You can expect the Raiders to place him on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

Drake, 27, 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 can become a fifth-rounder. 

Drake just 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 to a two-year, $11 million contract that can be worth up to $14.5 million this offseason. 

In 2021, Drake appeared in 12 games for the Raiders and rushed for 254 yards on 63 carries (4.1 YPC) to go along with 29 receptions for 283 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.
