The Chicago Bears traded Jordan Howard to the Philadelphia Eagles for a conditional 2020 sixth-round pick this offseason.

Howard had a career-low 20 catches last season, but the running back expects to be used more in the passing game going forward.

"I feel like they're allowing me to do more, show my game off more instead of just being one-dimensional like Chicago had me," Howard said.

Offensive coordinator Mike Groh said the team has "to keep throwing him balls" because he's been catching them in practice.
