Dolphins open to cornerback Xavien Howard returning to the team



Xavien Howard’s impending release from the Miami Dolphins has attracted significant interest from NFL teams, with his agent actively exploring potential

opportunities for the talented cornerback. Despite the announcement of his release, Dolphins’ General Manager Chris Grier has left the door open for Howard’s possible return, reflecting on their positive history and indicating ongoing communication.

As Howard enters free agency, his agent, David Canter, is actively seeking potential suitors, with the Houston Texans showing apparent interest, especially given Howard’s hometown connection. Despite injury concerns, Howard’s exceptional ball skills and coverage abilities make him a sought-after asset for teams seeking defensive reinforcement.

Howard’s departure leaves a significant void for the Dolphins, with former teammate Jalen Ramsey emphasizing his impact as the greatest cornerback in Dolphins history. The team may explore various options in free agency to address this gap, considering veterans like Stephone Gilmore or Rock Ya Sin as potential replacements. Additionally, trades for veteran cornerbacks, similar to the acquisition of Ramsey last season, could be explored to bolster the defensive lineup.

As the Dolphins navigate their options, the prospect of replacing Howard looms large, with potential candidates eyeing opportunities to join the team. The coming days are likely to see further developments as teams assess their needs and available options in the cornerback market.
