Montgomery was released on March 5, 2010.[2] In five years with the team he started eight of 56 games, recording 123 tackles and five sacks.

Montgomery signed with the Minnesota Vikings on March 29, 2010.[3] The Vikings released Montgomery on September 4, 2010, as the team made final cuts to set its 53-man roster.[4]

Second stint with Packers[edit]

Montgomery again joined the Packers on October 15, 2010.[5] He was later released on November 2, 2010 after appearing in only two games for Green Bay.[6]
