Drake spent a season and a half with Arizona. During his time there he scored 18 touchdowns and racked up 1,598 rushing yards. His eight touchdowns in eight games with the Cardinals in 2019 was his career high, until he bested it in 2020.
In 15 games (13 starts), Drake scored 10 touchdowns and was 45 yards short of 1,000 on the 2020 season. His arrival in Las Vegas is somewhat of a surprise, given the Raiders already have Josh Jacobs, a breakout star.
