In corresponding moves, the team is releasing RB Jordan Wilkins and RB Nate McCrary from the practice squad and placing OT Ty Nsekhe on practice squad/injured reserve.

The following is an updated Browns’ practice squad list:

  • WR Jaelon Darden
  • LB Sam Kamara

  • DE Lonnie Phelps
  • LB Charlie Thomas
  • DE Isaiah Thomas
  • WR Austin Watkins

  • T Ty Nsekhe (injured)
  • DT Tommy Togiai

Drake, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2016. Miami traded him to the Cardinals before the 2019 deadline in return for a conditional sixth-round pick that could become a fifth-rounder. 

Drake finished the final year of his four-year, $3.5 million contract and made a base salary of $810,000 for the 2019 season. However, Arizona opted to transition tag Drake for the 2020 season. 

The Raiders signed Drake in free agency the following year to a two-year, $11 million contract that was worth up to $14.5 million. However, they released him ahead of the 2022 season. He caught on with the Ravens and finished out the year. 

The Colts signed Drake to a contract in August but cut him after just three weeks. He returned to the Ravens a few weeks ago but was cut loose again. He most recently worked out for the Browns a few days ago.

In 2023, Drake has appeared in two games for the Ravens and caught two passes for 31 yards and no touchdowns.
