With Kerryon Johnson missing at least the next eight weeks with a knee injury, the Detroit Lions have a big decision to make. Do they roll with what they already have on the roster? Do they sign a free agent RB? Or, do they make a trade to bring in a running back to fill in for Johnson?

According to a report, the Lions are one of two teams who have shown interest in Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake, but the Dolphins asking price up to this point has been too high.

From Miami Herald:

The Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions are among several teams that have shown some level of interest in running back Kenyan Drake, according to two people briefed on the situation.

But no team — as of Friday morning — had been willing to meet the Miami Dolphins’ asking price.

One NFL person said his understanding is that the Dolphins want at least a fourth-round pick for Drake.

Another source said even though multiple teams have inquired about Drake, the offers haven’t been attractive. One team discussed giving the Dolphins a seventh-round 2020 pick that could become a sixth if certain thresholds are met. Another was interested in dealing a late-round 2021 pick. But the Dolphins want more than that.

The NFL trade deadline on Tuesday, Oct. 29, so there is still time for the Dolphins to come down on their asking price, or for the Lions to offer more than they have been for Drake.
