Reports: Dolphins waive struggling RB Howard
The Miami Dolphins waived struggling running back Jordan Howard on Monday, multiple outlets reported.
Howard, who was inactive for Sunday’s win against the Los Angeles Chargers, will hit the waiver wire. Head coach Brian Flores labeled the move a mutual parting.
The 26-year-old signed a two-year, $9.75 million contract with Miami in March, including $4.75 million guaranteed.
He has gained just 33 yards on 28 carries (1.2-yard average) in five games this season, scoring four touchdowns.
Howard began his NFL career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with Chicago in 2016 and 2017, making the Pro Bowl as a rookie.
His career totals include 3,928 rushing yards and 34 touchdowns with 83 catches for 634 yards and two scores in 62 games with the Bears (2016-18), Philadelphia Eagles (2019) and Dolphins.
Undrafted rookie Salvon Ahmed started and ran for 85 yards and a touchdown on Sunday as Miami (6-3) extended its winning streak to five games with a 29-21 defeat of the Chargers.
