The Green Bay Packers are expected to make Ty Montgomery their full-time running back during the 2017 season. Montgomery was their emergency back during the 2016 season when Eddie Lacy and James Starks went down with injuries.
But they are expected to add at least one veteran running back to back him up.
Lacy is not expected to be back with the team. Lacy and head coach Mike McCarthy has had problems, as McCarthy benched him several times due to weight problems.
Also, the Packers already released Starks.
Jamaal Charles, who was recently released by the Kansas City Chiefs, would be a perfect fit for the Packers. Charles was part of the West Coast offense the past several seasons under head coach Andy Reid.
The Packers run a similar offense under McCarthy.
Last season, a former Chiefs running back was acquired by McCarthy in-season with a trade. But Knile Davis was released shortly after being acquired because he could not grasp the offense. Charles, coming in during the off-season, should be able to figure it out.
The 30-year-old has spent his entire nine-year career with the Chiefs. He has played in a 103 games, including 69 starts, with the team.
He only played in three games during the 2016 season, but did not start any of those games. He had 12 carries for 40 yards and a touchdown.
In his career, he had 7,260 yards with 43 touchdowns.
