Howard tore his ACL last year and is still working his way back to health. Miami placed Howard on injured reserve last October.
Howard, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2016. He was in the final year of his four-year, $6,128,038 and set to make a base salary of $1,285,641 for the 2019 season when he agreed to a five-year, $76.5 million extension that includes $46 million guaranteed with Miami last offseason.
In 2019, Howard appeared in five games for the Dolphins and recorded 17 tackles, one interception, and four pass defenses.
Munson, 25, originally signed on with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of San Diego State back in 2017. He managed to make the Giants’ 53-man roster but was waived coming out of the preseason.
The Giants signed Munson to their practice squad soon after only to release him after a few weeks. He caught on with the Patriots and was re-signed to a futures deal for the 2019 season.
Miami signed Munson off of New England’s practice squad late in the 2019 season.
In 2019, Munson appeared in two games for the Dolphins and recorded seven tackles and no sacks.
