Looks like he's itching for that much-needed break to be over!
But it looks like he's ready and willing for the coach to put him back in! Unfortunately, this year's season JUST started, so it looks like he has a while to wait.
Not to mention, he has to get picked to play again.
However, the 25-year-old feels confident he can show the coaches he's worth signing — and totally focused on football — and has already fired his publicist and agent!
But since next season is still a ways off, Michael says, in the meantime, he's trying his hand at sportscasting, explaining:
"It's been a roller coaster. I've been trying to figure out what's next in my life. I've just come to a conclusion, as I take this break from football, I want to focus on my media training."
Do U think Michael will make the team in 2016? SOUND OFF in the comments!

This is too bad, but we hope he gets the help he needs!
The 25-year-old announced the news on Twitter on Friday afternoon, writing a series of tweets explaining his decision (below):
Ugh. Today is basically the WORST day ever for couples.
While there's no exact reason for the split, sources close to the couple say they've apparently been on the rocks for the MONTHS despite tons of lovey dovey pics on Instagram that would suggest otherwise!
The couple first gained attention when they shared a smooch for the whole world to see after Michael became the first openly gay player to be drafted into the league!
The timing is a bit odd as Michael was noticeably absent from his new CFL team's training camp for almost a month, saying he had to leave for personal reasons!
Sounds like we finally know why!

We hope he comes back!
After Sam asked special permission so that he could leave training camp and return home last week, Jim Popp, the Alouettes' general manager said of the decision:
Our thoughts are with Michael Sam!
The football star — and first openly gay player in both the NFL and the Canadian Football League — has left his team in Montreal for "personal reasons," with nobody giving any more comment about the situation.
The Montreal Alouettes released a statement regarding his departure:
Friday morning, news broke that Sam had signed with the Montreal Alouettes, a professional team in the Canadian Football League. Yay!!!
Sam said of the signing:
"I am very excited and proud to join the Montreal Alouettes and want to thank team Owner Robert Wetenhall, General Manager Jim Popp and Head Coach Tom Higgins for this opportunity. I cannot wait to put on the pads, get back on the field and work hard each and every day with my teammates to bring a Grey Cup to the great fans here in Montreal."
The former Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Year while in college at the University of Missouri will be a big boost to the team in Montreal, according to Popp:
The competition on Dancing With The Stars has only been getting tougher, which means it's time for some hard eliminations.
This week, the celebs and their partners danced to a song that was representative of their most memorable year ever! Since there's a wide range of people on the show, from entertainers to athletes, the songs were all unique, and amazing!
But let's get the hard part out of the way and reveal who didn't make the cut this week…
