The Miami Dolphins may disagree with Xavien Howard over his contract, but there are other players who should get a new one first.
As for Xavien Howard, the Miami Dolphins landed a gem when they drafted him in the second round of the 2016 draft. Howard had made some noise before the 2018 season by wanting a new contract. He had been on his rookie contract for two years.
In 2019, the Dolphins gave him a 5-year contract which at the time made him the highest-paid player on the Dolphins and NFL roster in his role. Two years after signing that contract extension, Howard now wants more money and a new contract.
The problem is, Miami has other players who need a new contract. This offseason they have extended both Jason Sanders and Jerome Baker and it apparently hasn’t pleased Howard who, according to the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, is adamant about getting a new contract.
While it may be, the Dolphins need to focus on other positions before they start breaking the bank on a player who has already seen his contract extended three years after signing his rookie contract and now two years after. have signed its extension. While we’re all happy that his 2020 season has been so good, the point is, he’s doing the job Miami is paying him for. Sorry “X” but if I’m the Dolphins I love you too man, but these two players should get their new offers first.
