Good morning, GGN! The Jets added a veteran running back/receiver/returner in Ty Montgomery. Unless you’re into International Pathways foreign players signings, Ty Montgomery is what qualifies as exciting news in Jets land these days as we remain in a holding pattern leading up to the NFL draft, now less than two weeks away. The signing of Montgomery may drive the final nail into the coffin for Bilal Powell’s Jets career. If so, it was a fine run. I only wish we had seen a little more of him over the years. Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon also have to be a bit disconcerted, as they are now buried on the Jets depth chart at running back, likely to see significant snaps only in the event of injuries to one or more of the backs at the top of the rotation.
