Sony Michel spent last season with the Rams and he may be back in Los Angeles this year.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Michel is set to meet with the Chargers on Wednesday.

Michel was released by the Dolphins as part of their cut to 53 players this week. Michel ran 208 times for 845 yards and four touchdowns for the Rams in the regular season last year and added 80 yards on 26 carries during the postseason.

The Chargers have Austin Ekeler at the top of their running back depth chart. Fourth-round pick Isaiah Spiller joins Joshua Kelley and Larry Rountree on the current roster, but Michel’s arrival would likely cost someone a job.

  1. Sony was a solid performer for the Patriots…..but was a huge reach as a 1st round pick. Another not-so-great 1st round pick by BB.

  2. I thought he was a good depth signing for the Dolphins; as he can catch and is a decent blocker especially for 3rd downs, but he literally looked mediocre in pre-season and this was a numbers game. He belongs in the NFL and will be signed, but this does not look good for him financially. He is definitely on sale.

  3. I was hoping the Rams would have kept him. He was a big help gaining yards running up the middle. That helped reduce the pass rush on Stafford. He’s also dependable. He isn’t as dynamic as Cam Aker or Darrel Henderson, but those two have had injury issues.
