Miami Dolphins, CB Xavien Howard Agree To New 5-Year Deal

MIAMI (CBSMiami) - The Miami Dolphins and Xavien Howard agreed to a new five-year deal on Friday evening. 

The new five-year contract is worth $50 million in new money, according to Howard's agent David Canter, CBS4 News partner the Miami Herald posted.

This new deal gives him a new-money average of $25.3 million for the final two years of the deal.

That now makes Howard the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history.

In six seasons with the Dolphins, the pro-bowl cornerback has recorded 27 interceptions and 241 tackles.

This comes as the latest move after the team recently traded for former Kansas City Cheifs wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
