The Saints will sign Merritt to a reserve/future contract Monday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Analysis: Merritt spent most of the 2021 campaign on the Dolphins' practice squad and was elevated to the active roster twice. He secured one of three targets for 13 yards and will now attempt to carve out a role with New Orleans during the offseason.

Howell (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's divisional matchup with the Rams, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.
Analysis: As expected, Howell will miss his second straight postseason game due to a hamstring injury. The 25-year-old hasn't played an offensive snap all season, so his absence will only impact the Rams' special-teams unit.

Tannehill completed 15 of 24 passes for 220 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Saturday's 19-16 divisional-round loss to the Bengals.
Analysis: Tannehill began the game in inauspicious fashion, throwing an interception on his first attempt. While things improved from there, he ended the game with another pick that set up the game-winning field goal for Cincinnati. Positively, Tannehill connected on several big plays with A.J. Brown that went for gains of 41,40 and 33 yards. However, that wasn't enough to overcome his mistakes, something that became far too common for Tannehill in 2021. After throwing only 13 interceptions across his first 28 games in Tennessee, he threw 17 across 18 contests in 2021. Even in the face of those struggles, Tannehill will almost certainly enter 2022 as the starting quarterback in Tennessee, as it would cost the team $57.4 million to move on from him.

Howell (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's divisional-round matchup with the Rams, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Howell didn't practice at all this week and will likely miss his second straight game due to the hamstring injury. The 25-year-old hasn't played an offensive snap all season, so his absence will only impact the Rams' special-teams unit.

Howell (hamstring) is inactive Monday against the Cardinals, Stu Jackson of the Rams' official site reports.
Analysis: Howell was unable to practice all week, so his inability to suit up Monday doesn't come as a surprise. The 25-year-old hasn't played an offensive snap all season, so his absence will only impact the Rams' special teams unit.
