APC Podcast, 10/30: Are the Packers better without Montgomery and Clinton-Dix?

New, comments

The trade deadline didn’t bring any help on the edge, but it did usher in the end of two players’ tenures in Green Bay

Sundays aside, Green Bay could be categorized as a sleepy town. Historically, this label could also be applied to the team during the run up to the NFL’s trade deadline. Not so under new General Manager Brian Gutekunst. Nearly at the whistle — 4pm eastern time on Tuesday — two transactions were announced. The first sends the recently embattled Ty Montgomery to the Baltimore Ravens for a 2020 7th round pick. Reports of his imminent release make a future draft pick of any kind in return feel like a win. Meanwhile, the team also received a 2019 4th round pick for former first rounder Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. Although Dix made a number of splash plays this year, the writing was on the wall that he would not be coming back next year. Again, getting such value in return feels like a win. That’s all well and good for the future Green Bay Packers. But what about the now? After moving on from these two players, are the Packers better off? Or do these moves represent a circling of the wagons on this season. We gathered immediately after the trade deadline to give our rapid reactions on the tumultuous day in Title Town.
