Alabama fans know OJ Howard very well. He’s best known for his role as a dynamic tight end for the Crimson Tide from 2013-2016.

In his career at the Capstone, he caught more than 100 passes for around 1700 total yards. He has also honed his skills as a blocker at the next-level, adding to his value.

During Thursday Night’s contest between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles, OJ Howard caught his first TD pass on the year and his 14th in his career.

Since arriving in the NFL in 2017, Howard has amassed 1,653 yards on 109 total catches.

The TD catch came on an “H”-smash route at the goal line.
