At this point it’s probably safe to say that Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery is more well-known than he ever would have been if he stayed at receiver.
Although running backs have become devalued in the pass-happy NFL, it’s still a glamour position. And think of all the greats who have played for the Packers — Tony Canadeo, Paul Hornung, Jim Taylor, Ahman Green, etc., etc.
While quarterback Aaron Rodgers, appropriately, will be the most well-known Packer as long as he’s on the team, Montgomery is gaining reputation. So much so that he can’t even introduce himself anymore.
These days I can't even introduce myself. Sometimes I get cut off with a "I know who you are"

Is that what you would call “celebrity problems?”
Relax, people. We know Montgomery to be a pretty genial and intelligent guy. Let him introduce himself, even if you do know who he is.
