Michel was actually having a surprisingly impressive camp with the Patriots, but before we could figure out exactly how he'd factor into the running back mix in New England, he was shipped off to the Rams. He'll almost certainly be just a veteran depth piece for Darrell Henderson, but he could make an impact if Henderson needs to miss time (and he is currently battling a thumb injury). Michel may have only had 79 carries last year, but he did average a massive 5.7 yards per carry on them. Michel remains only an insurance policy back for now, unless we find out that Henderson needs to miss significant time.
