2. Ty Montgomery

When the Saints signed Ty Montgomery in 2020, it felt like a solid move for a Sean Payton offense that could find the best possible way to utilize him. After two years, however, it didn’t turn into anything but disappointment for Montgomery as a member of the Saints.

Before coming to New Orleans, Montgomery made a name for himself in Green Bay when the Packers lost all of their running backs and he transitioned to one despite playing wide receiver. Ever since then, Montgomery dipped into both pools for the teams he’s played for.

Montgomery didn’t do much in 2020, rushing the ball 19 times for 101 yards while catching just three passes for 27 yards. In year two as a Saint, Montgomery ran the ball 15 times for a measly 44 yards while catching 16 passes for 95 yards.

When Montgomery was slated to hit free agency, fans weren’t expecting the team to bring him back and he ended up signing with the Patriots. This isn’t a loss that will hurt the Saints’ offense at all and it was smart to move on from Montgomery.
