It doesn’t seem like the Miami fire sale is over just yet. With news that the team might be interested in moving on from running back Kenyan Drake, who is in the last year of his rookie contract, the Dolphins are getting rid of the last bit of talent left on the team’s roster.
Miami’s loss should be Los Angeles’ gain as the Rams should heavily consider acquiring the fourth year running back. With Gurley’s reduced touches and production seeming to be permanent, the Rams could use Drake to pick up Gurley’s slack.
The Rams have two other capable backs on their roster meaning they shouldn’t give up a lot to get Drake but having another staring caliber back behind Gurley would not hurt.
The Rams are averaging 40 rushing yards fewer per game compared to last season. Malcolm Brown has done a fine job in his backup role and Darrell Henderson Jr. just came onto the scene this past week, but the Rams have the opportunity to get a player back that could give them that explosion once again.
