Bears Hosting Veteran DL Jaye Howard For Visit

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that the Bears are bringing in veteran DL Jaye Howard for a visit.

This is the first reported interest in Howard since he became available last week.

Howard, 28, is a former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2012. He lasted just over a year in Seattle before he was waived and later claimed off of waivers by the Chiefs.

Howard re-signed with Kansas City last year and was in the final year of his two-year, $10 million contract and set to make a base salary of $3.7 million for the 2017 season when the Chiefs recently cut him loose.

In 2016, Howard appeared in eight games for the Chiefs and recorded 24 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 55 interior defensive lineman out of 127 qualifying players.

We have him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
