Miami Dolphins Head Coach Brian Flores insisted on Friday that the team does not want to trade their star defensive Xavien Howard.

The Dolphins brass proved him right on Sunday by coming to terms on a restructured contract for their All-Pro cornerback, who had expressed his desire to be traded in the offseason or to have his contract re-worked.

“We want all sides to be happy,” Coach Flores said Sunday before practice. “We feel like that’s the case right now, and that’s how we’ll move forward.”

The new deal includes incentives of $1 million for a Pro Bowl or All-Pro season, according to our partners at the Sun Sentinel. Snap percentage bonuses will also come into play, with $1 million at 90 percent and $750,000 at each 80 and 70 percent.

Howard, who tied a franchise record with 10 interceptions last season, will now earn a guaranteed $12,785,294 in 2021, and as much as $16,285,294 with all of the incentives.
