We’re less than a week away from the first round of Summer Showcase events. The first being this Friday in Dallas, followed up by Houston on Saturday. We’ve seen a few names verified via their social media accounts, but today the XFL announced what may be the biggest name known to be attending so far.
The XFL announced via Twitter today that former 2nd round pick, Christine Michael would be attending the Summer Showcase in Dallas.
Michael was selected in the second round (62nd overall) by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2013 NFL Draft. During his first two seasons, Michael saw limited action as the third running back behind Pro-Bowl veteran Marshawn Lynch and backup Robert Turbin. The Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII over the Denver Broncos and made an appearance in Super Bowl XLIX against the New England Patriots during that time.
Michael was traded to the Dallas Cowboys on September 6, 2015, after the Seahawks signed veteran Fred Jackson. In exchange for Michael, the Seahawks received a conditional seventh-round draft pick.
From there he bounced around from the Cowboys to the Redskins, back to the Seahawks to Green Bay and finally with the Colts. All seeing limited playing time. It looks like Michal has his chance to get back on the field with the XFL, we’ll keep you posted as more information on the Summer Showcase surfaces.
