Howard brought the curtain down on his glorious decade-long stay at Everton at the conclusion of the 2015/16 Premier League season and he had sealed a move back to the United States by signing a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Rapids in March.
The Rapids formally unveiled Howard at Dick's Sporting Goods Park on Tuesday afternoon and the 37-year-old could make his debut for the club during the upcoming MLS encounter with Portland Timbers on Monday.
Howard said: “I'm going to be here for three-and-a-half years and it's going to be a good journey.
“I'm excited about settling in, allowing Denver to be my home, and becoming a part of the culture, the community, not just the team."
