Report: Jordan Howard visiting with rival NFC team
If the Eagles had any plans to bring back Jordan Howard, they better act fast.
According to Brooke Kirchhofer of WWL-TV, the New Orleans Saints are hosting the former Eagles’ RB on a tryout tomorrow:

Howard spent last season with the Eagles. He was drafted in 2016 by the Bears.
Howard has been with the Eagles on three separate occasions, most recently in 2021. The power back found success in relief of Miles Sanders last season, rushing for 406 yards and three TDs in seven appearances.
The Eagles currently have five running backs on the roster ahead of training camp:
- Miles Sanders
- Kenneth Gainwell
- Boston Scott
- Jason Huntley
- Kennedy Brooks
Brooks out of Oklahoma is the most intriguing option in short-yardage situations. He has superb vision and can drag defenders for yards after contact. If Sanders — who is entering a contract year — can stay healthy, Nick Sirianni shouldn’t have to dip too far into the depth chart.
