https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/miami-dolphins/xavien-howard-18986/ For those concerned about the contract, here are the details via Sportrac. 2019: 10.25m cap hit (27.9m dead money if cut) 2020: 13.25m cap hit (17.5m dead money if cut) 2021: 13.50m cap hit (4.20m dead money if cut) 2022: 14.38m cap hit (2.80m dead money if cut) 2023: 13.40m cap hit (1.40m dead money if cut) 2024: 12.25m cap hit (zero dead money) So, not only does the cap hit not explode over the years like many contracts, it actually gets smaller in the last two years. So if Howard stays healthy, he's actually likely going to be quite the bargain during the second half of the deal. And if he does suddenly fall off of a cliff in ability, then the team can cut him with few consequences starting as early as 2021! Its a really good job by the team, frankly.
