Michel, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Massachusetts back in 2016. He later signed on with the Vikings, but was cut loose at the start of the 2016 season.

From there, Michel agreed to a contract with the Calgary Stampeders for the 2017 season and has spent the past two years in the CFL.

During his time with the Stampeders, Michel caught 72 passes for 1,215 yards receiving and eight touchdowns over the course of two seasons and 24 games.
