Ty Montgomery ready to put final Packers days "in the past"

The Green Bay Packers have made a trade just ahead of the deadline.

Green Bay traded the fourth-year running back to the Ravens for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick, according to reports. Montgomery was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Stanford, originally as a wide receiver. The Packers, meanwhile, will move on with running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams.

After already fielding one of the better defenses in the entire league, this move not only makes Washington better right now, but practically hand delivers the team their starting safety for the next half-decade-plus.

The Baltimore Ravens ground game has been miserable to put it lightly. 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. Alex Collins and Javorius Allen have largely disappointed in 2018, as both the young runners have under 4.0 YPC thus far.

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

Asked about his last days in Green Bay, Montgomery said, "I don't want to be rude".

Khashoggi, 59, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain paperwork necessary for his upcoming marriage to Ms. Cengiz said she had not been contacted by Crown Prince Mohammed or the Saudi Royal family , nor offered any condolences by them.

"I don't know if I was hoping for a fresh start", Montgomery said.

Montgomery is a free agent in 2019 and he can be considered a half-year rental if the Ravens decide not to keep the 25-year-old running back/wide receiver next year if this does not work out despite giving up very little for him.

An undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2016, Carson played in two games with the Cincinnati Bengals this season before being added to the Packers' practice squad on October 9. He is above average at pass blocking and gives Joe Flacco another weapon in the passing game. Through his first three+ seasons, Montgomery has less than 1,000 rushing and receiving yards and just 10 total touchdowns. He did take part in practice Wednesday after three hours of sleep.
