The Dolphins have been very active this week, and another recognizable name may be going to Miami soon.

Free agent running back Jordan Howard is closing in on a deal with the Dolphins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The 25-year-old Howard was a fifth-round pick of the Bears in 2016 and had an excellent rookie year, topping 1,000 yards and making the Pro Bowl. But he wasn’t quite as effective the next two years, and the Bears traded him to the Eagles for a 2020 sixth-round pick. He ran for 525 yards in his season in Philadelphia.

Miami has been as aggressive as any team in free agency, showing that after beginning the rebuilding effort last year, they’re eager to take a big step forward this year.

  1. That’s a shame because I was hoping the Eagles would re sign him. Howard is a great runningback.

  2. Add Tom Brady and they suddenly look like a lock to overtake Patriots as a favorite to make the playoffs.

  3. There’s a reason he didn’t get resigned in Philly. Rumor was he was part of the faction against Wentz with Alshon and Agholor in the locker room. After he hurt his shoulder he milked it until it was clear that the Eagles had a chance to make the playoffs. After he finally said “OK I’m healthy!” it was too late. Miles Sanders and Boston Scott took over and Howard, who was very much in discussions for an extension, was sent packing.

  4. So stupid. As I post making fun of their Grugier-Hill/Ereck Flowers signings with the word choice of “landed” said player, we see this.

    This is classic Miami. They don’t get it. Chris Grier is a moron like his dad was when it came to understanding basic economics and teambuilding.

    My goodness. You just sign any tom, dick or harry that becomes available in the same FA period based on need.

    That’s literally Cap Era Teambuilding cardinal sin 101.

    LOL!

    Meanwhile, BB has what, 6 draft picks from 2019 that are in the bldg, learning, etc, and will add 10+ more this year for cheap youth infusing on the roster, with a base of conitnuity and leadership in house.

    How are Ereck Flowers or this guy leaders or good value?

    Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

  5. Seems like some Pats fans are feeling a little left out. Maybe they lost their pacifier?

  6. “He ran for 525 yards in his season in Philadelphia”… when he could actually run. Good luck, ‘Phins!

  7. What does “tylawspick6” really know about football?? We beat you in your own building and you had Tom Brady. Now you don’t have Tom Brady, Van Noy, others and we got better. What do you think is going to happen next year?? I will give you a clue…It involves my broom!! ROFL!!!

    You’re about to be really embarrassed come next year. Your morons wouldn’t know a good teambuild since 1982 with David Woodley as the QB for crying out loud.

    I love it! Same mistakes over and over and over to sell tickets in a crap Southern market.

    All the southern teams do it because the owners know they have finicky fans.

    Pats are loaded and now have the ability to swing a trade or two as well with so many draft picks. And, they’ll be healthy next year as well which is great since it’s an even season, where the odd seasons they always have injury issues.

    Thank you BB! For everything.

    Isn’t it so strange? Their fans are so dumb. You don’t pay in FA for overrated RBs. They’re a dime a dozen and come cheap in the draft. They think spending money wildly means an overnight sensation yet it never works. Their O Line blows, they have no QB and no WRs other than Parker.

    Maybe the should change their uniform like the Jets? LOL!

    Ohhh! Our building with a gift from Brady who blew the game and the season for Pats fans.

    It’s why he is fired, dummy. It’s been trending poorly for a couple of years now. It was only late in 2018 or in January where Brady woke up. His 2018 start and into 2019’s regular season was substandard.

    I had it nailed all along. And, who cares about your win anyway? You haven’t been to a SB since 1982!

    Mortifying!

  11. Like to see TB12 in Tampa Bay were he can enjoy the game again. The Patriot players leaving town this fast is something. My guess is Thuney wishes he could get out too but it looks loke he’s stuck there. Now, with Tom gone its just not the same. Btw, Who is their QB now?

  12. Teddy Bridgewater chose Carolina over New England. Where’s tylaw’ssocks?? ROFL!!! I hear Jameis Winston is available…ROFL!!!
