Third-round draft pick Ty Montgomery was the star of the first day of full-pads practices.
“Ty’s a playmaker. It was good to see him back there. He’s fit in nicely on offense, made a few plays. He’s off to a good start,” Coach Mike McCarthy said of the rookie, who took a lot of reps as kickoff returner during special teams practice, and then distinguished himself as a receiver later in Saturday’s practice.
“I thought we got off to a solid start. We did more team work. It’s the best teaching you can have, competing against each other,” McCarthy said.
