RAVENS ACQUIRE RB TY MONTGOMERY VIA TRADE
The Baltimore Ravens acquired RB Ty Montgomery from the Green Bay Packers in exchange for an undisclosed future draft pick, general manager/executive vice president Ozzie Newsome announced Tuesday afternoon.
To make room for Montgomery on its 53-man roster, Baltimore terminated the contract of vested veteran LB Albert McClellan.
In his fourth NFL season, Montgomery has registered 1,676 yards from scrimmage (849 rushing on 177 attempts and 827 receiving on 97 catches), scoring 10 total touchdowns (seven rushing and three receiving).
In seven games this season, he has recorded 105 rushing yards and one touchdown on 26 carries, adding 15 receptions for 170 yards.
The 6-foot, 216-pounder also has experience as a kickoff returner, posting 794 yards on 35 returns (22.7 avg.) during his career.
Green Bay originally selected Montgomery out of Stanford in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
