Montgomery, drafted in the third round by the Chicago Bears in 2019, had a breakout season in 2020 where he gained more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage (5th most that year), with 1,070 rushing yards, 10 touchdowns, and had the league’s fourth-best receiving yards by a running back (438). He was the only running back in the NFL last season with more than 1,000 rushing yards and over 400 receiving yards.

In Week 14 against Houston, he broke a career-long 80-yard touchdown run on the Bears' first play from scrimmage. It tied the longest scoring run by the Bears in the Super Bowl era (with Neil Anderson's 80-yard TD run vs. Green Bay on Nov. 27, 1988).

The following week at Minnesota, Montgomery set career-highs with 146 rushing yards on 32 carries with two touchdowns against the Vikings. He joined Hall of Fame legend Walter Payton as only the second player in Bears history with 30+ carries, 140+ rushing yards, and at least two rushing touchdowns in a single game.

Montgomery found the end zone for the sixth consecutive week in Week 17. He was the first Bears player to have scored in five straight weeks since Alshon Jeffery in 2014 and the first to rush for a TD in five straight since Neal Anderson in 1990.

Montgomery also posted a stellar rookie season in 2019 finishing with 889 rushing and 185 receiving yards to become the ninth Bears rookie to top 1,000 yards from scrimmage in their rookie season (1,074 yards from scrimmage) and the first since Jordan Howard in 2016.

His 2,582 yards from scrimmage through two seasons ranks fourth-most in Bears’ history during that span.

Before embarking on his NFL career, Montgomery was a two-time All American, and in 2019, earned Big 12 Male Sportsperson of the Year at Iowa State,

When he is not on the football field, Montgomery has a passion for philanthropic work, and he loves cooking and fishing, as well as, of course, gaming.
