Although he still experienced fumbling issues, the team chose to stick with him and worked with him from scratch. During training, he was able to improve and got on to play for the team when the season started.
Howard later on was able to play with the team but only played for three seasons, officially leaving his professional career in 2000. Despite retiring early, his few years in the NFL still helped with his career and overall wealth.
