This isn’t terribly surprising. The Green Bay Packers haven’t released running back Ty Montgomery, but they appear to be willing to trade him.
NFL Network is reporting that the Packers have put Montgomery on the trade block.
Montgomery has grown frustrated with his use in Green Bay. That seemed to boil over on Sunday when he threw his helmet in frustration after being taken out of the game in the fourth quarter.
Clearly, Montgomery is the third running back and he’s not going to get many opportunities. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams are going to get the bulk of the carries on a team that doesn’t run much anyway.
Montgomery said he’s unclear what his role is at this point.
“… I got a little frustrated. I wanted to make a play. I wasn’t playing very much and I wasn’t able to make a play and I was frustrated about that. I don’t fully understand what my role is right now, what I’m supposed to be doing, how I’m supposed to help this team. And it’s frustrating when I want to help the team and I get limited opportunities and it didn’t happen on that play. So I came off frustrated about it.”
However, Montgomery is now at the center of some sort of fracture in the locker room. If the Packers can’t trade him, it will be interesting to see if they do indeed release him.
They have until 4 p.m. ET today to make a trade.
The upside on Montgomery is he’s still on his rookie contract and he’s versatile. Do you know where he’d probably be good? On a team like the Rams or 49ers. While the latter team isn’t very good right now, both teams have innovative offensive coaches. Sean McVay or Kyle Shanahan would find a way to utilize Montgomery’s talents.
Yeah, he is versatile. He can suck at multiple positions; RB, WR, KR. He’s the Don Barclay of skill position players. Uncle Ted’s pride and joy.
“both teams have innovative offensive coaches. Sean McVay or Kyle Shanahan would find a way to utilize Montgomery’s talents.”
Why is it that the Rams and 49ers would know how to utilize him, but the Packers just can’t figure it out?
Agree with me, don’t agree with me, it’s all good, do your own thinking, but…
Ty is getting hammered without mercy, some deserved, some way over the top. Here’s what i’m thinking….Where are the leaders of this team? You got player(s) bus driving Montgomery to the media. That most likely doesn’t happen on a Reggie White team, or a Charles Woodson team. A leader should have told the team before the media was let in the locker room to watch what you say. I don’t care if Ty fucked up, you don’t do a teammate like that (period), If i knew who did that, i would lose almost all, if not all respect for that person, including Rodgers.
Concerning the safety, which was the scoring difference in the game. Why isn’t anyone blasting that play call? Whose dumb fuck play call was that? If it was an RPO Rodgers should have known and/or seen better, if it was a straight up run play, why the fuck would you run Aaron Jones into the teeth of the Rams D-line from 1 or 2 feet out of the end zone? If you were going to insist on running that shit play, wouldn’t you use Williams, someone who’s more powerful?
The talking heads, and some commentators are blasting Montgomery, citing the fact it wasted a great defensive performance….excuse me?
Since when does giving up over 400 yards and 27 points fall into the category of a great defense performance?
Really?………Whats a bad performance, 440 yards and 30 points?
They played a great defensive game the 1st quarter, they played ok the second quarter. Then what?
By all accounts, Ty has been a stand up guy, i’ve NEVER seen nor heard anything negative about him, he’s a proven team player. So some Packer player bus drives him to the media? Fuck him, he’s the player who should be cut, not Ty.
Vent over…Thanks again

Gotta give props to GUTE, 2piles of walkin talkin BS gone in 1 day, WAY TO GO! He did more than NO STONES McCarthy and FLAT DICK Murphy ever do.
