Texans signing with  Xavien Howard $90 Million on blockbuster trade as Pro Bowler agent…

Xavien Howard, an All-Pro cornerback, is now unrestricted by contract, but he is hoping to sign with a certain team.

Four-time Pro Bowler and one-time All-Pro cornerback Xavien Howard has a case as the best free agent remaining at his position. Following an unceremonious release from the Miami Dolphins, the former second-round pick promised he would not return to the team, even at a discounted rate. While he has yet to choose his next team, the cornerback is hoping one organization shows interest in him.

The AFC is crowded with talent, as teams like the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, and Cincinnati Bengals are all among the best in the league. While these heavyweights were probably the four best teams of the past five years, younger teams like the Houston Texans are looking to challenge their conference supremacy.

Led by young quarterback C.J. Stroud, the Texans surprised everyone by making it to the AFC Divisional Round during Stroud’s rookie season. After adding several key playmakers during free agency, Houston is set to establish themselves as a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Xavien Howard is impressed with what the team has done and hopes to sign with the Texans as a free agent.

During a recent appearance on The OG’s Podcast, Xavien Howard discussed his immediate future as a free agent. When asked about the Texans specifically, the four-time Pro Bowler wasted no time in praising the organization.“I would love to do that; back at home, the crib. I have Houston Rockets and the Texans tatted on me…It’s a realistic option for me. They have a hell of a quarterback. I love a defensive coach.”

As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why Xavien Howard would want to sign with the Texans as a free agent. In addition to all the talent on the roster, Howard is from Houston and would love nothing more than to deliver a championship to his city. The Texans, meanwhile, need someone to start opposite Derek Stingley.

This fit makes plenty of sense for both sides, but at the end of the best, Xavien Howard will probably sign with the highest bidder as a free agent. While Howard isn’t the same lockdown corner he used to be, he can still help a defense and you can never have too many reliable cornerbacks. In no particular order, these five teams could prevent Howard from going to Houston.
