick in 2019.

The Dolphins lost all three games he started in Miami in 2019 and released Rosen. He did not see game action in 2020, spending most of the season on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ practice squad before the San Francisco 49ers signed him in December.

San Francisco released Rosen earlier this month.

In his career, Rosen has completed 54.8 percent of his passes (275 of 502) for 2,845 yards with 12 TDs and 19 interceptions.
