Report: Packers' Ty Montgomery traded to Baltimore

The Green Bay Packers running back who reportedly had  "a tantrum" on the sidelines during Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams, then reportedly disregarded orders and ran back a kickoff which he fumbled  has been traded.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Ty Montgomery was traded for a seventh-round pick in 2020 to Baltimore.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport  said on NFL Network  earlier Tuesday that Montgomery's "name that is now being discussed in trade circles, available for trade."

"He is a name that I know has drawn up interest," Rapoport said. "Absent the fumble, he is a player they really like."

Numerous Packers players and coaches expressed concern over what was described as  "a tantrum" after being taken out of the Packers-Rams game in the 4th quarter, then his apparent decision to disregard orders on a kickoff with slightly more than two minutes left in the game.

He then fumbled that kickoff, ending any realistic hopes for a Packers win.
