The 25-year-old rushed for 525 yards and six touchdowns in 10 games for the Eagles last season. Howard spent his first three years in the league with the Bears, where he rushed for 24 total touchdowns and went for over 1000 yards in two of his three seasons.
Howard’s presence is a huge boost for a Dolphins team that had quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick as its leading rusher in 2019. The quarterback had 243 rushing yards.
The Dolphins have been one of the most active teams in free agency with deals for cornerback Byron Jones, defensive ends Emmanuel Ogbah and Shaq Lawson, linebacker Kyle Van Noy, and offensive lineman Ereck Flowers.
