Report: Packers want Eddie Lacy to lose a stunning amount of weight
Guess that's the end of all that Chinese food.
Despite the excessive proliferation of jokes about Eddie Lacy’s weight, it’s become clear the Packers really do prefer that their star running back loses some weight. Mike McCarthy said as much following the season.
But the amount of weight is pretty stunning. According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Packers want Lacy to lose 30 pounds.
According to Rapoport, Lacy is cool with the request. (He's already getting offers from P90x this offseason to lose weight.)
After a strong finish to 2014, many people projected a huge season for the former Alabama standout. But 2015 was not that -- Lacy rushed for just 758 yards and was benched for James Starks at one point during the season.
What’s weird is that Lacy hasn’t technically gained weight, according to the Internet.
Lacy weighs 234 pounds per the Packers’ website and, per the NFL’s combine page, he weighed 231 when he came into the NFL.
Now that would indicate Lacy has gained just three pounds since coming into the NFL. It’s entirely possible these figures are not … accurate.
