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.

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.

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.
Mar 9 - 5:09 PM's Ian Rapoport reports "multiple teams" are interested in free agent Eddie Lacy.

It's interesting, in theory, but Lacy's agent couldn't come up with any teams to leak. That's not promising. Lacy may have to wait out the first wave of free agency before finding a new home.
Mar 9 - 4:55 PM

The Packers will meet with free agent Eddie Lacy's player rep this week.

The Packers are interested in bringing Lacy back, but it's not clear if he'll be re-signed before free agency. Lacy is looking to rehab his value after struggling through weight issues and an ankle injury last year. A prove-it deal with the Packers makes sense for both sides.

Free agent Eddie Lacy revealed that he had wires, two screws, and a plate inserted into his right ankle during his November surgery.

"I messed up my deltoid (ligament) and widened the bone on my ankle, so I had to get two screws, two wires and a plate to fix it," Lacy disclosed. "(The deltoid) is the longest thing to heal." Lacy said he was given a 4-6 month timetable, and "February was the fourth month." While the operation was major, Lacy still expects to "be able to go out and do everything" by the start of OTAs.
Mar 1 - 12:03 AM

Speaking on Adam Schefter's "Know Them From Adam" podcast, impending free agent Eddie Lacy said the Packers have been "very vocal" about re-signing him.

It makes sense. Lacy could use a place where he feels comfortable to rehab his value after weight issues and injuries derailed his career, and the Packers could use cheap backfield help to pair with Ty Montgomery and perhaps a rookie. A one-year deal might be the best option for both sides. As for the ankle injury which ended his 2016, Lacy said he should be able to "do everything" by OTAs.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports free agent Eddie Lacy was "fined for not making weight over the last couple of seasons."

Per reporter Pete Dougherty, "it’s unclear how often or how much." As Dougherty points out, it clearly didn't work. Lacy lost weight to much fanfare last offseason, but Dougherty reports he gradually gained it back, and may have even been a few pounds up in January. Dougherty guesses Lacy could be limited to offers of $2 million plus incentives because of his weight and ankle issues. He'll be a fascinating case on the open market.
Feb 16 - 1:10 PM

According to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, free agent Eddie Lacy will likely have to settle for a one-year deal in the $2 million range.

Dougherty came to this conclusion after speaking with an agent who has studied the running back market. Lacy burst onto the scene by earning Rookie of the Year honors in 2013, but has watched his production dip while battling injuries and weight issues. The Packers cut James Starks, and ex-WR Ty Montgomery is unlikely to develop into an every-down back. Given the alternatives, bringing Lacy back on a cheap one-year deal might be the Packers' best option.
Feb 12 - 12:45 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he would "love to see" impending free agent Eddie Lacy re-signed.

McCarthy added Lacy is still recovering from a serious ankle injury, and no decision will be made until he "clears the medical threshold." Coming off an injury and with constant questions about his long-term conditioning, Lacy likely will not cost much to retain. A one-year, prove-it deal could work for both sides.
Jan 26 - 11:54 AM

Eddie Lacy (ankle, I.R.) said he plans to do a P90X regimen again this offseason.

Lacy remains in a walking boot and needs a scooter to get around nearly two months after undergoing major surgery. He's fully expected to be ready for the start of next season. It's unclear what team Lacy will be playing for, as he's set to be a free agent in March. ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky wonders if GM Ted Thompson could sign Lacy to a bargain deal.
