Irvin: Marshall Faulk Says RB Christine Michael Could Start

The Cowboys traded for running back Christine Michael a week before the opener

Michael Irvin admittedly doesn’t know all that much about newest Cowboys running back Christine Michael. But a coworker of his at NFL Network, Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk, believes the team got a potential difference maker--maybe even a starter--in the former Seahawk.

Irvin was asked about Michael during an appearance on 105.3-FM’s G-Bag Nation this week.

"I don't know enough about him but Marshall told me, he said, 'Hey man, just listen. I'm going to say it, it's my job. I'll tell the truth. He'll be starting in a couple weeks. That boy is bad,’” Irvin said, per the Dallas Morning News. “He said, 'Michael, that boy is bad. I'm telling you right now.' He said, 'Man, he was hiding up there.

“They found something.' He said he's got dog in him. He's got that dog in him. I said, 'He got that dog in him?' He said, 'Man, he's got real dog in him. He got some real dog in him.'”

The Cowboys traded a conditional 7th round pick to the Seahawks in exchange for Michael a week before the team’s season opener. He didn’t play against the Giants.
