CelebNSports247.com reports that the New Jersey Jets are making sure everyone is properly covered on the field because they don’t want to be without a player.
Watching the video above, we totally understand why the New Jersey Jets have signed Ty Montgomery.
If you recall the former Steelers Le’Veon Bell recently sad that his injuries are behind him, but hey, you never know.
Bell, who tore his ACL in 2017 told 24/7 Sports during the 2018 season:
For me to get hurt [again] will take a lot. I know when I’m 30 or 31 years old, I know I’ll be productive because I don’t depend solely on my athletic ability to get open and get yards. It’s more my mind. The Steelers know that.
Fast forward to now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports:
The Jets are signing Ty Montgomery to a one-year deal. Montgomery, 26, finished last season with the Ravens after being unceremoniously traded by the Packers following a botched kickoff return that cost them against the Rams.
Montgomery did enjoy some success in Green Bay. In just under four seasons, He rushed for 932 yards and seven touchdowns. Drafted as a receiver, he has exhibited his talent out of the backfield with 107 catches for 892 yards and three touchdowns in his career, according to NorthJersey.com.
He looks to be the primary backup to Bell, with the Jets still having Elijah McGuire and Trenton Cannon on the roster.
