After weeks of speculation and rumors flying all over the place, running back Kenyan Drake finally has a new place to call home.

On Monday morning, NFL insider Adam Schefter was first to report that the Miami Dolphins are sending the 25-year-old back to the Arizona Cardinals. Yup, a new offensive weapon for Kliff Kingsbury and rookie signal-caller Kyler Murray.

A conditional 2020 draft pick -- a sixth-rounder that could potentially become a fifth -- reportedly heads back to Miami.

It really seemed like it was only a matter of time before Drake was shipped out of Miami. He didn't travel with the team to Pittsburgh for Monday's clash with the Steelers, all but sealing his fate.

While he's been held to 47 carries for 174 yards this year, teams had reportedly been knocking on Miami's door for weeks now trying to land the former Alabama playmaker.

The Cardinals sure could use him, as David Johnson missed Sunday's game due to ankle and back injuries, while No. 2 RB Chase Edmonds was forced out of action early on.

Look for Drake to potentially have a major role in the team's offense come Thursday night against San Francisco. They didn't bring him in to ride the pine; his number will be called early on in Arizona.
