Dolphins make Xavien Howard highest paid defensive back in NFL history

The day has finally arrived.

After months of speculating, the Miami Dolphins today, made Xavien Howard the highest paid defensive back in NFL history.  The former second-round pick from Baylor, struggled early on in his career-before taking the next step in 2018.  And for a team that has very little resembling a shutdown defensive back, the move was absolutely necessary.  Howard now becomes the face of the Dolphins’ defense, and will be tasked with shutting down the opposition’s No.1 wide receiver.

Here are the details according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Howard, 25, led the NFL in interceptions last season with seven.  He was also invited to his first Pro Bowl–if you believe those type of things matter.

Now that the Dolphins inked Howard to a lucrative long-term deal, they will now focus on resigning left tackle, Laremy Tunsil.
