When running back Eddie Lacy signed with the Seattle Seahawks they put certain weight clauses into his contract.
Lacy will be weighed three times during the year and if he makes his target weight, he gets some interesting incentives. Today was the first of those weigh-ins.
If Lacy hit the target weight of 255 pounds, he’d get paid $55,000. That’s a nice bonus to stay away from the China food.
According to his agent, Lacy came in at 253.
That’s kind of just squeaking by.
Eddie Lacy wears the minimum amount of flair. Fifteen pieces. The bare minimum.
In Lacy’s defense, he’s been laid up by an ankle injury that the Green Bay Packers forced on him for a while. He just started pool workouts back in February.
So Lacy still has a ways to go. The Packers always wanted him around 235. The Seahawks likely want him in the same area.
