Howard posted 23 tackles in eight games for Kansas City last season, but a poor preseason led to his departure from Chicago. He's a candidate to be picked up by a team looking for depth on its defensive front.
Howard (hip) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Saturday's preseason game against the Cardinals.

Howard (hip) expects to be fully cleared before the start of training camp, Brad Biggs of The Chicago Tribune reports.
Howard underwent offseason surgery to remove bone spurs in his hip, which was the injury that sidelined him for the final eight games of the 2016 season. Since he was healthy enough to participate in OTAs in May and June, it is completely believable that he'll be ready for training camp in late July.

Howard was released by the Chiefs, where he spent four seasons, in mid-April after his 2016 campaign ended early due to a hip injury.

It's been a slow start to the campaign for Howard, but his role doesn't exactly translate to fantasy relevance anyway. His output Sunday was respectable but much more than that shouldn't be expected in terms of upside.
Howard signed a two-year deal with the Chiefs worth $12 million, Rand Getlin of NFL Network reports.
Howard, 28, had played in all 32 games for the Chiefs over the past two seasons and logged 24 starts, 62 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Look for him to remain a constant presence on the Kansas City defensive line.
Howard collected 57 tackles (21 solo), 5.5 sacks one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in the 2015 regular season.
Howard really took to his role this season outperforming his other three campaigns combined. Still in his rookie contract, Howard will now enter the offseason an unrestricted free agent, and could receive several offers from teams looking for a man of his size (6-foot-3, 301 pounds) to clog up the middle.
