NFL: Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

If Adam Gase were still the head coach of the Miami Dolphins, Kenyan Drake would probably be on a different team now. Drake was so frustrated last season that he contemplated asking for a trade during the offseason. Drake is a big play waiting to happen and for whatever reason, Gase didn’t use him much. Brian Flores and Chad O’Shea have yet to say if Drake will be the workhorse in the backfield. If Drake practices hard and can pick up the system, I don’t see any reason why Drake will see a lot more time than he did under Gase last season.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
