Montgomery's career has been lackluster.
"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. What transpired were insider stories that included anonymous quotes from supposed teammates who questioned Montgomery's decision-making and loyalty.
"I don't necessarily think there's a message it sends to the locker room", the first-year GM said Wednesday.
Here's the information on the sideline dysfunction which Montgomery caused for the Packers. They could've turned the other cheek and, in the process, looked weak for essentially promoting insubordination. Green Bay ended up getting a fourth-round pick for him.
The Green Bay Packers had two open roster spots after trading two players for draft picks on Tuesday. That gave the Packers even more incentive to try and seek compensation while they could.
The acquisition of Montgomery for a 2020 seventh-round draft pick was made to augment a rushing attack that ranks 24th in the National Football League in yards per game (96.6) and 31st in yards per carry (3.6). "That's always the major factor in these decisions".
Gutekunst and co. are likely stockpiling for the player acquisition market after the season. The move comes just days after there were several rumors swirling around that Clinton-Dix was available right before the 2018 trade deadline. "It's just adding a good player".
