The Dolphins gave Howard a two-year contract which would indicate confidence that the shoulder injury which cost him six of the last seven games of the 2019 season was not a concern. However, they acquired Matt Breida as well. While the two are not duplicate backs and Breida has durability concerns, it's clear the team wanted insurance. Howard will likely get the carries for at least the first two downs, though he may give way to Breida for the short yardage carries the physical former Niner is good at. All this leads to Howard as a potential flex or high end third fantasy running back. (May 6)

Eagles | Jordan Howard signs with PHI (Mon Nov 23, 10:03 AM) - Updating a previous report, free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Dolphins) signed with the Philadelphia Eagles' practice squad Monday, Nov. 23.

Our View: Howard is back with the Eagles after failing to impress during his time with the Dolphins. He will try to earn a short-yardage and perhaps goal-line role for the Eagles (best case scenario) behind starter Miles Sanders.

Eagles | Philly set to bring back Jordan Howard (Thu Nov 19, 06:43 PM) - Free-agent RB Jordan Howard (Dolphins) is expected to join the practice squad of the Philadelphia Eagles after he clears COVID-19 protocols, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Dolphins | Jordan Howard done in Miami (Mon Nov 16, 02:05 PM) - Miami Dolphins RB Jordan Howard was waived Monday, Nov. 16.

Our View: Howard was unimpressive during his time with the Dolphins. He was mainly used as a goal-line back, finishing with 28 carries for 33 yards and four rushing touchdowns. Any team that wants to sign Howard will still have to pay him around $720k of his remaining 2020 salary. Salvon Ahmed will continue as the lead back for the Dolphins as they prepare to face a weak Broncos rush defense in Week 11.

Dolphins | Week 10 Miami Dolphins inactives (Sun Nov 15, 02:46 PM) - The Miami Dolphins have declared RB Lynn Bowden, OL Adam Pankey, RB Matt Breida, RB Jordan Howard and FB Chandler Cox inactive for Week 10.

Our View: With Howard down DeAndre Washington and Salvon Ahmed could get a chance to show their stuff in the Dolphins backfield today.
