One of the deadline's top options has a new home two days before the clock strikes 0:00. The Miami Dolphins have agreed to send talented running back Kenyan Drake to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional draft pick in the upcoming draft, Adam Schefter reports.

This is a bit of a surprise; while the Cardinals have been fun to watch this season, they're still obviously at least a year away from resembling a competitive football team, much less a championship contender. Most expected Drake to be moved to a team looking to win this year.

This could be indicative of David Johnson's injury and its severity as well. An interesting trade, and the Dolphins fire sale continues.
