Montgomery, who is 25 years old, joins a Lions running back group that had the most rushing touchdowns in the league last season with 23, including 17 from Jamaal Williams and five from D'Andre Swift. Williams is currently an unrestricted free agent, while Swift is under contract through 2023, the final year of his rookie deal.
Despite a competitive group of free agent running backs, Montgomery still managed to rank tenth in rushing yards with 801 and fifth in receiving yards with 316. He also recorded his first receiving touchdown since his second season in Chicago, while achieving his highest yards per catch at 9.3 in 2022.
