Kenyan Drake is a good football player but the Miami Dolphins likely don’t view him as a long-term solution at the running back position. Drake is due for a new contract next year and the Dolphins are not going to sign him to an extension.
On Saturday, the Houston Texans appear to have lost starting running back Lamar Miller for the year to what is suspected to be an ACL injury. If this proves accurate, the Dolphins should call about Drake.
Miami needs to create roster space for their youth. At RB they want to keep Myles Gaskin, Patrick Laird, and Mark Walton, to go with Kalen Ballage but Drake is another body that would take a roster spot away from one of those players that the Dolphins seem to be high on.
