Following his most challenging season as a pro, WR/HB Ty Montgomery is set to turn the page with the Jets.
“It’s a fresh start. It’s a new opportunity and it’s a great opportunity,” said the 26-year-old Montgomery after signing a deal with his third NFL club. “I get to go out there and I speak for myself with my play. Finally. And I’m looking forward to that.”
Last season, the fifth-year veteran played seven games in Green Bay but was traded to Baltimore days after he lost a fourth-quarter fumble on a return during the Packers’ 29-27 loss to the LA Rams in Week 8. Combining to play 13 games with both clubs, Montgomery rushed for 188 yards and added 235 receiving yards on 25 receptions.
The 6’0”, 216-pound dual threat also has return experience, averaging 22.7 yards on 35 kick returns and has a career 1,824 scrimmage yards.
“I think I can really bring something to the table to help this offense in being a guy that can go out wherever, make plays from wherever on the field, and I’m really excited about that,” said Montgomery, who also added, “I can line up anywhere. I can create mismatches, I can go make plays at any given moment at any point on the field.”
