Per Field Yates, running back Christine Michael will re-sign with the Green Bay Packers for the 2017 season.
Michael was acquired by the Packers midway through the 2016 season. In six games in a shared backfield with the likes of Ty Montgomery and others, Michael accumulated 114 yards and a touchdown on 31 attempts. He also caught two passes for 11 yards and returned a few kickoffs.
This will be Michael’s fifth season in the NFL. The first four were split between the Seahawks, Cowboys and Packers.
Michael’s signing begins to clear up one of the biggest position questions for the Packers going into next season – that of the running back depth chart.
