The Detroit Lions have been re-signing several of their key free agents and made a couple of splash signings at cornerback, but on Tuesday night, they went to the offensive side of the ball to deliver their latest cannonball—signing running back David Montgomery to a three-year contract.

Much like Jamaal Williams—the player Montgomery is expected to replace—Montgomery is a power back who thrives between the tackles. He is capable of playing all three downs, showing terrific hands as a receiver and solid efficiency as a pass protector. Montgomery is most known for his ability to break tackles and is one of the best at it in the league right now.

Per PFF, over his four seasons in the NFL (51 starts), Montgomery has broken 185 tackles, the fifth most in the league over that time. Per friend of POD Brett Whitefield (Director of Fantasy Points Data), Montgomery was tied for first in forced tackle rate, among all backs with 125+ carries last season.
