Michael was a draft pick for the Seahawks in 2013 out of Texas A&M. Dallas recently parted ways with former Aggies back Ben Malena.

In his two years in Seattle he has amassed only 52 carries, rushing for 254 yards.

However, Michael can provide the physicality that the Cowboys currently lack at the position. Coming out of college, he was described as a north and south runner with surprising speed.

The Cowboys added three potential talents in the 2015 draft, and now have added a second round talent at little to no cost. Welcome to the team, Christine.
