Buffalo Bills: 5 running backs to target in free agency this offseason
After rushing for over 1,000 yards in each of his first two seasons in the league, Howard struggled a bit in his final season with the Chicago Bears. The Bears then traded Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles and this past season ran for 525 rushing yards and six touchdowns. Bills fans are sure to remember his best game this past year because it came against Buffalo when he ran for 96 yards and adding a touchdown in the process.
At only 25 years of age, Howard could be a player that the Bills add that could be the player to pair with Singletary for the next few seasons. He has shown an ability to be effective as the leading rusher in an offense but also can be effective with fewer touches in running back committee.
Unlike Peterson, Jordan Howard is a back that can contribute running the ball but also an ability to be a threat out of the backfield with 20 or more receptions in three of his four seasons in the league. This dual threat can keep opposing defenses guessing when he comes in the game for the Buffalo Bills as a threat running the ball or as a pass catcher.
