One of the most decorated recruits signed by Texas A&M in recent memory, former Aggies running back Christine Michael was perhaps never as good during his time in College Station than he was as a freshman in 2009. The Big 12 — yes, it’s been that long — Offensive Freshman of the Year, Michael put up 910 yards from scrimmage in that debut campaign and looked like a breakout star.
Injuries quickly took their toll, however. While Michael remained productive when he was on the field, he was injured often enough that he never quite lived up to those early expectations. Still, his injuries didn’t stop the Seattle Seahawks from selecting him in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft. Michael earned a Super Bowl ring in his rookie season.
Michael spent most of the next four seasons with the Seahawks before moving to the Dallas Cowboys. He returned to Seattle early last season, where he had arguably the most productive stretch of his career with 469 yards and 6 touchdowns.
However, he ended the season with the Green Bay Packers, with whom he chose to re-sign on Wednesday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Field Yates.

The former Texas A&M star will once again have an opportunity for significant playing time behind incumbent starter Ty Montgomery.
