The Green Bay Packers have traded running back Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens are dealing a 2020 seventh-round pick to the Packers.
Montgomery wanted to move on. The team also moved on.
He reportedly defied Mike McCarty’s orders at the end of the game on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. He had a costly fumble that cost the team.
The team gave him orders to take a knee on the kickoff. However, Montgomery decided not to listen and do his own thing.
Montgomery’s role has been limited with the team this season. Aaron Jones seems to be the big winner of this deal.
When the Packers did not have a running back last year due to injuries, Montgomery stepped up and said he would make the move to benefit the team. He made the position switch from wide receiver to running back in 2016.
The 25-year-old Jackson, Mississippi native had 26 carries for 105-yards and a touchdown for the Packers. He also had 15 receptions for 170-yards.
In his final game with the team, he had two carries for six-yards. He also had two receptions for a yard against the Rams.
Montgomery also had three kickoff returns for 68-yards. He had his second kickoff return fumble on the season that really angered his coaching staff and teammates.
His best rushing yardage game of the season came in Week 2 against the Minnesota Vikings. He had five carries for 31-yards.
Montgomery’s line rushing touchdown came against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 6.
His best receiving game of the season came against the Buffalo Bills in Week 4. He had two receptions for 56-yards.
