The Seattle Seahawks have released running back Christine Michael. His release means that Thomas Rawls is close to coming back, as he could potentially even come back this week.
Rookie C.J. Prosise also has a factor in the Seahawks decision to release the veteran.
Michael quickly fell out of favor. He was the starter to begin the season, then the team didn’t seem to trust him.
He also fell out quickly in his first tenure with the team, too.
With the Seahawks, his career came full circle. He began his career with the Seahawks, then was traded to the Dallas Cowboys.
After being released by the Cowboys, he was signed to the Washington Redskins practice squad. He was released on Dec. 15, 2015. Four days later, he returned to the Seahawks.
The 26-year-old could be claimed off waivers, but his reputation could cause teams to pass on him.
Earlier in the day on Tuesday, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll did not mention Michael in his running back comments. Michael had five carries for 22 yards and a four-yard pass in the Seahawks win over the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football.
He didn’t see the field until the second half and had 11 snaps. This season in nine games, he had a 117 carries for 469 yards and six touchdowns.
He had one game where he had more than a 100 yards. Against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 25, he had 20 carries for a 106 yards and two touchdowns.
In the past two weeks, he had 10 carries for 23 yards and a touchdown.
