College and amateur
Rosenlund played college soccer at the University of California, Santa Barbara. He was a member of the UCSB Gauchos squad that reached the 2004 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship which lost to Indiana Hoosiers on penalties. He eventually won a National Championship with the Gauchos by beating the UCLA Bruins in the 2006 NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship.
After the 2006 NCAA season ended, Rosenlund left UC Santa Barbara early. He trialed with Allmanna Idrottsklubben of the Swedish Premier Division Allsvenskan and later moved on another trial with IFK Mariehamn in the Finnish Premier Division, Veikkausliiga. He failed to secure a contract with either club, but made one appearance for IFK Mariehamn in the Finnish League Cup.
After his short spell in Finland he headed back to Sweden and secured a contract with Atvidabergs FF in the Swedish second tier, Superettan. He made a couple of appearances for AFF before he was released by the club.
On 21 March 2008, Toronto FC announced Tyler Rosenlund was signed to a senior developmental contract.< He made his Toronto FC debut on 5 April 2008, appearing as an 83rd-minute substitute during a 4-1 defeat to D.C. United. He was the first Canadian-born player to score for Toronto FC, which happened at BMO Field against Chivas USA on 6 September 2008.
He was released by Toronto in February 2009 and signed later with Surrey United.
Rosenlund signed with USSF Division 2 Professional League club Rochester Rhinos in March 2010. He was a mainstay of the club in 2010 and 2011, being named team most valuable player in the latter year. Rochester re-signed Rosenlund for the 2012 season on November 21, 2011.
Whitecaps FC 2
Rosenlund played briefly for Surrey United Firefighters in the Vancouver Metro Soccer League following his departure from Rochester. The stay was short-lived as it was announced on February 26th, 2015 that Rosenlund had joined Whitecaps FC 2.
Rosenlund made his first international appearance with the Canadian men's national team on 30 January 2008.
