Ty Montgomery on his position: I’m an employee of the Patriots

Ty Montgomery has not been a member of the Patriots for a long time, but he’s had no problem getting with the program.

Montgomery spoke to reporters on Thursday and one of the questions he fielded had to do with what position he’ll be playing in New England. Montgomery has played running back and wide receiver while spending time with the Packers, Ravens, Jets, and Saints, but he followed in the footsteps of Patriots coaches in refusing to divulge his role with the team.

“I consider myself an employee of the New England Patriots, and whatever they ask me is what I’m gonna do,” Montgomery said, via Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald.

Patriots running backs coach Vinnie Sunseri did say this week that Montgomery has spent time with his group during practice sessions and Montgomery’s extensive special teams action the last few years suggests that it’s a good bet that contributing in that area will help his chances of making the 53-man roster in New England this season.

  1. Glad to see that Ty continues to have an excellent career. It was always interesting to see a #88 lined up as a Packers RB.

  2. Patriots value guys that can do many things. Sounds like Ty is going to fit in well

  3. Wow! I don’t think I have ever heard a NFL player say that?? Nice to hear for once.

  4. I have the greatest respect for Ty. When the Packers needed him, he stepped up.

  5. He’ll do well in New England, always liked him as a player.

    But aren’t we at the point where we’re starting to realize by now that lying to the media hasn’t won them one game, once, ever? That never made one bit of difference. The difference plays in Tampa Bay.

    I would agree with you if he hadn’t ignored instructions and brought a kickoff out of the endzone and fumbled. I was in the camp that McCarthy should have gotten canned years prior but it doesn’t exonerate Montgomery for ignoring direction.

  7. This was an off-season FA acquisition that I really liked a lot…. Kind of under the radar type pick up that could be very impactful due to his versatility & how he can be used to exploit other teams weaknesses…. Think he & Mac will become very close teammates…..

  9. Maybe he will move to the defensive side of the ball. They already have defensive and special teams guys coaching offense, so why not? What could go wrong?

  10. The Patriots offense should be better this season. With Mac Jones in year 2 and additional weapons, the sky is the limit.
