Seahawks sign second-round pick Christine Michael
By Brady Henderson
RENTON – The Seahawks have signed second-round pick Christine Michael to a multi-year contract, the team announced before the start of Monday’s organized team activity.
Michael, chosen with the 62nd overall selection, becomes the ninth of Seattle’s 11 draft picks to sign with the team. Cornerback Tharold Simon and tackle Michael Bowie remain un-signed.
Michael was limited during Monday’s OTA because of a tight hamstring, coach Pete Carroll said.
The team also signed tight end Darren Fells to a multi-year contract and released long snapper Adam Steiner to clear a spot on the 90-man roster. Fells, signed in March and released earlier this month, participated in the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp on a tryout basis. Steiner was claimed off waivers last week.
