Packers coach Mike McCarthy suggested Ty Montgomery could become more of a "hybrid" receiver-running back in 2018.
Drafted to play receiver out of Stanford in 2015, Montgomery instead spent most of the last two seasons at running back. Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams showed more as runners last season, however, so Montgomery's role seems likely to be tweaked. If the Packers release Randall Cobb, we'd be interested to see if Montgomery would be given an opportunity to earn snaps at slot receiver.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky believes the time might be right for Green Bay to move Ty Montgomery back to wide receiver.
Montgomery was nearly an every-down running back the first three weeks of last season, but the injuries started kicking in soon after. 41 of his 71 carries came in Weeks 1-3 before suffering a wrist injury five snaps into Week 4. He then sustained broken ribs just a couple weeks later. Montgomery was eventually placed on I.R. after carrying the ball just 14 times from Weeks 8-10. His body simply didn't hold up in the backfield, and the Packers have Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones as arguably better options. At receiver, Montgomery could replace Randall Cobb in the slot.

Ty Montgomery will undergo wrist surgery.
Montgomery first injured his wrist in Week 4. He played through it, but it wasnâ€™t getting any better. Montgomery will get surgery now that heâ€™s on IR. He should be ready for OTAs.
