The Green Bay Packers are pleased! They are pleased with running back Eddie Lacy’s weight loss, as expected.
According to one source, Lacy has lost between 15-18 pounds since the end of last season.
When he’s standing next to other NFL players, he looks tiny.
Here’s Lacy with fellow Alabama running backs Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson and Derrick Henry.
Ingram, who is on the far left, looks like he could fit a Lacy and a half inside of him. Henry, who is on the far right and is gearing up for the NFL Draft, looks like he could eat Lacy.
We’re not suggesting Lacy didn’t need to lose a few pounds, but he looks like a kicker compared to these other two guys.
This photo was taken this past weekend, by the way.
When Lacy showed up in the Packers locker room on Monday, everyone seemed to be impressed.
“I think Eddie looks good, man,” Packers defensive end Mike Daniels said. “We’ll see when the pads come on and everything, but I do think he’s a guy who rises to the occasion. He comes from a great program where they do things the right way. He came under a lot of fire, so I think he’s a guy that he got put on the spot and he responded.”
But can he still run through tacklers?
That’s the question we’ll be interested in finding out the answer to.
