#88 Running Back / Wide Receiver / Kick Returner
NEW YORK JETS
Ty Montgomery took the NFL by storm in 2016 when he moved from his drafted position of wide receiver to become the Green Bay Packers starting running back in the middle of the campaign. He went on to rack up over 800 total yards from scrimmage, while averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Shouldering the work load in the Packers backfield, the 2015 third-round draft pick also set an NFL record for most yards after contact (5.1) during a single season. Montgomery’s ability to switch positons mid-year helped the Packers reach the NFC Championship game.
Versatility has always been Montgomery’s forte. He was named to the 2013 NCAA All-American team as a kick returner, as a junior at Stanford. In the NFL, Montgomery has started and produced at running back, wide receiver and kick returner—amassing a total of 3,175 all-purpose yards in four seasons.
After a stellar career a St. Mark’s School of Texas high school in Dallas, Montgomery went west and played four years of collegiate football for the Stanford Cardinal. Montgomery joined the Packers as the 94th overall selection in the 2015 NFL draft, where he played three-and-a-half seasons before being traded to the Baltimore Ravens during the 2018 campaign. Montgomery was signed by the New York Jets in April of 2019 and became a stable veteran presence in the locker room, contributing in the rushing, receiving and the return game during the season.
Off the field, Montgomery has formed his own 501(c)(3) charitable foundation titled My 10 Percent, that supports and empowers the forgotten youth in society by giving them hope for a future that they desire and faith that what they desire is possible. His charitable works includes supporting foster care initiatives, working to fight the epidemic of human trafficking, and various other programs that supports forgotten youth.
