The Packers reportedly re-signed Michael who they first acquired in the 2016 National Football League season after former starter Eddie Lacy got injured. Michael originally entered the National Football League as a second-round pick of the Seahawks in 2013 and has had two stints in Seattle as well as time in Dallas and Washington. The 26-year-old had 583 yards and seven touchdowns on 148 carries last season for the Seattle Seahawks and Packers.

This will be Michael's fifth season in the NFL.

White Sox Sign Tim Anderson to Record Deal
The White Sox are discussing a multi-year contract extension with shortstop Tim Anderson , according to's Scott Merkin. Anderson wouldn't have been arbitration eligible until at least 2020, and he wasn't scheduled to hit free agency before 2023.

The Packers are expected to add to that group in the draft, as well as signing an undrafted free agent or two to compete for a roster spot. He was with them until they made a decision to waive him last season, which at that time was surprising since he led the team in rushing yards. Last season, he was overshadowed by Montgomery.

Michael was acquired by the Packers midway through the 2016 season. When the dust settled, Montgomery, Michael and Ripkowski emerged as Green Bay's top three backfield options. 6 regular season games and all three playoff matchups.
