Jordan Howard vows to 'fix' issue with drops

Bears running back Jordan Howard has rushed for the third-most yards since he entered the league as a fifth-round pick back in 2016, but he's not often talked about as one of the game's best running backs due to his inability to contribute as a pass catcher. Drops have blemished an otherwise stellar start to his career. It's an issue he's well aware of as he prepares to operate within Matt Nagy's new offensive system, Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports reports.

Howard vowed to "fix" the problem, which he said has been an issue since high school.

"It started being a problem in high school, just not having my hands in the right position," he said, per the Chicago Tribune. "I didn't work on it that much in college because we didn't really throw to the backs that much. But I'm going to fix it."

Over the past two seasons, Howard has rushed for 2,435 yards and 15 touchdowns while averaging 4.6 yards per carry (and keep in mind, he did that despite playing in a offense designed for the middle ages), but he's struggled to contribute to the Bears' passing attack, catching 52 passes for 423 yards and one touchdown. According to Pro Football Focus, he's dropped 14 passes.
