  • D.J. Montgomery: Let go by Jets

    Montgomery was waived by the Jets on Monday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

    Montgomery joined the Jets in August 2020 upon being waived by the Browns. After spending that season on the practice squad, Montgomery made his NFL debut in 2021, appearing in three games and catching three passes on six targets for 36 yards. The former Austin Peay product now will look to earn a shot elsewhere for the upcoming season.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Remains with Jets

    Montgomery signed a reserve/future contract with the Jets on Monday.

    Montgomery was on the Jets' practice squad the majority of the season and caught three of six targets for 36 yards in three games. He'll attempt to nab a roster spot in training camp assuming he remains with the team through the offseason.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Gets elevated Saturday

    The Jets elevated Montgomery from their practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Ethan Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

    With Jamison Crowder (calf) doubtful and Elijah Moore still on the COVID-19 list, Montgomery will be elevated for a second straight game. Last week, the 25-year-old wideout played eight offensive snaps but didn't receive any targets. He also played eight special team snaps, recording one tackle on the kick coverage unit. He will likely garner a similar role against the Buccaneers in Week 17.

  • D.J. Montgomery: Back to practice squad

    Montgomery reverted to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction report.

    Montgomery played eight offensive snaps but didn't garner any targets. He also played eight special-team snaps, recording one tackle on the kick coverage unit. If Jamison Crowder and Elijah Moore remain sidelined in Week 17, then Montgomery would be a likely candidate for a second straight elevation.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Gets elevated Saturday

    The Jets elevated Montgomery from the practice squad Saturday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    Montgomery made an impact in his one previous elevation Week 14 against the Saints, hauling in three of six targets for 36 yards. Considering Jamison Crowder (calf) is doubtful for Sunday's contest against the Jaguars, Elijah Moore (quadriceps) is on the reserve/COVID-19 list, and Corey Davis (groin) is out for the season, Montgomery could mix into a receiving corps that also includes Keelan Cole, Denzel Mims, Braxton Berrios and Jeff Smith.

  • D.J. Montgomery: Demoted after three catches

    Montgomery reverted to the Jets' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Montgomery made his NFL debut in Week 14 and racked up three receptions in garbage time. He also finished third among the Jets' wide receiver corps in snaps, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him promoted again in Week 15 with Elijah Moore (quadriceps) on injured reserve.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Three catches in NFL debut

    Montgomery made his regular-season debut and caught three of six targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 30-9 loss to New Orleans.

    Montgomery didn't make much of an impact, and his production came after the game was well out of reach. With the Jets shorthanded at wide receiver, it wouldn't be surprising if they elevate Montgomery from the practice squad again in Week 15 against Miami before making a decision on whether to offer the 25-year-old wideout a contract.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Elevated to face Saints

    Montgomery was elevated from the practice squad Saturday.

    Montgomery has spent the season on the Jets' practice squad, though he has not been on the active roster. With Corey Davis (groin) and Elijah Moore (quadriceps) both sidelined, he could see time on offense but will almost certainly contribute on special teams.

  • D.J. Montgomery: Waived by Jets

    The Jets waived Montgomery on Tuesday.

    Montgomery spent the 2020 season on the Jets' practice squad and subsequently signed a reserve/future contract with them the following the season. After spending a full off-season with the team, he was ultimately unable to make enough of an impression to earn a spot on the 53-man roster.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Back with Jets on future contract

    The Jets signed Montgomery to a reserve/future contract Monday.

  • D.J. Montgomery: Moves to practice squad

    Montgomery was waived by the Jets on Saturday but subsequently signed to the practice squad, Andy Vasquez of The Bergen Record reports.

    Montgomery had just been claimed off waivers from the Browns, so this result shouldn't come as much of a surprise. Montgomery did end up on the Jets practice squad however, which could afford the 23-year-old a spot on the active roster down the road.

  • Jets' D.J. Montgomery: Picked up by Jets

    The Jets claimed Montgomery off waivers from the Browns on Sunday, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    The Jets have a ton of injuries at wide receiver, including Breshad Perriman (knee) and Denzel Mims (hamstring), so they're adding depth whenever they can. Montgomery is a longshot to make the final roster if the Jets' wideouts get healthy.

  • D.J. Montgomery: Waived by Cleveland

    Montgomery was waived by the Browns on Saturday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    The 23-year-old spent the entirety of the 2019 season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury and won't break camp with the Browns this season. Montgomery signed with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent out of Austin Peay in May 2019.
