Xavien Howard: I don’t feel valued and respected by Dolphins, they didn’t deal with me in good faith

Two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Xavien Howard has requested a trade from the Miami Dolphins amid a contract dispute.

Howard, who earned a First-team All-Pro nod last season, noted in a statement posted on his Instagram account that he didn’t ask for a new deal but he simply wanted to rework his current deal and make it a “win-win situation for both sides.”

Howard, who is one the top cornerbacks in the league, is the sixth highest-paid quarterback in the league and the second highest-paid quarterback on his team.

In 2019, Howard signed a five-year, $75.25 million extension with the Dolphins.

Howard noted he didn’t feel the Dolphins dealt with him a “good faith.”

“I don’t feel valued or respected by the Dolphins. Just like they take a business-first approach, so can I. That is why I want to make it clear I’m not happy, and have requested a trade. Until that trade happens, I am just here so I don’t get fined, and will handle myself like professionals do;” Howard added.
