Howard was waived by the Bears on Saturday.
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 signed with the Bears in the wake of season-ending hip surgery that curtailed his 2016 campaign. He should see plenty of playing time Saturday as Chicago management looks to solidify its defensive line rotation.
