Las Vegas Raiders to release running back Kenyan Drake

The Las Vegas Raiders plan to release running back Kenyan Drake. The 28-year-old Drake was drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL draft out of Alabama by the Dolphins, but was traded to the Cardinals in October 2019. Drake had a career-high 1,162 yards from scrimmage with the Dolphins and Cardinals in 14 games played that season.

In 2020, Drake tallied 1,092 yards from scrimmage in 15 appearances for Arizona, but he signed with the Raiders in ’21 where he only started in two of his 12 appearances. Drake logged 545 yards from scrimmage and three total touchdowns.
