Former Alabama TE signs with Las Vegas Raiders
Former Alabama TE O.J. Howard spent the 2022 NFL season with the Houston Texans.
But it seems the former Crimson Tide star’s tenure in Houston will end after only 1 year, as the 2017 first-round NFL Draft pick is officially on the move.
This week, the Las Vegas Raiders announced on Twitter that they were signing Howard as an unrestricted free agent. Contract details were not made available at the time:

He has appeared in a total of 74 NFL games thus far, recording 129 total catches for 1,882 yards and 17 touchdowns.
