Christine Michael Returns To Seahawks

Dec 16, 2015 8:27 PM

Christine Michael has returned to the Seattle Seahawks, signing with the team on Wednesday.

Michael was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in August and carried 15 times for 51 yards before he was released.

Michael has a chance to contribute with Thomas Rawls out for the season.

"He's been with us for a long time, so he does have a lot of background," Pete Carroll said. "That doesn't mean he's going to be the featured guy or starter or anything like that. He's just coming in here and trying to help us out, and we'll see how that works out. But it is good to be able to pull somebody in that has that kind of background."

Mike Daniels Signs Four-Year, $42M Extension With Packers

Dec 14, 2015 1:00 PM

Mike Daniels has signed a four-year, $42 million extension with the Green Bay Packers.

The deal includes a $12 million signing bonus.

Daniels was a fourth round pick and has been one of the NFL's best defensive ends in 2015. Daniels is playing the run better than any 3-4 defensive end in the NFL, with only J.J. Watt coming close.

The deal was likely paved by Corey Liuget's five-year, $51.25 million summer extension with the Chargers, though Daniels has outplayed Liuget significantly this season.

Terrelle Pryor will sign with the Cleveland Browns.

Pryor spent all summer with the Browns but received just 17 snaps during the preseason.
