Packers trade Ty Montgomery to Baltimore after disobeying coaches

Welp – now we know what the Green Bay Packers are going to do with Ty Montgomery.

They’re just not going to deal with him anymore, after reportedly dealing him to Baltimore.

Shipped out after Sunday mishap

Via ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Packers are getting a 2020 seventh-round pick from the Ravens for Montgomery, making it crystal clear they were ready to move on from the 2015 third-round pick.

On Sunday, Montgomery made one of the most ill-advised on-field moves of the season, bringing the ball out of the end zone with just over two minutes to play against the Los Angeles Rams and then fumbling it away, robbing Aaron Rodgers the opportunity to try to stage a game-winning or at least game-tying drive against the undefeated Rams.

Making matters worse, multiple Green Bay players told NFL Media’ Mike Silver after the game that Montgomery defied coaches’ orders. He’d been told to simply field the ball and take a knee, which would have put the Packers at their own 25 with the 2-minute warning and another timeout to try to get into at least field goal position to send the game to overtime.

Players said Montgomery was angry on the team’s previous possession because he was taken off the field, and suggested he brought the ball out as a response.

Montgomery denied that he ignored orders.
