IRVING (105.3 The Fan) – The Cowboys have traded a conditional pick to the Seahawks for running back Christine Michael, 105.3 The Fan has learned, an alteration in the team’s view of the former Texas A&M star that may hint at other concerns in the Dallas running back stable.

Dallas has Joe Randle as its lead back. But his exhibition of knuckle-headed behavior remains a concern. He’s backed up by Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar, so Michael begins as the No. 4 runner on the depth chart, but …

He’s a former second-round pick, and a power back. So the credentials are there — even with some of his own irresponsible behavior, which is among the reasons Seattle is dumping him (clearing the way for the Seahawks to add veteran running back Fred Jackson).
