It's been no secret that Jordan Howard's future in Chicago is anything but clear following the conclusion of the 2018-2019 season as the ​Bears were actively shopping the 24-year-old running back throughout the course of last season. 


According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports, the Bears are once again looking to deal Howard, who is coming off his worst season with the Bears - 935 rushing yards on just 3.7 yards per carry. 

The news comes as no surprise as the dynamic and slippery Tarik Cohen dominated touches down the stretch and as we know, Matt Nagy adores running backs he can trust catching the ball out of the backfield - something that just isn't Howard's forte. 


Drafted in the fifth round by ​Chicago in 2016 out of Indiana, Howard totaled 1,000 or more yards from scrimmage in all three of his seasons with the franchise. 

In those three seasons, the Hoosier product recorded 25 touchdowns on 3,938 total yards from scrimmage (3,370 rushing, 568 receiving).

Howard is entering the final year of his four-year rookie deal and is set to make a base salary of just $720,000 in 2019.
