The Philadelphia Eagles are bringing back Jordan Howard, agreeing with the running back on a one-year deal.

Howard, 26, was a fifth-round pick (150th overall) by the Chicago Bears in 2016. In 64 career games (52 starts), Howard has gained 3,955 yards on 932 carries for a 4.2 yards-per-carry average. He’s had 634 yards receiving on 83 catches.

He has 36 touchdowns (34 rushing), 25 (24 rushing) of which came with the Bears over his first three NFL seasons. He joined the Eagles for the 2019 season.

Prior to last season, he signed with Miami but was waived after having played five games. He then re-joined the Eagles, signed to the practice squad in November before playing two games (seven carries for 27 yards).
