Twitter users have spoken about Howell’s eating habits.

Howell will likely enter training camp as a replacement for Carson Wentz, who Washington acquired in a trade to the Indianapolis Colts in the offseason.

The North Carolina star was the team’s starting quarterback for three seasons. He had 10,283 passing yards and 92 touchdowns over the three years.
