Drake, who was traded at the midway point of last season rushed for 643 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games with the Cardinals. During that eight game stretch Drake had also posted one of the best games of his career against the Super Bowl runner up San Francisco 49ers.
Against the Niners, Drake rushed for 110 yards and a touchdown on just 15 carries, while also catching four passes for 52 yards.
Arizona has already had a busy offseason as they kicked things off tagging Drake and followed up with trading former starting running back David Johnson to the Houston Texans in exchange for All-Pro wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
