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?
