Dallas Cowboys trade for Seahawks running back Christine Michael

The Dallas Cowboys running back position has been one of the more intriguing stories of the NFL off-season.

As we head in to the 2015 campaign, the Cowboys don't really have a sure-fire number one running back in place to replace the departed DeMarco Murray, who joined the Philadelphia Eagles after his incredible 2014.

Neither Joseph Randle nor Darren McFadden have really staked their claim to being a bell-cow back, so the Cowboys have decided to bring in someone else to challenge for the job.

According to a report from ESPN's NFL insider Adam Schefter, the Cowboys have agreed to send a conditional draft pick to the Seattle Seahawks in return for running back Christine Michael.

The move makes sense for both teams because the Cowboys need running back help and the Seahawks added veteran Fred Jackson late last week after he was cut by the Bills.

A second-round pick in 2013, Michael was never more than a part-time contributor for the Seahawks and would have been third choice this year. He played in 14 games over the last two seasons, carrying the ball 52 times at an average of 4.9 yards per carry.

The Cowboys may be regretting the move right now after long-time trade target Monte Ball was just released by the Denver Broncos.
