Two playoff teams inquire about possibility of trading for Dolphins CB Xavien Howard

It didn't take long for the Xavien Howard trade saga to gain a little steam.

A day after the veteran cornerback formally requested a trade, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that two playoff teams are among the clubs that have already made calls to the Dolphins to inquire about the possibility of trading for the 28-year-old All-Pro.

The specific teams were not identified but Rapoport did note that they aren't alone, citing that "others" have contacted Miami, as well.

He added that Howard practiced fully on Wednesday and has handled himself like a professional as the situation continues to play out.

Howard, 28, has been a significant name to watch throughout the offseason, dating back to the six-year pro's decision to skip Miami's minicamp in June over contract disputes.

With training camp officially underway, it'll be interesting to see the decision team brass makes regarding Howard's future.
