NFL: Vikings sign DE Montgomery
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings have signed defensive end Mike Montgomery to a one-year deal.
Montgomery spent the past five seasons with NFC North rival Green Bay. The Packers drafted him out of Texas A&M in the sixth round in 2005.
Montgomery's best season came in 2008 when he started eight games with 71 tackles and 2› sacks. But his playing time dropped when the Packers switched to a 3-4 defense under Dom Capers.
In Minnesota, Montgomery will serve as a backup to starting ends Jared Allen and Ray Edwards.
