In late August, the former All American was expected to sign with the Cincinnati Bengals but just days after he was released by the Buffalo Bills.

Howard last year finished 60th among all tight ends in the NFL last season with 14 receptions, 135 yards and one touchdown. The announcement of the signing was made just days after fellow Texans tight end, Teagan Quitoriano, was placed on short term injury reserve.

With only two healthy tight ends on the Texans 53-man roster, the former first round draft pick has already become the favorite to win the starting job in Houston.
