One way or another, it seemed that the Green Bay Packers were going to do something with running back Ty Montgomery in the coming days. Following his decision to leave the end zone on a kickoff return — leading to his fumble and a lost opportunity for a comeback against the 7-0 Rams — the team made no indication that they were going to cut him loose.
However, trade speculation began almost immediately with the deadline approaching on Tuesday afternoon, and that reached a conclusion at about 2:15 Central Time, when the Packers apparently reached an agreement with the Baltimore Ravens on a trade:
According to Adam Schefter, the Ravens are sending a seventh-round draft pick in 2020 in exchange for Montgomery, which is virtually nothing. Clearly the Packers wanted to move on from Montgomery after the recent saga, and as Schefter indicated, Montgomery also wanted a change of scenery.
