Baltimore Ravens trade for running back Ty Montgomery

Packers’ attacking defense draws its toughest chore yet with deceptive Rams Packers’ attacking defense draws its toughest chore yet with deceptive Rams

The Green Bay Packers were busy before Tuesday's National Football League trade deadline, moving safety HaHa Clinton-Dix on to the Washington Redskins and running back Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens, who announced the acquisition of Montgomery and the release of linebacker Albert McClellan to clear a roster spot, will reportedly trade the Packers a 2020 seventh-round pick in exchange for the running back.

Montgomery was a 2015 third-round pick out of Stanford, where he was a wide receiver. The Packers, meanwhile, will move on with running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams. The run game has been a recurring issue all year with the inconsistent and bad playcalling, poor run blocking, and injuries to the offensive line. He appeared in 50 games with 47 starts over four seasons at UT, recording 91 receptions for 998 yards (11.0 avg.) and seven touchdowns. Alex Collins and Javorius Allen have largely disappointed in 2018, as both the young runners have under 4.0 YPC thus far. "I will say I was ready to put all of that in the past".

"Never spent any time in Maryland before", said the 25-year-old Montgomery, who was born in MS, raised in Texas, attended Stanford in California and was drafted by the Packers in Wisconsin.




"It's been lovely", Montgomery said of the last 24 hours.

Montgomery is only 25 years old and has shown that he's versatile, especially as a kick returner, so the Ravens are getting a very talented player. He had indicated earlier this year he didn't anticipate returning to the team when he hit free agency in March 2019.

"They took him out (the previous drive) for a play and he slammed his helmet and threw a fit", one Packers player said. He is above average at pass blocking and gives Joe Flacco another weapon in the passing game.

Carson was promoted from the Packers practice squad on Wednesday. There is a chance that Montgomery will play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
