Eddie Lacy meets first weight target with Seahawks

Print

Eddie Lacy is on target in his fitness plan.

The running back signed an incentive-laden deal with the Seattle Seahawks this spring that included weight clauses. The first benchmark arrived on Monday.

So far, so good.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, meanwhile, sounds like a guy who likes curves.

Last week, Lacy sent a tweet detailing a 30-day workout plan set to begin on June 1 as he attempts to enter training camp in the best shape of his life. That dedication to fitness had to begin sooner for Lacy to cash in on some of the incentive money in his new deal.

Lacy's weight has been something of an ongoing fascination of the football cognoscenti. Back in March, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Lacy weighed in at 267 for one of his free-agent team visits.

Two months later, he's down a dozen. Last season, the Packers listed Lacy at 234, which, c'mon.
