That escalated quickly.
The Green Bay Packers brought free agent running back Christine Michael in for a visit today and they apparently signed him on the spot.
RB Christine Michael has re-signed with the Packers, per @FieldYates.
Michael also confirmed it on Instagram.
So there’s your running back depth if your a Packers fan. Ty Montgomery and Christine Michaels — the same two guys who filled the same two No. 1 and No. 2 positions last season.
When the Packers aren’t getting worse this offseason, at least they’re staying exactly the same.
Seriously, I will draw two conclusions here.
First, this likely eliminates any notion of signing someone like Adrian Peterson or Jamaal Charles… or at least it should. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised if both of those guys went unsigned, period. They’re both old for running backs and both are coming off knee injuries.
Second, I still expect the Packers to draft a running back (or even two). That could mean the well-traveled Michael will be traveling again.
For the time being, at least the Packers have a little depth at the position.
