Lacy, 26, has been a huge disappointment the past two years after rushing for more than 1,100 yards in each of his first two years with the Packers. Weight gain and an ankle injury played significant roles in his struggles, but he’s hoping to put those issues behind him.
He reportedly hasn’t curbed his weight issue just yet, though, weighing 267 for one of the teams he visited.
RB Eddie Lacy visited Sea (his new team), Minn and GB in the last wk. For one of the three teams Lacy weighed 267. Listed last year at 234.
Unfortunately, Seattle’s offensive line is not nearly as strong as Green Bay’s and he’ll have serious competition in Rawls and Prosise. It remains to be seen how the Seahawks will manage each player’s workload, but it’ll be difficult to get all of them touches.
Seattle also expressed interest in free agents Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles but ultimately settled on the younger and likely cheaper Lacy.
