Running back Eddie Lacy stepped on the scales for the Seattle Seahawks on Monday and weighed fewer than 250 pounds, reported ESPN senior National Football League writer Jeremy Fowler. According to an ESPN report, the 5th-year pro earned the incentive money Monday tied to his weight. In March, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Lacy weighed 267 pounds at one of his free-agent team visits. Lacy earned another $55,000 in May for weighing in at 253 pounds.

Let's be honest here, one order of General Tso's chicken could've put Lacy over the 250 mark and cost him $55,000.

Lacy has been participating in OTAs on a limited basis as he continues to recover from an ankle injury.

If Lacy maintains the same commitment towards rushing the ball as he has in meeting his weight goals, Seattle may have found their Lynch replacement. Lacy's new contract with the Seahawks includes a total of seven weigh-ins in order to keep him at an optimal weight. At the end of the day, it helps me personally, too, so why not? But when Lacy had a clause built into his contract to monitor his fitness with regular weigh-ins, it was clear where the concern was about him.
