Eddie Lacy passes second weight check, collects another $55000


Lacy's contract with the Seahawks also contains seven potential weight bonuses worth a total of $385,000. Lacy's struggles with his weight were a constant theme of his time in Green Bay.

The weigh-in was Lacy's second such opportunity to earn a bonus from the Seahawks. He had to be at 250 pounds or less on Monday.

During OTAs, Lacy explained why he chose to accept the weight incentives in his contract. To earn the money, Lacy will have to weigh 245 pounds or less in each month from September through December. The 2013 Pro Bowl selection with the Green Bay Packers always has been a bigger, downhill runner, but there were concerns he was getting too big, sacrificing speed and agility in the process.

The Seahawks are still looking for a running back to stay healthy enough to replace Marshawn Lynch. After breaking out his first two National Football League seasons, Lacy had over 2,200 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns during that time, he rushed for just three touchdowns and 1,011 total yards his finish two years with the Packers. In 2015, Rawls was excellent before being injured.

The 27-year-old signed a one-year contract with the Seahawks in March that includes seven monthly weigh-in incentives created to keep Lacy at an optimum weight. Neither could running back C.J. Prosise.

Asked what kinds of foods he has cut out to shed weight, Lacy said, "What kinds of things?"
