Kenyan Drake said his agent and the Miami Dolphins have not had contract extension talks during the season and he’s prepared for anything, including a trade.
Earlier Thursday, NFL Network reported the Dolphins have engaged in trade talks and that Drake would welcome a change.
“Then I’m going to have to be where my feet are and put my best foot forward, wherever that may be,” Drake said of how he would respond to a deal. “I understand the business side of this. With that being the case. With wherever we are things may happen. People shift different teams. The thing is as I have played this game and seen it first-hand.
“Somebody can be here one day and not be here from a trade, from cuts, that’s just the way this league is. At the end of the day you have to make the most of it by being the player and being the man that I know I am. And every time my number is called 32 is going to be ready to step in and do battle. Wherever I’m at.”
Drake has averaged 4.6 yards per rush in his four-year career, though he’s at a career-low 3.7 yards this season, rushing behind an undermanned offensive line.
