Seahawks give rookie Christine Michael some first-team snaps

According to the Seattle Times, the Seahawks gave rookie running back Christine Michael some first-team snaps during last week’s workouts.

Christine Michael got a lot of work with the ones and had another solid day, showing off his pass-catching skills throughout. He also shows a good ability to quickly turn and get upfield after making the catch.

With Marshawn Lynch only getting older, don’t be surprised if Michael becomes the Seahawks starter within the next year or two.  I believe he’ll be phased in over the next few years.
