The skinny on tryout G/C Will Montgomery

Here is the skinny on guard/tackle Will Montgomery who the Jets brought in for a tryout on Wednesday:

"He can play in this league,"said Panthers beat writer Pat Yasinskas of the Charlotte Observer "He doesn't have the great physical skills, but isn't horrible in that regard. He makes up for it with technique and is a real smart guy. [The Panthers front office] really hated to cut him, but he was a victim of numbers. Honestly, I'm not saying Jets sign him and pop him into the starting lineup. But I think he's one of those guys that hangs around as a backup for a year or two. Then, there's an opening and he gets a chance to start and he can hold a job for four or five years.
