Earlier in the week, Eddie Lacy suggested he would be ready to resume football activities by April after recovering from ankle surgery. Lacy has begun working out in Alabama.
Ian Rapoport says Lacy will be ready to go for OTAs.
According to someone who has seen his foot, Lacy should be healthy for OTAs https://t.co/8J80DqJAG8
That all jives, as the Green Bay Packers’ offseason workouts begin on April 17.
The interesting thing here is Lacy doesn’t yet have a contract. He’ll hit free agency next week if the Packers don’t re-sign him before that.
All indications are they will. Lacy said the Packers have been in contact with his agent and there’s strong mutual interest in a return.
Coach Mike McCarthy spoke to that in his combine press conference.
“We’d love to have Eddie back,” McCarthy said. “Eddie’s working through his rehab. He’s working down at the University of Alabama. Had a chance to visit with him about a week back.”
And there would seem to be another strong indication the Packers will re-sign Lacy. McCarthy wouldn’t be checking up on him if the team had no intention of bringing him back.
