It appears some playoff teams have called the Miami Dolphins about the services of cornerback Xavien Howard, who recently requested a trade.
Less than a day after CB Xavien Howard requested a trade, two playoff teams called the #Dolphins inquiring about trading for Howard, source said. Others have, too. Howard, by the way, practiced fully today and has handled himself like a professional.

Howard, 28, publicly revealed his desire to be traded from the Dolphins on Tuesday.
The cornerback doesn’t feel like he is extremely valued by the Dolphins. He led the NFL last season with 10 interceptions and 20 defended passes.
Of course, numerous teams are going to be interested in the star. After all, he is one of the best cornerbacks in the league.
Although Howard’s demand to be traded is public, he has been a complete professional. Dolphins head coach Brian Flores spoke highly of Howard, and he is optimistic a resolution between both parties can be reached.
