(Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals want to keep free agent Kenyan Drake and that the franchise tag is an option.

Analysis: There are a lot of moving parts in the Cardinals backfield. First, there's David Johnson and his massive contract that essentially makes him impossible to cut. Rapoport notes Arizona could trade Johnson and one of their own draft picks to get DJ off their salary cap. That would make some sense, especially if a team like the Dolphins who have a ton of cap space is interested. As for Drake, it sounds like the Cardinals will do everything they can to keep him. Re-signing him to a long-term deal seems most likely, but using a franchise tag on him is a possibility, too. If Drake has the backfield to himself, he'll flirt with RB1 numbers in 2020.
