After Dallas signed Washington Redskins practice squad running back Trey Williams earlier this month, Washington Redskins returned the favor, signing former Cowboys RB Christine Michael to their practice squad.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport first reported the news.
@RapSheet: The #Redskins have signed former #Cowboys RB Christine Michael to their practice squad.
Washington Redskins released RB Mack Brown from their practice squad.
Michael was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Dallas Cowboys shortly before the start of the 2015 season following the emergence of rookie Thomas Rawls, but the 25-year-old’s stint in Texas wasn’t particularly fruitful.
In five appearances with the Cowboys, Michael managed 51 yards on 15 carries. However, if you remove a season-long run of 13 yards from the equation, Michael averaged just over 2.7 yards on all other carries with Dallas.
