Ex-Cowboy Christine Michael Re-Signs with Seahawks

Michael rushed for 51 yards in five games with the Cowboys in 2015

One time Dallas Cowboys running back Christine Michael is going back to Seattle, again.

The Seattle Seahawks announced Thursday that they’ve re-signed Michael, though the terms are unknown to this point.

The Cowboys traded for Michael the week before the regular season opener last year to shore up the backfield, sending a conditional seventh round pick to Seattle.

All told, Michael appeared in five games for the Cowboys, and rushed for 51 yards. He was waived in November to make room for another Seahawks backup, Robert Turbin. Michael spent a few weeks on the Redskins’ practice squad before being released and returning to Seattle, where he finished out the year.

It has been a challenge,” Michael told the Seahawks official website late in the 2015 season. “It has been a humbling experience, but I’m back in Seattle, just focusing on that and being the best me I can be.

“Going to Dallas, it’s close to home, so I had a lot of emotions—happy to go home, sad I was leaving (Seattle). Then going to the Redskins practice squad, I learned a lot, it was a humbling experience. It’s a blessing to be on any team, but it did humble me some. I’m happy for the opportunity I got with Dallas and the Redskins and back in Seattle.”
