  • Michel signed a contract with the Dolphins on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The veteran running back will bring depth to a backfield that already includes Chase Edmonds, Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed. Michel appeared in 17 games a season ago with the Rams, rushing for 845 yards and four scores while hauling in 21 passes for 128 yards and one touchdown.

  • Michel, who visited the Dolphins on Wednesday, is also in line to visit the Saints, Cameron DaSilva of USA Today reports. The chances of Michel returning to the Rams and rejoining a backfield that also includes Cam Akers and Darrell Henderson seemingly took a hit with the team's fifth-round selection of Kyren Williams in the recent NFL Draft. This past season, Michel carried 208 times for 845 yards and four TDs while adding 21 catches for a 128 yards a receiving score, but the volume he logged in 2021 was largely the result of Akers missing most of the season with an Achilles' injury. If Michel signs with either Miami or New Orleans, he'd likely work in a complementary role, with the Dolphins already rostering Chase Edmonds and Raheem Mostert and the Saints' rushing attack still led by Alvin Kamara.

  • Michel had two carries for two yards in the Rams' 23-20 win Sunday over the Bengals in Super Bowl LVI. Michel saw only seven snaps, as Darrell Henderson, who was returning from a knee injury, leaped past him on the running back depth chart. Michel spent the final weeks of the regular season as the Rams' lead back, with Cam Akers missing the entire regular season due to a torn Achilles and Henderson dealing with an MCL sprain. The extra work down the stretch helped him compile 845 yards and four touchdowns on 208 carries along with 21 receptions on 33 targets for 128 yards and another touchdown. The Patriots declined the fifth-year option on Michel's rookie contract before trading him to the Rams in August, so he'll be a free agent this offseason. With Akers and Henderson already under contract for 2022, there's a good chance Michel will be looking for a new home once free agency opens in March.

  • Michel rushed 10 times for 16 yards and brought in one of two targets for minus-4 yards during the Rams' 20-17 win over the 49ers in their NFC Championship Game matchup Sunday. Michel carried just three times fewer than backfield mate Cam Akers, but he gained 32 less yards as well while averaging just 1.6 per carry. The fourth-year veteran saw a bit of a bump in workload due to Akers' in-game shoulder injury, but the latter was able to return to the contest and appears to be okay moving forward. That likely equates to another relatively modest complementary role for Michel in the Super Bowl LVI matchup against the Bengals on Sunday, Feb. 13, but his prior experience playing for the Lombardi Trophy while with the Patriots potentially could earn him some decent volume in the contest.

  • Michel rushed once for four yards and caught two passes for minus-4 yards during Sunday's 30-27 win over Tampa Bay. Michel was officially leapfrogged by Cam Akers on Sunday. Akers out-snapped Michel, 58-14, and had 23 more rushing attempts. However, Akers also lost two fumbles, and the second one was with just 2:33 left in regulation. Michel only lost a single fumble all season, so it could be worthwhile to monitor what head coach Sean McVay says about the backfield leading into next week's game against the 49ers.
