D.J. Montgomery: Back with Jets on future contract

The Jets signed Montgomery to a reserve/future contract Monday.

Analysis: The Austin Peay standout didn't receive any game opportunities with New York after joining the team off waivers Aug. 30. Initially an undrafted free agent signing of the Browns in 2019, the 24-year-old remains devoid of an NFL regular-season appearance. Montgomery dealt with an undisclosed injury during November, but he has since been cleared as he continues into the new year with the Jets.

Montgomery was waived by the Jets on Saturday, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

Analysis: Montgomery had just been claimed off waivers from the Browns, so this result shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Montgomery did end up on the Jets practice squad however, which could afford the 23-year-old a spot on the active roster down the road.

D.J. Montgomery: Picked up by Jets

The Jets claimed Montgomery off waivers from the Browns on Sunday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

Analysis: The Jets have a ton of injuries at wide receiver, including Breshad Perriman (knee) and Denzel Mims (hamstring), so they're adding depth whenever they can. Montgomery is a longshot to make the final roster if the Jets' wideouts get healthy.

Montgomery was waived by the Browns on Saturday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

D.J. Montgomery: Heads to IR

The Browns placed Montgomery (hamstring) on the injured reserve list Wednesday.

Analysis: Montgomery originally missed practice Wednesday while dealing with the hamstring injury, and will now head to IR. The Austin Peay product already had long odds to make the roster, and will stay on the teams roster barring an agreement on an injury settlement with the team.

D.J. Montgomery: Nursing hamstring issue

Montgomery is not practicing Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: Montgomery has returned to Cleveland's facilities after spending time away from the team due to personal reasons, but his ability to practice is now impeded by a hamstring issue. The undrafted wideout out of Austin Peay faces long odds to make the 53-man roster, and will look to get healthy as soon as possible.
