    "The Dolphins met with representatives for cornerback Xavien Howard in Indianapolis this week and conveyed interest in signing him to a longterm contract, according to a team source.

    Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said publicly this week that Howard is fully expected to be on the team in 2019. But the Dolphins went further in their meeting, making clear they view him as a key part of their longterm future.

    Howard, who is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019 season, is open to signing a longterm deal this offseason if the money is right.

    The sides did not discuss money in their meeting, but the Dolphins are aware of what it takes to sign top corners – likely something in the range of $13 million to $15 million annually.

    ...

    The Dolphins, during the meeting, said they have other issues to attend to in the coming weeks but would likely present a longterm offer to Howard this summer."

    I like the kid, if we can get a fair deal for him I wound not be against that. We need 2 shut down corners, and 2 good safeties to run that patriot style defense.

    That's really good news. His agent is currently suspended, so I was worried that we might not be able to talk to his reps. But the team and other people from the agency must be working things out without him. If Howard is healthy, then the Fins need to lock him up. He's worth it, and we're going to be cutting a lot of other costs the next two years.
