Dolphins' Drake won't travel for MNF, trade talks reportedly progressing


Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake will not be returning to the team in the 2020 season.

But the Detroit Lions and Tennessee Titans were also reportedly calling about Drake, and the Titans in particular are in the playoff hunt midway through the season, so it's interesting to say the least that a 3-4-1 team that's seemingly in rebuilding mode would trade for a player on the a year ago of his rookie contract.

The Dolphins also announced safety Reshad Jones, center Daniel Kilgore, defensive end Avery Moss and reserve offensive lineman Andrew Donnal also did not travel to Pittsburgh.

The Dolphins have held conversations with a handful of teams, one of which is reportedly the Detroit Lions, about moving scatback. Drake has 47 carries for 174 yards and 22 receptions for 174 yards in six games this season. The Dolphins are asking for a mid-round draft pick, ESPN reported.

Whether it's Drake or Walton the plan of attack doesn't change.

Without Drake, it will be second-year back Mark Walton powering the rushing attack.

Drake was initially drafted by the Dolphins for the 2016 season.
