NEWARK -- Christine Michael is third on the Seahawks' depth chart at running back behind Marshawn Lynch and Robert Turbin.

But he knew how to stand out at Super Bowl Media Day at the Prudential Center on Tuesday despite not having his name above him at his own designated seating area.

Michael, in his first NFL season, wore a gold-and-diamond chain around his neck that rivaled sausage in an Italian deli here in New Jersey.

"Yeah, it's real," Michael said. "This thing costs a house and a home."

Presumably, those accompanying diamond earrings that were bigger than earbud headphones were worth a pool and a pool house.
