Schum clears waivers, back to Packers' injured list for now

Packers RB Ty Montgomery explains position change

Packers release punter Jacob Schum

On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers announced that one of their three draft picks who had not yet signed their contracts had done so, as outside linebacker Vince Biegel inked his rookie contract.

The Packers have released three punters over the a year ago.

Nevertheless, Ty Montgomery of the Packers has decided that he wants to make his transition from wide receiver to running back a full-time switch. Why?

"So, would I rather be trying to be someone's No. 1 running back than being somebody's fourth, fifth or sixth receiver?" Montgomery said during an appearance at ESPN studios Tuesday. "It all came down to quality over quantity, and I want the quality of years to be what I want". The team also signed fourth-round running back Jamaal Williams.

Undrafted free agent addition Justin Vogel is now the only punter on the 90-man roster, but there's ample time for the team to consider other options before the regular season rolls around.

Montgomery has more earning potential as a starter at running back over the next handful of years than he does as a reserve wide receiver for the next decade.
