As part of Howard’s new contract, the CB had $1 million in Pro Bowl incentives and $3.5 million in additional incentives added to his 2021 year, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. With all minicamp fines rescinded, Howard can make upwards of $16,285,294 in 2021, which would make him the league’s highest-paid CB this upcoming season.

In addition, Howard gets $500K in per-game roster bonuses and $100K in workout bonuses moved to base salary and guaranteed money in 2022. His $12.975 million salary in 2022 is guaranteed for injury and will be fully guaranteed by the first day of league year, Rapoport added; $6.775 million of the CB’s 2022 salary is fully guaranteed at signing.

TDS Take:

I happen to think this is a mistake and the only way it will prove NOT to be a mistake is if Miami wins the SB and as excited as I am as a Dolphins fan I just don’t see Miami winning the SB THIS YEAR! So what if Howard gets hurt, gets into legal trouble again, or just has a bad season? This team is still in rebuild mode and they should have traded Howard and gotten what they could at his highest value point.

There still is a way to correct this and that would be to look to trade Howard sometime at season’s end or the trade deadline this year. But they have opened up a can of worms by not taking care of players who should have received extensions before appeasing Howard and his new agent!
