Things are different under new general manager Brian Gutekunst, who followed his departure from Thompson's philosophy of standing pat at the trade deadline by holding a news conference Wednesday morning at Lambeau Field. It's something that never would've happened under the old regime.
After it was reported that Packers running back/wide receiver Ty Montgomery failed to obey coaches' orders to take a knee in the end zone on a play that resulted in him fumbling the kickoff and blowing the game, Green Bay has reportedly traded him to the Baltimore Ravens.
Ty Montgomery was a productive player for the Packers over most of his three-plus seasons as a professional, but it seems likely that his final act will be the lasting memory of his time in Green Bay. But that doesn't mean there isn't at least some element of shock to it.
Montgomery is a talented player who will be a good addition to the Ravens offense.
Montgomery said his wife and son had received threats and he told them not to attend a radio show in Green Bay on Monday. This prompted Baltimore to make an obviously needed change for their depth chart.
An undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M in 2016, Carson played in two games with the Cincinnati Bengals this season before being added to the Packers' practice squad on October 9.
Clinton-Dix appeared to confirm the deal on Twitter, sending a goodbye note to Packers fans.
I don't think it's hyperbolic to say that Haha Clinton-Dix is the best safety the Redskins have had since the late great Sean Taylor, and he will now get to terrorize the Eagles twice a year for the foreseeable future. Jermaine Whitehead could be one option.
Then there's former second-rounder Josh Jones, a player whose been frustrated with his playing time so far this season.
At the end of the day, the Packers are a less talented team heading into Week 9 than they were in Week 8.
Harbaugh downplayed how much of a jolt that Montgomery can give to the locker room.
