Vikings Sign Defensive End Michael Montgomery

Per Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, defensive end Michael Montgomery has passed a physical and has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.

Montgomery was a sixth round pick of the Green Bay Packers in the 2005 NFL Draft.  He played his college ball at Texas A&M, and started eight of 56 career games for the Packers.  All eight of his starts came in 2008.  That was also his best season, as he notched 59 tackles, 1.5 sacks, and a pass defended.

And that's about all I know about Michael Montgomery.  He'll be given an opportunity to add depth and versatility along the defensive line.  He was drafted as a defensive tackle, but has also played some defensive end.

I'll try to dig up more info on Montgomery for tomorrow.  Enjoy the rest of your night, folks!
