Raiders sign Kenyan Drake to a two-year deal

Former Cardinals RB Kenyan Drake is signing a two-year, $11 million deal that includes up $14.5 million with the Raiders, per source.

Update: Deal is 2 years, $11 million up to $14.5 million, including $11 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is certainly an odd signing given Josh Jacobs' presence on the Vegas roster, but teams like to have depth at running back and Drake fits the bill. He didn't look as explosive in 2020 after finishing the 2019 season on fire after the trade to Arizona. According to Ian Rapoport, "Jon Gruden sees Kenyan Drake as a jack-of-all-trades — a joker, as they say. He’ll figure prominently in the passing game." Drake's arrival will cap Jacobs' upside since he'll be more of a lead back instead of a bell cow.
