Miami Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard reported to training camp on Tuesday, ending his offseason holdout.

The All-Pro would have had to pay a $50,000 fine for each day he didn't attend.

"We're excited to work with X and all the players that are here," head coach Brian Flores said, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

Flores declined to answer whether the Dolphins will give Howard a bump in pay.

"Those conversations are going to be internal, confidential," he said.

Howard signed a five-year, $75.25-million extension with Miami in 2019 but indicated he thought he deserved to be paid more after teammate Byron Jones inked a five-year, $82.5-million deal last year.

The two-time Pro Bowler skipped the Dolphins' offseason activities, including mandatory minicamp, in an effort to get his contract restructured.

Several teams have reportedly expressed interest in trading for Howard.

The Baylor product led the NFL with 10 interceptions and 20 passes defended last season.
