The Saints have agreed to terms with free agent Ty Montgomery, Nick Underhill of neworleans.football reports.

Montgomery has played both running back and receiver, giving Sean Payton yet another toy for his offense.

The Packers made Montgomery a third-round choice in 2015. He started his career at receiver before moving to running back after the Packers had injuries at the position.

He also returned kickoffs, and in fact, a fumble on a kickoff late in a 2018 game against the Rams, and the aftermath of whether he was told to down it in the end zone, got him traded to the Ravens.

Montgomery, 27, played with the Jets last season, seeing action in 16 games with two starts.

He had 45 touches for 193 yards and returned 18 kickoffs for a 20.2 yards average last season.

  1. If it was any other team, this would be a nondescript signing, but the Saints have proven that they are the masters of utilizing guys with unique skillsets. Montgomery couldn’t have asked for a better fit. Also I’m glad that Nick Underhill is back in New Orleans.

  2. Remember when turd nation said he would be better than Barry Sanders! Packer trolls are funny!

    I don’t remember anyone in Packer nation making that statement. Must be something made up by a Vikings troll. You got proof??

  4. From what I have seen, his skill level is nowhere near starting caliber for the saints.

    Nothing funnier than seeing Viking fans trolling Packer stories while talking about Packer trolls. Good Lord this guy is thick.

  6. Payton loves these hybrid players that can play multiple positions. All of that, “I have a vision for this player and that player”), but that doesn’t matter if the team goes one and done in the playoffs again this year!

    In other words, Sean Payton can have all of the visions he wants for these players but he needs to get back to a Super Bowl.

    Actually that was just Ted Thompson muttering in his sleep.

    And in 5yrs he has just over 1000yds rushing and less than 1000yds receiving so he’s more decoy than toy!

  9. SP knows how to take guys like this and put them in roles that maximize their talent. If Travaris Cadet can catch 40 passes in the Saints offense, this guy can catch 50 or 60, even if they’re just short ones. There’s nothing wrong with a 5 yard pass on 1st down, it may not make the highlight reels but it moves you down the field.

  10. Good pickup, if Kamara goes down again he’ll be able to fill in nicely when Murray needs a breather.
