    Ty Montgomery May Move Back to Wide Receiver

    Wednesday, February 14, 12:50 PM

    Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery may be moving back to wide receiver. Montgomery played receiver in college and started his NFL career at the position before transitioning to running back in 2016 following a rash of injuries at the position. Montgomery has been effective at running back, but his durability has been problematic, although he struggled with injuries at receiver as well. This year, Green Bay is returning with depth at the position, with Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams both having demonstrated that they can be capable players. Montgomery is a more explosive runner than Williams, better in pass protection than Jones and is a better receiver than both. Still, Jones figures to see a good deal of action next year, which will limit Montgomery's snaps. In response, Montgomery may be moved back to receiver, working primarily out of the slot. Montgomery has shown to be a better running back than wide receiver, but any move that increases his touches would be a positive one. The ideal situation would be if Montgomery maintains the starting running back job. How this entire situation plays out will largely determine Montgomery's value going forward, and it will be worth keeping an eye on.

    Ty Montgomery Biography

    Early Years and High School

    Ty Montgomery is a Texas resident, but he was born in Mississippi on January 22, 1993. In an auspicious beginning to his career as an all-around athletic jack of all trades, Montgomery stood out as a star in four different high school sports. He ran 100m in 10.81 seconds and 200m in 22.2. He also did yeoman work on the football field for St. Mark's School in Dallas. In his time on the team Montgomery caught the ball 118 times and made 36 touchdowns.


    Montgomery attended Stanford University on the California coast. He was acclaimed All-American as a return specialist in his junior year, and in 2013 he held the national record for the the highest average kickoff return. He had a total of 172 receptions over the course of his college career, earning a total of 2,125 yards and 15 touchdowns. Montgomery's college highlight reel can be seen here.

    NFL Draft

    Montgomery put out an impressive set of statistics, including a 40 time of 4.55 seconds and 40.5 inches vertical jump. The Green Bay Packers drafted him on the third round in 2015. He chose the #88 for his jersey and reported to camp for training as a wide receiver. Because of Montgomery's shorter stature and heavier weight, he was widely seen as an unusual pick for the third round. In fact, there have been only three other wide receivers with similar statistics in the history of the league. Montgomery's full draft profile can be seen here.

    2015 NFL Season

    Montgomery's rookie season with the Green Bay Packers was cut short after only a few games. A Week 6 game against the San Diego Charger ended with an injury to his ankle, sidelining him for the remainder of the season. He received the ball 15 times while he was playing, running it back an average of 9.1 yards each completion for a total of 136 yards.

    2016 NFL Season

    Montgomery's 2016 season began slowly, with only 17 snaps on offense coming to him and no catches at all. But a game against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6 turned it all around. In one game he received the ball 10 times and ran it almost a thousand yards. He matched that performance the next week in a game against the Bears, and the coach declared permanently placed in the running back position on December 13. In the ensuing game, a rematch against the Bears, Montgomery rewarded the coach's decision with a spectacular performance. Completing 16 receptions for 162 yards returned, Montgomery played his best professional game ever. He lead the Packers in rushing yards for the 2016 season. A video summary of his highlights for the year can be found here.

    Personal Life

    Ty Montgomery is engaged to his long time girlfriend Lexie Dierker. They intend to be married in 2017. His Twitter handle is @TyMontgomery2 and his Instagram is @ty_kingdomcitizen. He has two more years to run on a four year contract with the Green Bay Packers, earning a substantial signing bonus and an annual salary of $737,199 for a total of $2,948,795.
