Redskins re-ink OL Will Montgomery

Via The Post,

The Redskins have announced the re-signing of offensive lineman Will Montgomery. Montgomery, a four-year veteran, appeared in all 16 games last season and started three at guard. He was one of five linemen to start at the right guard spot in the turbulent 2009 season.

The offensive linemen currently under contract for 2010 include: Montgomery, Derrick Dockery, Casey Rabach, Mike Williams, Stephon Heyer, Artis Hicks, Paul Fanaika, Kory Lichtensteiger, Clint Oldenburg, Edwin Williams and Will Robinson.

I think this is somewhat good news because Montgomery was a fairly decent pass blocker, especially on screens and quick 3 step drops where the Defense was showing blitz. In 16 games and 288 snaps, he only was burnt once for a sack.

His worst game in which he started was unquestionably against the Eagles, where his run blocking was atrocious. But again, he didn’t allow a sack. His best games were against KC and Atlanta — where between the two games his QB was only “pressured” once according to the official play by play.

Montgomery is still young, shows promise, and as much as the O-Line needs to be revamped, I think this was a good decision by the Redskins.
