The deal has a two-year term of $ 11 million and is valued at up to $ 14.5 million, including a guaranteed $ 11 million, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Drake, who turned 27 in January, returned to the Cardinals in 2020 on a one-year transitional tendering for $ 8.4 million after leaving the Miami Dolphins Middle of the 2019 season.
In his first full year with the Cardinals, Drake ran 955 yards and 10 touchdowns while catching 25 passes for 137 yards. He missed a game against Miami, which likely prevented him from reaching 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career.
But last season was his third in a row with 1,000 all-purpose yards, which proves he’s one of the most versatile running backs in the league.
Drake, selected by the Dolphins in the third round in the 2016 draft, has completed 3,130 yards and 27 touchdowns in his career and made 169 catches for 1,244 yards and 6 touchdowns in his career.
