The Seahawks have signed second-round pick Christine Michael, the club said Monday.
A running back from Texas A&M, Michael was the No. 62 overall pick and Seattle’s first selection in the 2013 draft. He was the fifth running back taken.
Michael (5-10, 220) rushed for 417 yards and 12 touchdowns on 88 carries as a senior for Texas A&M, but he tested very well at the Combine, and he could vie for carries with second-year pro Robert Turbin behind starter Marshawn Lynch.
According to the Seahawks, 9-of-11 draft picks have signed, with only cornerback Tharold Simon and offensive tackle Michael Bowie without deals.
In other roster moves Monday, the Seahawks released long-snapper Adam Steiner and re-signed tight end Darren Fells, a former professional basketball player.
