David Montgomery

Should the Bears trade David Montgomery?

The 2022 NFL trade deadline is quickly approaching. There’s been speculation about the Chicago Bears’ as potential sellers at the deadline, with linebacker Roquan Smith being the headliner for teams in contention. But what about running back David Montgomery? Should GM Ryan Poles unload his starting running back who’s on an expiring contract?

The simple answer is yes. And I’m a huge Montgomery guy; I believe in his talent and think his first four years in the NFL could’ve been better had he been with a team that used him correctly.

Former coach Matt Nagy refused to commit to the run. This year, head coach Matt Eberflus and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy are all-in on the ground attack but are splitting Montgomery’s reps with second-year pro, Khalil Herbert, in a time-share that’s exposed a simple truth: as talented as Montgomery is, it’s undeniable that he’s a replaceable piece in Chicago’s offense right now.
