That's a possibility .... but roster spots come at a premium... at RB I'd rather see Williams and Jones... I don't think you can justify paying Monty to be the number 3. At WR... he is not number 1 ( which we are going to need to address btw) but we have a lot of guys looking for playing time in that area for the number 3, 4, spots. What happens with Cobb may shed some light here. Adams needs to get signed... and I think we need to start looking for another top guy to replace Jordy sooner than later. But we also have Geronimo and Clark... and Mcaffrey sitting on the practice squad. I'm expecting Janis to be gone... and Davis well... whatever. The point is with Monty's injury history he may end up being odd man out.Keep him at RB and use him as a Sprolles guy. Don't over think it guys
And my vote (the same) doesn't really matter as the team is not run by popular vote. Not even by a majority owner vote.I voted keep Montgomery as an RB, mainly as an insurance policy with how our RB's always seem to get injured and miss some time.
I’ve always viewed Montgomery as a guy with enough versatility that you are best served by moving him around the formation, putting him in motion making the defense make correct adjustments on the fly. One guy ******** up gives us a favorable matchup to be exploited for an explosive play.I voted keep Montgomery as an RB, mainly as an insurance policy with how our RB's always seem to get injured and miss some time.
I'd move him back to WR. Re-sign Adams, move Jordy to the slot, and Montgomery on the opposite side. With a healthy #12, that's a fairly lethal set of wideouts.
Williams and Jones give you plenty in the backfield, and complement each other nicely. No need for Montgomery back there.
and he can't keep a position.
well he missed the rest of his rookie season at WR on the inactive list and IR after a handful of games played only. injury at RB did move him to that position, but it appears he's not that durable. I'd be leaning towards moving him to WR and seeing if he can take Cobb's role in the offense, but I'm not sure we can count on him being available. He seems to regularly leave games with ankle injuries and that's not even considering the stuff that keeps him out for weeks. I had high hopes for him. But he looked slow this year at RB, much slower than I remember him. and then hurt. Hard to really get a gauge, but he's clearly been out played by the 2 rookie RB's going right now. I would not keep him there.How so? It was injuries to others that forced us to play him RB...and maybe his own injuries would force a move back to WR.
When Nelson retires, it'll be Cobb/Adams as main duo with Ty playing the backfield role.
I just dont see him having the quicks of a Sproles type. Especially with all the additional heft he is carrying. It may be just me but he doesnt seem to have the same quicks as last year. I was really excited about his possibilities after last year but maybe its just he cant stay healthy and Mccarthy doesnt know how to use him.Keep him at RB and use him as a Sprolles guy. Don't over think it guys
