  • Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Inks five-year extension

    Howard agreed to a five-year contract extension with the Dolphins on Friday, Josina Anderson of CBS Sports reports.

    Howard had requested a trade ahead of the 2021 campaign before agreeing to a restructured contract last year. However, he'll now be rewarded with a long-term deal to keep him in Miami. The 28-year-old appeared in 16 games for the Dolphins last season and tallied 50 tackles (39 solo), a sack, five interceptions, 16 pass defenses, two touchdowns, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

  • Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Contract questions loom

    The Dolphins and Howard may need to revisit contract discussions this offseason, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN reports.

    Howard requested a trade last offseason but agreed to play under a restructured contract for the 2021 season, in which he notched 50 tackles (39 solo), one sack, 16 pass breakups and five interceptions. Though Howard didn't reach a double-digit INT mark after doing so in 2020, he remains one of the clear top cornerbacks in the NFL and still proved an impact player with two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and two defensive touchdowns. Miami will likely need to offer Howard a more tantalizing contract in order to keep the Pro Bowler on the roster, a decision which the Dolphins will need to balance against a number of other key free-agency questions.

  • Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Snags another INT

    Howard had two tackles (one solo), one pass breakup and one interception during Sunday's win over the Giants.

    Howard has recorded an interception in back-to-back games, giving him four picks on the season. While the star cornerback isn't close to matching last season's mark of 10 interceptions, he remains the pillar of Miami's defense and could be primed to close out the year strong. After the Dolphins' bye, Howard will get a chance to perform against Zach Wilson and the Jets in Week 15.

  • Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Interception in win

    Howard tallied a solo tackle along with an interception in the 33-10 win over the Panthers on Sunday.

    Howard recorded only his third interception of the season, a significant decrease from last year where he totaled 10. The star corner's second-quarter interception put the Dolphins in prime position for a touchdown, which essentially put the game away early. Howard could force more interceptions in the next two weeks as he faces off against the Jets and Giants.

  • Dolphins' Xavien Howard: Scoop and score vs. Ravens

    Howard had five solo tackles and one forced fumble, which he recovered and returned for a touchdown, during Thursday's 22-10 win over the Ravens.

    Howard's strong performance was one of the key reasons Miami managed to hold Baltimore's passing offense to just 238 yards, and his 49-yard touchdown return on a forced fumble was arguably the team's most important play of the night. Heading into Week 11, Howard will look to do similar damage against a struggling Jets offense.
