Packers veteran Ty Montgomery was one of the most interesting stories of the 2017 season.
The receiver-turned-running-back still donned a wideout number, had great hands, and seemed like he could be the back of the future. His production slowed down immensely going into the 2018 season, and now it seems as if his time in Green Bay could be close to the end.
After disobeying the team and costing the Packers a shot at a come-from-behind win on Sunday, his teammates were obviously furious with him, going as far as to call him selfish.
Well, apparently he's mad, too.
Ty Montgomery also admitted he was frustrated when he came off the field during the last series and is unsure of his role on the team but was adamant that it did not impact his decision the bring the kickoff out of the end zone. https://t.co/hNqxPqlZMk— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) October 29, 2018
Montgomery threw a tantrum on the sidelines over his lack of usage in the game and then attempted to play hero with a kickoff return that resulted in a fumble, ending Green Bay's chances at victory.
It was fairly obvious the Montgomery was being selfish about his role, but the back claims it did not cause him to bring that final kick out.
Plain and simple, Montgomery is doing a bad job at trying to save face.
Play your role and keep calm. Instead, he tried to be the hero and is paying severely for it.
