Colts re-sign RB Christine Michael

By Rachel Wold

The Indianapolis Colts must figure the second time is a charm because they just re-signed running back Christine Michael.

For those who need a little catching up, Michael spent a brief stint with the Colts last offseason until he became injured and landed on IR.

Prior to his gig in Indianapolis that was cut short, Michael last played a split season for the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers in 2016. He finished that year with a total of 583 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns.

Seattle is also where Michael began his career as a second-round pick from 2013. Though he also played a brief five games with the Dallas Cowboys in 2015.

The Colts must feel as if Michael will be a contributor to an offense that let running back Frank Gore walk in free agency. As it stands, second-year running back Marlon Mack is the No. 1 guy.

Health here for Michael is clearly a concern that the Colts seem willing to look past. He is just 27-years-old, which is at least a plus.
