Michael entered the National Football League as a second-round pick (62nd overall) by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2013 draft. Michael played in only 9 games after the Packers claimed him off waivers from Seattle in November.

Among the 42 running backs to top 100 carries in 2016, Michael's -0.01 Rushing Net Expected Points per attempt was 20th in the group.

Lacy signed this offseason with the Seattle Seahawks.
