The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta said his "best guess" is Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls will "take a fairly equal share of the basedown carries."
Condotta prefaced his prediction by saying performance will dictate the carry split, but his guess is still notable after the Seahawks paid Lacy like a starting running back in March. Rawls has earned praise for his offseason work, however, while Lacy has been sidelined recovering from an ankle injury. With weight, health, and now workload concerns, Lacy is one of the riskiest early-round picks this year, but his upside could be worth it. Jun 22 - 11:21 AM

Eddie Lacy has met his June weight target, coming in under 250 pounds.

Monday was the second of seven weigh-ins. Lacy nets $55,000 every time he hits the target. The Seahawks want Lacy to be at 245 for the regular season. Lacy appears to be taking his conditioning as seriously as ever.

Eddie Lacy's next weigh-in is on Monday.

This will be the second of Lacy's seven weigh-ins. He'll hit a $55,000 incentive if he weighs under 250 pounds. Lacy met his first goal last month, checking in two pounds below his target weight of 255. The ex-Packer recently began the P90X 30-day challenge in an effort to shed weight.

Eddie Lacy is doing the P90X 30-day challenge in his latest effort to drop weight.

Lacy recently weighed 253. His goal is to get to 245 by Week 1. "The 30-day challenge, it’s pretty much something else that I can do to help me reach my goal, reach what I have to do to stay in condition and be in better condition," Lacy said. Lacy earns $55,000 in incentives if he weighs 250 in July and August, and $55,000 each time he weighs in below 245 during the season.

Eddie Lacy (ankle) is expected to be cleared for training camp.

Lacy still isn't fully over the ankle injury that IR'd him last year. Coach Pete Carroll expects him to be ready for the start of camp next month. Lacy weighed in at 253-pounds earlier this offseason, but needs to get down to 245 for Week 1.

Coach Pete Carroll expects the Seahawks' running game to come "roaring right back" in 2017.

"With the quarterback being a mess and the running back situation, everybody being banged up, we were just unable to find it," said Carroll of last year's disappointment. "So I think we'll come roaring right back at it." Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise have both recovered from their injuries while free agent signing Eddie Lacy was brought in to take the lead role on early downs. Seattle's backfield looks good on paper but Rawls, Prosise and Lacy all carry significant risk heading into the 2017 fantasy campaign.

Eddie Lacy's contract includes bonuses for games played and rushing yards.

Lacy's weight incentives have gotten the attention, but he will also earn bonuses for on-field performance. Starting at 800 yards, the bonuses run through 1,200, and are worth a total of $1.3 million. Lacy will also get $62,500 for each week he's on the 46-man roster. It's a smart contract structure for a player with Lacy's history of injury and conditioning issues.

Eddie Lacy checked in at 253 pounds during his first weigh-in with the Seahawks.

The NFL offseason is amazing. Lacy needed to weigh under 255 pounds to earn a $55,000 bonus. The Seahawks want Lacy to be under 250 by the summer and maintain a playing weight of 245 during the season.
May 15 - 12:58 PM

New Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy's contract includes monthly weight clauses.

Lacy gets $55,000 for every month he meets the team's target weight. It's 255 for May, 250 for June and August, and 245 for the season. It jibes with Pete Carroll's Tuesday assertion that the Seahawks want Lacy to play in the 240s. Even with Lacy currently in the 260s, they're perfectly reasonable goals. Lacy will be on the wrong side of a career crossroads if he can't get in shape this season.
Mar 16 - 7:45 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll insists he isn't worried about new RB Eddie Lacy's weight, and expects him to play in the 240s in 2017.

Lacy is reportedly in the 260s right now. "I want him big," Carroll said. "(He's a) big back in classic fashion. He's an exciting guy to add to the mix." Carroll added he hopes Lacy is motivated in a contract year. Lacy runs with an uncommon violence when he's in shape, not dissimilar to Marshawn Lynch, or Thomas Rawls for that matter. The 'Hawks clearly have no illusions about Lacy's weight.
Mar 14 - 2:47 PM

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports new Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy weighed 267 pounds at one of his three free agent visits.

Stunning. It's unclear if this was Lacy's weight at his Seahawks visit, but it doesn't make much difference. The 'Hawks knew they were signing a running back who is wildly out of shape, and has been for some time. Clearly coach Pete Carroll believes he can whip Lacy into form. Listed at 234, Lacy has enormous upside — no pun intended — when he's in shape and healthy, but he was neither in 2016. Lacy turns 27 in June. Hopefully a light turns on this summer.
Mar 14 - 1:07 PM

Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy, formerly of the Packers, to a one-year, $5.55-million contract with $3 million fully guaranteed.

Despite a quiet market overall for running backs, Lacy landed a quality deal. $5.55 million puts him among the top-ten paid backs at the position, and he will have a chance to cash in with a long-term deal next offseason if he is able to stay healthy and in shape. The money also suggests the Seahawks see him as their primary back, which is terrible news for the fantasy prospects of Thomas Rawls and to a lesser extent C.J. Prosise. With the Seahawks out of the market for a big back, Adrian Peterson and Latavius Murray will have to look elsewhere for work.

Free agent Eddie Lacy left his Vikings visit without a deal.

Lacy told reporters the meeting was "cool," then made his way onto a plane to fly back to Green Bay, where he will meet with Packers brass on Monday. Lacy also visited the Seahawks. He is likely getting incentive-laden offers.
Mar 12 - 6:36 PM

Free agent Eddie Lacy is scheduled to visit the Packers after his meetings with the Seahawks and Vikings.

It'll be a busy weekend for Lacy. He's in Seattle today and Saturday and will then head to Minnesota on Saturday and Sunday. After that, he'll wrap up his free agent tour by visiting the Packers. Lacy is one of the bigger names left in free agency, but he missed most of last season with an ankle injury. The 26-year-old will also face questions about his fluctuating weight.
Mar 10 - 2:00 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Eddie Lacy will visit the Seahawks and Vikings.

Lacy is also "visiting" the Packers, whom know Lacy better than anybody. Lacy can be a punishing, violent runner when he's right, but has yet to keep his weight under control. His ankles have also been an issue. If healthy and committed to staying in shape, he could be a difference maker in either Minnesota or Seattle.
