Michel, 27, wound up going undrafted out of UMass 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 spent the past two years in the CFL.
Michel signed with the Eagles on a futures deal for the 2019 season but was waived coming out of the preseason and later signed to the practice squad in December of last year.
Philadelphia waived him in April and signed on with the Panthers in August. Carolina re-signed him to the practice squad after making him among their final roster cuts coming out of training camp.
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.
