Running back Kenyan Drake—who was released by the Las Vegas Raiders earlier this off-season—will reportedly join the Baltimore Ravens after meeting with the team Tuesday, according to Josina Anderson of CBS Sports.

Drake played collegiately for the University of Alabama and subsequently played his first three professional seasons in Miami after being drafted by the Dolphins in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. In his final season with the Dolphins, Drake was a multi-purpose threat compiling 535 yards rushing and an additional 477 yards receiving. He was also responsible for nine total touchdowns.

Drake will now join his fourth professional team in his seventh season as a pro. He is just one season removed from a campaign in which he tallied 955 yards rushing and ten TDs on the ground for the Arizona Cardinals.

The Ravens running back room already features 2020 second-round pick, JK Dobbins. But as Dobbins continues to recover from a torn ACL he suffered last preseason, Drake will supplement a Baltimore rushing attack that has the potential to be one of the most fearsome in the league.
