D.J. Montgomery joined the Michigan Panthers late in the USFL season, providing some depth down the stretch after losing a couple of pieces.
While Montgomery never recorded a reception for the Panthers, he did see some playing time in the playoffs. His lone target in the postseason against Pittsburgh resulted in an impressive catch down the sidelines – but he was ultimately ruled out of bounds.
The NFL is nothing new for D.J. He played for the New York Jets. Now, he’ll have an opportunity to pursue his NFL aspirations with the Indianapolis Colts.
Montgomery is the 37th USFL player to sign an NFL contract. Had it not been for the platform – and the national exposure – that the USFL provided him with, who knows if this opportunity would have come along.
