1. Offense for defense
Remember earlier when I said a lack of weapons is what Wilson had? Well, that’s where the Ty Montgomery, a 2019 third-round pick and a 2019 seventh-round pick come in play. In the past two years, Wilson has lost Graham, Willson, Jermaine Kearse, and Paul Richardson on the offensive unit. That’s a huge blow because those four players were vital to Seattle’s success at moving the ball down the field. This is where Montgomery’s ability as a receiver and runner comes into play.
He’s a multi-tool on the offense because he’s played wide receiver for so many years while recently being converted to a running back. He has the route tree ingrained in his head while also packing on the muscle the past two years to run between the tackles. Seattle could use him as a bigger version of Alvin Kamara in that offense. A Wilson and Montgomery combination could drive defensive coordinators nuts.
Montgomery is in a crowded young running back room in Green Bay and he would only see limited carries. If he would go to Seattle he would add an element that’s not there yet. I could even see Seattle moving him back to wide receiver if necessary to fill in the losses from past years. None the less, Thomas said he wants a new contract or out of Seattle while Montgomery could be used to his full potential in Seattle.
On a scale of 1 to 10, what is the possibility of this trade happening? I give this trade a seven or eight because Montgomery would give Seattle its X-factor player in the offense and get the work he is built for.
