Packers RB Eddie Lacy on dropping weight: 'I'm cool'
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Packers running back Eddie Lacy is an intimidating figure. The team lists him generously at 230 pounds, which makes people wonder how long can a running back that big keep up in the NFL. Lacy's not worried about that, nor does he mind his weight, per the Journal Sentinel.

"I'm cool," Lacy said after asked about the possibility of dropping some weight.

Lacy, unlike some of his teammates, took the offseason to simply rest the wear and tear off his body from last year's punishment.

"It took my body a long time," Lacy said. "For all the hits and stuff to go away. Resting definitely helps and after that I got after it a little bit."

Lacy rushed for 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns last season.

Packers RB Eddie Lacy won't hit the brakes in open field this year
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The statistics say one thing. Packers featured back Eddie Lacy says another.

Lacy finished sixth in the NFL last year with 49 missed tackles, according to Pro Football Focus, which further reveals that his 690 yards after contact was topped only by four others. But he knows what he wants to improve on in 2015.

"Finishing runs," he declared to the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "A lot of times I'll get into the secondary and I'll stop my feet or, as my coach likes to say, 'Hit the brakes.' ... This year, I don't want to do do that. ... I want to get to the secondary and if there's a guy there, whoever it may be, instead of me hitting the air brakes, I want to push the gas and make it harder on him and maybe he'll miss a tackle and I'll break a long one."

Lacy was among the most productive all-around backs in the league a year ago. He finished with 1,139 yards rushing on a 4.6 YPC average and added 427 yards receiving. He scored 13 touchdowns.

Packers want to keep RB Eddie Lacy fresh this season
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is working on ways to keep running back Eddie Lacy fresh this season, reports the Journal Sentinel.

McCarthy had talks with Lacy at the end of the last two seasons talking about his number of snaps and what he expected of the running back.

"I really felt that last year's conversation was more important than this year's, the ability to make a huge jump from Year One to Two, being a three-down player, that was something we stressed from Day One, and I thought he delivered," McCarthy said at the NFL owners meetings this week.

The head coach liked the way that the team used Lacy last season, limiting his snaps early in the year before increasing them as the season wore on.

"Maybe not run attempts," McCarthy said of hitting the target he set. "But I thought we were really smart the way we used him....I thought his pass protection he made a huge jump, and his ability to play out of the backfield.

"Eddie has excellent hands, and just his understand and his feel with Aaron, he definitely made a step."

In his first two seasons in the NFL, the 24-year-old has 2,317 yards rushing and 20 touchdowns. He has also added 77 receptions for 684 yards and four touchdown catches.
