Weight was an issue for Lacy last last season, so he did some extra work in the offseason -- particularly with P90X trainer Tony Horton -- in an effort to get in and stay in better shape in 2016. Lacy refused to disclose exactly how much he weighs when asked Tuesday, but the report says that he is slimmer than he was during OTAs, when he was already smaller then than he was at the end of last season. The report also notes that he is not back to his weight coming out of college, but the fact that he's several years older may be an impediment to ever reverting back to that number. Either way, it's good news for fantasy owners and
Lacy's weight has been a frequent subject of offseason discussion, with reports suggesting he's already dropped about 20 pounds since the end of his poor 2015 campaign. The Packers won't comment on his target weight, but it does seem the running back still has work to do, even though the team is pleased with his progress so far. Assuming he's in decent shape, Lacy is well positioned for a bounce-back season in what should be an efficient Green Bay offense.
Lacy's weight issue was called out by head coach Mike McCarthy at the end of last season, and judging by his appearance at the
NFL Network's Albert Breer suggests that the Green Bay Packers are going to be pleased with what they see in terms of Eddie Lacy 's physical fitness when the running back reports for the team's offseason program next week.
The report appears to affirm that Lacy's offseason workout routine under the direction of P90X founder Tony Horton has yielded positive results, with Breer describing the redistribution of weight on Lacy's frame as "remarkable." In any case, once the Packers' workouts commence on April 18, there should be confirmation, one way or the other, pertaining to the running back's conditioning level. In addition to adding quickness that could aid in his ability to avoid tackles, by shedding excess pounds, it's hoped that the running back -- who is officially listed by the team at 5-foot-11, 234 pounds -- can avoid the sort of nagging injuries that have hampered him of late. Assuming he is able to maintain his improved level of fitness, retaining his spot atop the Packers' running back depth chart, ahead of James Starks and John Crockett, is a likely outcome for Lacy, who turns 26 in June.
Head coach Mike McCarthy relayed at the NFL owners meetings Tuesday that Eddie Lacy 's offseason workout regimen is "going well," Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
McCarthy took a noted jab at Lacy's weight in the aftermath of the Green Bay Packers ' season-ending overtime loss at Arizona, stating that the running back needed to work on his conditioning. With the intention of shedding 30 pounds in the offseason, Lacy's workout routine under the direction of P90X founder Tony Horton has already yielded fruit, if a recent picture circulating the internet is any indication. As long as Lacy keeps up the pace, he could harken back to the player who racked up at least 1,100 yards rushing in both of his first two seasons, while reaching the end zone on 24 occasions.
