What is surprising is where he landed.
It’s a sixth-round pick that could become a fifth-round pick, Schefter reports.
The Cardinals confirmed the trade via Twitter.
Drake did not travel to Pittsburgh with the Dolphins for “Monday Night Football,” and given that he is healthy, it seemed a trade was imminent.
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 last year of his rookie contract.
The Cardinals and Johnson agreed to a three-year, $39 million extension last year. According to OvertheCap, $31.9 million is guaranteed for injury and $24.7 million is fully guaranteed.
The 73rd pick in the 2016 draft, Drake has 348 yards from scrimmage through six games (two starts). He had a career-best 1,012 yards from scrimmage and nine touchdowns last year for Miami.
