On Tuesday evening, the star cornerback took to social media to formally announce that he has requested a trade from the Dolphins amid a contract dispute."I've given my heart and soul to the Miami Dolphins franchise since they drafted me in 2016, and want to make it clear that I love my teammates," Howard's statement reads."In 2018, I signed an extension that I'll admit I didn't completely understand, or feel comfortable with.
These were proposals of adjustments that wouldn't just make me feel more respected, but were also cap friendly.
I don't feel valued or respected by the Dolphins.
That is why I want to make it clear I'm not happy, and have requested a trade
Until that trade happens, I am just here so I don't get fined, and will handle myself like professionals do."ÂHoward's final note in his trade request is a nod to the All-Pro corner arriving at Dolphins training camp earlier on Tuesday, electing to participate instead of being fined amid a holdout
In March 2020, the Dolphins signed Bryon Jones to a five-year, $82 million, which made him the league's highest-paid corner at the timeIf the Dolphins concede to Howard's trade request, it will be fascinating to see what they'll be able to fetch for him
