CHARLOTTE, N.C. (MAY 9, 2019) — PROSPORT Management has signed a marketing representation agreement with New York Jets running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery, who becomes the agency’s first NFL client. Montgomery signed with the Jets in April after spending three-and-a-half seasons with the Green Bay Packers and a half-season with the Baltimore Ravens.
Montgomery took the NFL by storm in 2016 when he moved from his drafted position of wide receiver to become the Green Bay Packers starting running back in the middle of the campaign. He went on to rack up over 800 total yards from scrimmage, while averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Shouldering the workload in the Packers backfield, the 2015 third-round draft pick also set an NFL record for most yards after contact (5.1) during a single season. Montgomery’s ability to switch positions mid-year helped the Packers reach the NFC Championship game.
Versatility has always been Montgomery’s forte. He was named to the 2013 NCAA All-American team as a kick returner, as a junior at Stanford. In the NFL, Montgomery has started and produced at running back, wide receiver and kick returner—amassing a total of 2,618 all-purpose yards in four seasons.
Off the field, Montgomery has formed his own 501(c)(3) charitable foundation titled My 10 Percent, that supports and empowers the forgotten youth in society by giving them hope for a future that they desire and faith that what they desire is possible. His charitable works include supporting foster care initiatives, working to fight the epidemic of human trafficking, and various other programs that support forgotten youth.
