Aaron Wilson has the full trade details. The Rams are trading a 2022 sixth-round pick and a 2023 fourth-round pick to the Patriots for Michel. 

This trade makes a good deal of sense for both sides, as the Rams get another running back to complement Darrell Henderson after losing Cam Akers for the year, while the Patriots flip a player from a position of strength into a draft pick. 

Michel, 26, is a former first-round pick of the Patriots back in 2018. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $9,626,694 contract that includes a $5,081,232 signing bonus.

After New England declined Michel’s fifth-year option, he will be an unrestricted free agent in 2022. 

In 2020, Michel appeared in nine games for the Patriots and rushed for 449 yards on 79 carries (5.7 YPC) to go along with seven receptions for 114 yards receiving and two total touchdowns.
