    According to Amber Wilson of 790 The Ticket in Miami, domestic battery charges against Howard have been dismissed. Howard was arrested in December after an argument with his fiancée.

    The police report from that incident said the altercation went from verbal to physical, with Howard allegedly grabbing both her arms and pushing her against a wall. The officer who responded to the scene observed scratches and “redness” on her arms.

    The NFL is still investigating the incident, and the league has shown it isn’t bound by legal decisions when handing out suspensions. The Dolphins left a little distance between themselves and Howard by not including him in promotional materials for 2020, though they made a significant financial commitment to him last spring.

    My guess is he will get hit with a four game suspension... i worry if Xavien will come back to the player he was before with all this time off.

    Charges dropped and it was a minor thing. 4 games seems a bit much.

    Two games seems about what I'd expect the NFL to do. That said, I don't see Howard getting ANOTHER contract from Miami. Domestic concerns and knee issues make another extension too risky.
