Report: Dolphins looking to trade RB Kenyan Drake

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are apparently looking to take this whole tank thing to a new level.

Fresh off reports that Miami has granted second-year defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick permission to seek a trade, comes this note from NFL insider Jay Glazer indicating that the team has put starting running back Kenyan Drake on the trade block.

Still only 25 years old, some might figure that the Dolphins should hold on to Drake as a core piece for their rebuild.

That’s until we realize that Fitzpatrick is just 24 years old. Meanwhile, Miami also dealt 25-year-old franchise left tackle Laremy Tunsil ahead of Week 1.

A third-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2016, Drake put up a combined 1,895 total yards and 13 touchdowns while averaging 5.6 yards per touch in 2017 and 2018.
