The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to rebound after a 2021 campaign where they finished 8-8. Making a splash by signing top running back Kenyan Drake in free agency was one move Jon Gruden and company hope will make a difference as this team looks to return to the playoffs.

Drake is settling in with his new team at early Raiders workouts, and he already has a ton of praise for quarterback Derek Carr.

Drake not only raved about Carr's arm strength, but he also highlighted his leadership qualities. The running back even revealed that Carr hosted some of his new teammates at a cookout during the offseason to get to know them.

Obviously Drake wants to get off on the right foot with his new QB, and throwing him some compliments is a great way to do that. But it's clear the RB is impressed by Carr on and off the field so far.

Drake's early observations as a new arrival should excite Raiders fans. An offseason of trade speculation surrounding Carr and Las Vegas hasn't had any impact on him at all as he looks to help this team break its postseason drought.
