Some guys are better at getting jobs than doing the job itself.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, the Colts have signed veteran running back Christine Michael.

The move reunites him with fellow former Seahawks runner Robert Turbin, as the Colts collect options behind aging starter Frank Gore.

Michael was last with the Packers, and also has two stints in Seattle on either side of trips to Dallas and Washington.

In five seasons, he has 1,080 rushing yards, topping out with the 469 he gained in nine games with the Seahawks last year.

    Apparently he’s got that Trent Richardson-esque knack of duping teams into thinking he doesn’t suck.

    The Packers literally have no viable running backs on their roster right now, so if they didn’t want him, I’m not sure what he can do anywhere else.

    “Some guys are better at getting jobs than doing the job itself.”

    Some teams are better at hiring those guys than they are drafting for the position.

    To be fair, he had 583 yds last season, just under 4yds a carry and 7 tds.

    Not terrible but this guy is not good. Lots of physical talent but I don’t think he quite gets it.

    You must not understand what the word literally means. We literally have four running backs. One literally managed a 5.9 yard average last year. You literally just wanted to take a shot at the pack didn’t you.

    The Colt’s must have had a glaring need for someone who runs the wrong play, and throws “Look Out” blocks in pass protection.

    Maybe this is the year he’ll put it all together.

    Playing for Green Bay always leads to further opportunities.

    Look no further than Eddie Lacy!

    You must not understand what viable means. You have a wide receiver who got 77 carries last year and three rookies drafted in the fourth round or later. Funny that the Packers had a guy who averaged 5.9 yards a carry but only once felt comfortable enough to give him the ball more than 11 times in a game.

    Another prediction, another fail

    Put it on the pile, I guess.
