Draft Scout Jaye Howard News
12/18/14 - DE Jaye Howard did not practice on Thursday and was held out of the workout because he was suffering from flu-like symptoms. Howard also did not practice on Wednesday.
09/02/13 - DT Jaye Howard was assigned on waivers from the Seahawks to the Chiefs Sunday.
09/01/13 - DT Jaye Howard was waived by the Seahawks Saturday.
08/31/13 - DL Jaye Howard, a fourth-round pick in the 2012 draft, was released Saturday by the Seattle Seahawks after just one season, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
The 6-3, 301-pound Howard played just two games with Seattle and never really made the kind of impact that Seahawks coaches had hoped for.
Howard is eligible for waivers, which means another team can pick up the now former Seahawks player.
07/31/13 - DL Jaye Howard was one of the few disappointments from the 2012 draft for the Seahawks.
The University of Florida product made the final roster, but was active for only two games last season, playing a total of 22 defensive plays.
But Howard used his underwhelming performance in 2012 as motivation, staying in Seattle during the offseason to prepare for his second NFL season.
"I made up my mind after the playoff game against the Falcons that I wasn't going anywhere," Howard said. "I've got to play next year. I put that in my mind. And every day I worked out, I thought about not playing, and not being active. So I was like, 'I'm going to be active this year.'"
The results have been good so far for Howard. He put on 15 pounds of muscle, and at 6-3 is up to 305 pounds. And he's learning a new position, as defensive coordinator Dan Quinn has Howard backing up Red Bryant at strong-side defensive end, along with competing for the starting defensive tackle job left open by the departure of Alan Branch in free agency.
"I've been watching Big Red's film every day, and I'm trying to play like him," Howard said. "He's physical at the point of attack, and I'm just trying to add that to my game. I've become more of student of the game."
