Several National Football League insiders reported the news, including Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport. Howard got released from the Buffalo Bills after spending five months with them. He received a Super Bowl ring in 2020 for being on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Howard played in four games because of an Achilles injury. He was a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Howard remains in the AFC, but he joins the AFC South. Hopefully, he can make noise in Houston.
