Eddie Lacy gets some serious 'fattitude' after unfortunate photo
Every year we wait to see which NFL players show up for camp out of shape. However, we might have a bit of a controversy on our hands. A photo surfaced on Monday of Packers rookie running back Eddie Lacy. Wow, from the looks of it, he seems to have chowed down on far too many bacon donuts during the offseason:
Uh, it looks like Eddie Lacy put on a little weight. Shades of Lendale White? pic.twitter.com/oK2r6Su9N2 — Smart Football (@smartfootball) July 29, 2013
Yikes, that's definitely not flattering. But wait. Did we jump the gun on this?

By the way, if you need further proof, take a look at this Vine from a recent practice:
It should be noted that several morons Twitter users couldn't wait to jump the gun and declare Eddie Lacy a complete bust:
