Word was that Ty Montgomery would be — and league rules seemed to dictate that — changing his number after transitioning from receiver to running back.
He is not.
Montgomery announced that he’d keep No. 88 over the weekend.

Frankly, I think that’s great. Who else has a running back that wears No. 88?
I’ll tell ya who. Not a goddam team in the league.
You get on with your bad self, Ty Montgomery!
Meanwhile, the Packers’ newest toy, tight end Martellus Bennett, let fans choose his number. He clearly has no attachment to any two digits.
Even though we made a strong case for No. 86, fans went with James Lofton’s No. 80 for Bennett.
Yes, also Donald Driver’s No. 80, but one of those two guys is in the Hall of Fame, so more so James Lofton’s No. 80.
And that’s fine. It’s going to be fun to have a guy like Martellus Bennett around.
What’s on your mind, Holmes?
Riveting news you’re reporting right here. Geez a whole article on that??
Bennett has the glorious Perillo’s number now.
Actually, this article might be very relevant.
It seems to me that i recall last season statement’s were made that Ty would be getting a new # (from the Packers). It looks as if that has changed. So you can’t help but wonder if his desire to be a running back has changed also.
Did you read the tweet from Montgomery in the article??? It clearly states he is not required to change his number.
