#Dolphins CB Xavien Howard, who led the NFL in INTs (10) & passes defensed (20) last year, did not show up for mandatory minicamp.
Brian Flores said it’s a contract situation. Howard signed a 5-year, $75M deal in ‘19 which at the time made him the highest paid CB. He’s now 6th.
Brian Flores says he hasn’t seen star CB Xavien Howard today in meetings and not sure he’ll be here for mandatory minicamp.
“It’s pretty clear this is a contract situation, which we’ve talked about internally. We’ve had discussions and we’ll continue to have those discussions.”
The #Dolphins are taking the field for the first practice of minicamp and star CB Xavien Howard isn't there, I'm told. Officially a holdout.
Players not participating in their respective minicamps over presumptive contract issues include: Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore, Dolphins CB Xavien Howard, Seahawks S Jamal Adams, Cardinals Edge Chandler Jones.
(Yes, Aaron Rodgers is in a different category) https://t.co/1Vra3PG2rs
Xavien Howard should absolutely ask for more money, the NFL doesnt last forever and you gotta maximize the bag. IF the Dolphins don’t concede i need at least two first round picks tho.
Xavien Howard is not showing up to mandatory minicamp due to a contact situation.

#Dolphins Tuesday’s minicamp updates: CB Xavien Howard isn’t here. DE Emmanuel Ogbah is here for the first time this offseason. And TE Mike Gesicki is in a red, no contact jersey, and wearing a sleeve on his left arm. He had shoulder worked on this offseason.
Give Xavien Howard whatever he wants I don't care
Dolphins coach Brian Flores doesn't expect CB Xavien Howard at minicamp: "It's pretty clear that this is a contract situation"
But I have to admit this Xavien Howard situation is challenging my views. He signed a 5 year extension that made him the highest paid corner in football. He’s one year into it. And to top it off, this is a year where budgets got crunched by pandemic effects on revenues.

Dolphins star CB Xavien Howard reportedly isn't happy about making less than other corners, including teammate Byron Jones. 😬
Not surprised that Xavien Howard didn't show up to camp today. We said last week at @PFN365
that there was a good possibility that his agent would make some noise and force the Dolphins' hand.
It's early, but if the Dolphins want to trade him, can they?
Stay up-to-date with updates…Xavien Howard wasn’t the only Miami Dolphins player missing from Day 1 of minicamp
Hello content idea!!
It got pretty heated actually re: the No. 5 spot. Should make for interesting discussion points if anything happens with the Dolphins + Xavien Howard and who we’d put at #5.
What would you do re: the Xavien Howard situation?
if xavien howard wants to go hang with the Buffalo Bills instead, i wouldn't be mad about it...
I would love to see Xavien Howard in a Chiefs uniform. He wants a new deal, a substantial deal and I just don’t expect the Chiefs to make that move at a position that they’ve pieced together with bargain deals over the last several seasons.

Posiblemente por lesión.
