NFL Practice Squad Updates: 11/19/15

Earlier today, Washington made an attention-grabbing move when they signed ex-Cowboys running back Christine Michael to the taxi squad.

Michael, who turned 25 last Monday, was acquired by the Cowboys from the Seahawks in a trade earlier this year, and had been expected to get an increased workload after Joseph Randle was demoted and then released. However, it was the veteran, Darren McFadden, who ended up taking many of those carries, prompting Dallas to waive Michael and take a flier on Robert Turbin this week. In five games with the Cowboys, Michael ran for just 51 yards on 15 attempts, adding a single reception for two yards.

Here are the rest of Thursday’s practice squad moves from around the NFL:

Baltimore Ravens

New England Patriots

New York Giants

New York Jets

Oakland Raiders

    Teams are taking advantage of the recent expanding of practice squad eligibility. Both Ross and Michael would’ve been ineligible prior to these adjustments, with their 39 and 19 career games, respectively. It’s good for teams to be able to try and further develop these players, because they may fall through the cracks otherwise.

      That’s a good point, and another sign that the NFL needs some sort of developmental league. Teams are still clearly invested in players like this, and it’s be great if they had a stage on which to practice their craft.
