The weight of Packers running back Eddie Lacy has been a topic of conversation for years, but no one has been able to pin down exactly how much he weighs. A good guess, however, is that he’s a biscuit short of 260. At least.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel pegs Lacy’s weight as at least 25 pounds heavier than the 234 the Packers listed him as, or at least 259 pounds.
With the Packers reportedly wanting Lacy to lose 30 pounds, he may actually be north of 260. Lacy weighed 231 at the 2013 Combine before the Packers drafted him in the second round, and the team probably wants him down around that weight again.
In 2014, Lacy brushed off reports that he was overweight and had a very strong season. In 2015, he again brushed off reports that he was overweight, but the Packers grew frustrated as Lacy had career lows in carries (187), yards (758), yards per carry (4.05), touchdowns (three), catches (20) and receiving yards (188).
Packers coach Mike McCarthy has spoken openly about Lacy needing to shape up. The Packers are hoping he’ll be thinner and ready to feast on opposing defenses in 2016.
