However, after joining the Lions, Montgomery has gained a new appreciation for the team's work ethic and skill. He now believes that the Lions should not be taken lightly by any team.

“Right now there's no way I'd circle the Lions anymore,” Montgomery said. “Seeing how they work. – the way they practice. Seeing how high powered on both sides of the ball they are.

“There'll be no more circling the Lions by anybody.”
