Dolphins open minicamp amid Xavien Howard contract questions
DAVIE, Fla. — (AP) — All-Pro cornerback and reigning NFL interception leader Xavien Howard wants a new contract from the Miami Dolphins, and there is no guarantee he will attend the three-day mandatory minicamp starting Tuesday. The Dolphins have had talks internally about Howard’s contract, coach Brian Flores said. Howard led the NFL with 10 interceptions last season — only two other players in the league had more than five. Byron Jones, who got an $82 million, five-year contract last year, holds that distinction. Howard is due to make about $12 million in base salary this season, the second year of a five-year, $75 million extension that could run through 2024.wftv.com
