    Saintswire Proposes Saints trade for Kenyan Drake

    https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2022...ra-suspension/

    The report proposes that the Saints trade for Raiders RB Kenyan Drake

    New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara is facing a suspension and the Saints could be looking for a fill-in.
    In the proposal, the Saints send a 2023 fifth-round pick to the Raiders for Drake.
    The trade saves the Raiders $2.75M in 2022. Drake has dead cap hits of $1.1M in 2022 and $4.4M in 2023.

    The Raiders appear to favor Ameer Abdullah over Kenyan Drake at this point.
    Abdullah will be a player to watch in the Viking game.
    Drake would cost a lot of dead cap if he were released. Trading him is the best way out, if they want him off the roster.

    Even if we only get a 6th or 7th, we gain approx 2.5 mil in cap space and a crucial roster spot in an already crowded rb room

    100% this, mike mayock was a stupid ass for signing drake for that much money when josh jacobs was on the team and making much less money

    ...then he compounds that by stretching 4.4 million outside of the length of Drake's deal.
