After three-plus seasons as part of a running back committee with the Miami Dolphins, Kenyan Drake is primed to enter the 2020 campaign as the Arizona Cardinals' workhorse.

Drake, who was dealt to the Cardinals prior to last season's trade deadline, is hoping his hard work off the field translates to success in his first full year in Arizona.

"I feel like my ceiling is as high as I'll take it," Drake said. "I can't do anything but put the work in right now and take that into whenever the season starts.

"I have personal goals for myself ... I'm not looking for anything specific, I just want to help this team win as much as possible."

The 26-year-old enjoyed the best stretch of his career in the desert. He racked up 643 yards and eight touchdowns in eight games after taking the top role from David Johnson, who was traded to the Houston Texans this offseason.

The former third-round pick was scheduled to hit free agency in 2020, but Arizona placed its transition tag on him. While he had hoped for a long-term contract, Drake is also excited to earn a new deal in the future.

"I feel like anybody who plays this game is obviously looking for stability and a long-term contract," he said. "But we got the deal done to where we are currently, and everything else will take care of itself. All I can do is focus on the things I can control.

"I'm excited to put the work in now and let everything else handle itself at an appropriate time."
