Sleep-deprived Ty Montgomery eager to turn page with Ravens

After making it clear during the season that he did not plan to re-sign with the Green Bay Packers, general manager Brian Gutekunst made the tough decision to move him.

At his introductory news conference Wednesday, a day after arriving in a trade from the Green Bay Packers, Clinton-Dix said he is "real close" with Redskins safety D.J. Swearinger. Montgomery was drafted in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Stanford, originally as a wide receiver.

The move was a good one. Against good defenses, the Ravens' running game has been ineffective and when teams bottle up John Brown, it looks like they do not have a solution to their offensive problems.

Brice and Whitehead have traded reps for much of the season at strong safety, while Clinton-Dix had occupied the free safety spot. His career average of 4.8 yards per run is higher than those of Alex Collins (4.3), rookie Gus Edwards (3.9) and Buck Allen (3.7).

With the Rams up 29-27, the Packers had a chance to win with at least a field goal, but Los Angeles getting the ball back essentially meant the game was over.

As it stands, none of Baltimore's running backs are slated to return in 2019 and it would take a lot of convincing for the team to retain Ty Montgomery following the year.

"It's been handsome", Montgomery said of the last 24 hours. Williams played some snaps at safety last week against the Rams and during his time with Mike Pettine when both were with the Cleveland Browns. He is above average at pass blocking and gives Joe Flacco another weapon in the passing game.

The 24-year-old has 26 carries for 105 yards and a score plus 15 catches for 170 yards in seven games this season. The Ravens added cornerback Cyrus Jones as a returner a few weeks ago from the practice squad and have Chris Moore but he could compete with those guys if they do not perform.

Whether Montgomery can help this Sunday against the Steelers, Harbaugh said he'll try to determine that in practice this week.
