Eddie Lacy’s weight estimated in the 260 range

Eddie Lacy, Sylvester Williams, Chris Harris AP

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.

    No more of that China food, or you’ll be an Olineman soon

    The coaches have put him on notice. He has to slim down.

    That’s something that can happen.

    Trying to get a mediocre at best NFL QB with tiny hands to throw the ball accurately more than 10 yards is harder, but thankfully Minnesota is the one with THAT problem.

    Take it from a guy who knows – whatever number a fat guy is willing to publicly admit, add 20 pounds to it…

    estimated? they have scales nowadays….use one that they weigh cattle with

  6. shlort says: Feb 5, 2016 12:32 PM

    Lacy is obviously obese. I wonder what kinds of numbers he puts up if he gets in shape? He has a lot mere experience now. He could go for 1500 yards if he were 225 with a bit of speed and endurance.

    If the Packers are hell bent on basically leaking his weight and saying yes ‘fat’, just trade him away and be done with it.

    If they truly wanted him to lose some weight, they’d keep this in house.

    Obviously there’s a little more to this.

    We can’t tell models/actresses that they are starting to look a little thick, but we can make it a headline during Superbowl week that Lacy is 30+ bigger than his boss wants him to be.

  23. weepingjebus says: Feb 5, 2016 12:44 PM

    If he weighs more than the Packers are saying, the Packers are cheating. That’ll be $5 million.

  24. Kelly's Chronicles says: Feb 5, 2016 12:45 PM

    Yikes. Even the great running back Earl Campbell didn’t play at that weight and tackling him was no joke. McCarthy was right to call him out. And I am a Packer fan….

    This is shocking to nobody that has eyes.

    Dude looks like Bettis in his last couple years.

  27. bassplucker says: Feb 5, 2016 12:51 PM

    I can think of two, maybe 3 RBs in the history of the league who were effective at 260 or higher. One was Bettis and the other was Christian Okoye. Maybe Ironhead Heyward. That’s it.

  28. greenbaychicksarefat says: Feb 5, 2016 12:51 PM

    Chinese buffet Lacy is the fat joke of the 2010’s.

  30. bridgeh2o says: Feb 5, 2016 12:53 PM

    The 260 is an ESTIMATE. I believe he is a few donuts over that.

    I stated he was probably close to 270, and a few insecure puke fans asserted that my estimate was not even close……….hmmm……..bridgh2o says to eat crow.

    I won’t ask Lacy to eat anything…….he has already done that.

  31. ebdug says: Feb 5, 2016 12:55 PM

    Better watch it, Lacy, at this rate you’ll be carrying as much weight as Jerome Bettis or Marion Motley.

  32. crownofthehelmet says: Feb 5, 2016 12:56 PM

    Betty’s is insulted at the comparisons. While a bit portly, Bettis had quick feet and at least could outrun a nose tackle. Not Lacy.

  33. eagles1960 says: Feb 5, 2016 12:56 PM

    Whoo tons of fun.

  34. immafubared says: Feb 5, 2016 12:58 PM

    I have to laugh because at the start of the season I posted on some packer blog where I love to rag on them, that lacy looked like the pop and fresh doughboy and no one got it.

    Later ol Mikey came out with an excuse that Lacy had an undisclosed ankle injury. Ya, he was so fat his ankles wouldn’t support his weight and on this team it seems to be a recurring event.

    The Packers are probably the worst conditioned team in football. I saw them announce their trainer at Family night and I think he was 23. I bet he came cheap.

    This is the slowest team in football too. Mike loves the big bodies as if football is still three yard runs and a cloud of dust. The guy is so out of it he should be fired.

  35. aa1829 says: Feb 5, 2016 12:58 PM

    Big Packer fan here. With that said, I have lost all confidence in him. He looked to me like he had no heart last year. Run up to the a big pile of bodies and stop dead. No turning left or right, just stop and wait to be tackled, and that long run he had in the playoffs, he looked like he was begging someone to tackle him. Also, when he runs up to the line and stops, McFatheads brilliant idea is to run the same dive into the line 12 more times. If it doesn’t work the first 10 times, keep trying.

  36. honeybadger14 says: Feb 5, 2016 12:58 PM

    He needs to deflate.

  37. petersjeffrey36 says: Feb 5, 2016 1:00 PM

    few days away from the SB and you guys are concerned with lacy’s weight… not to mention at 260 he probably is still faster then 90% of the people viewing this page right now.
    .. that aside he has shown he performs best and stays healthier when he is between 220-235 so that should be his goal

  38. cheeseisfattening says: Feb 5, 2016 1:00 PM

    260 is less than your average cheesehead but still too big for an NFL RB.

    I would say stick a fork in him he is done based on his past effort and despite the Packer’s brilliant plan of motivation through public fat shaming.

  39. immafubared says: Feb 5, 2016 1:00 PM

    I will be shocked if he comes into camp at 231 ish. I say the guy likes to eat and doesn’t like to work out and if so, put a fork in him. Sorry I meant give him a fork and send him packing

    Must’ve been doing the Jamarcus Russell old country Buffet Offseason Workout plan

  41. vancouversportsbro says: Feb 5, 2016 1:03 PM

    When he first came in the league he was probably 220ish.

    I’m not trying to sound elitist or anything but his job is sort of to stay in shape. Shows how lazy and unmotivated he is.

  47. zerotrophiessince1961 says: Feb 5, 2016 1:15 PM

    You know what’s funny? The biggest question mark facing the Packers offense going into 2016 is the weight of their starting RB. This shows several things:

    1. The QB’s “down” year still featured over 30 TDs, almost 4000 yards and under 15 INTs.
    2. The WRs will be fine with Jordy back and the growth of the young guys
    3. The OL had a down year, yet still ranked in the top 10 most efficient units in the league.

    Wow. GB fans are so spoiled. It must suck to be a fan of a team that hasn’t had an elite QB for more than 1 year in a row since Fran Tarkenton.

  48. leatherface2012 says: Feb 5, 2016 1:19 PM

    get him down to 180

  49. steelerben says: Feb 5, 2016 1:20 PM

    It was apparent all season that Lacy was not himself. He was clearly struggling with speed and agility because he gained so much weight.

    Everyone that has suggested the Pack get rid of him is nuts. Hire the guy a live in personal trainer and nutritionist. Get him to drop the weight, increase the strength and endurance, and return to being an elite back. It is completely worth the investment.

  50. shepwp1 says: Feb 5, 2016 1:20 PM

    I’m so sick of this Lacy weight issue. Number one, MM should NEVER have made this public- it should’ve been handled man-to-man. Zero class from McCarthy on that one. Is Lacy’s weight the reason GB didn’t make it to the SB? Heck no! So from what I hear, if Eddy doesn’t lose weight and Nelson re-injures his knee, the Packers should just forfeit the season- why bother playing any games at all?

  51. floydsknobbin says: Feb 5, 2016 1:22 PM

    Keep it in house, eh?

    They tried that all season and every time the subject of his weight came up, Eddie said it was not a problem for him.

    Apparently he was not taking the continued advice he was being given… So what else to do with a player who has obvious upside?

    When the subject came up at end of season it was during the last presser where year in review given.
    Obviously Eddie still was not responding which is why a week or so later you get the public shaming….. And by all indications, Eddie does not like the negativity he now sees and is fInally at least considering he has a problem.

    There are two ways this can go:
    1. He takes it seriously and shows up in prime condition…
    2. He continues to blind himself and ends up missing out the big payday he worked whole life for.

    I say #1, no way he blows his payday.

  52. purpleguy says: Feb 5, 2016 1:24 PM

    The problem with Lacy isn’t with what’s hanging over his belt — its with what is (or isn’t) between his ears.

  53. 4sacroc says: Feb 5, 2016 1:25 PM

    You know what’s funny? The biggest question mark facing the Packers offense going into 2016 is the weight of their starting RB. ==================

    More like Ron Dayne, Marcus Dupree and Trent Richardson for a Lacy comparison.

  56. bam5239 says: Feb 5, 2016 1:37 PM

    Man just turned 25 I’m guessing that his metabolism is starting to slow and his conditioning isn’t keeping pace with his diet. I’m not a Packer fan but you can still treat this man like a human being. If he fails to shape up then yeah the criticism will be justified. So far, however, he’s only had one ineffective season due to his weight.

  57. fartweasel says: Feb 5, 2016 1:43 PM

    Stark is actually a better back than lacy, if he could learn how to hang on to the ball and Crockett looks to have some skills. Lacy is/was overrated and will out of the league in a few more years.

  58. godofwine330 says: Feb 5, 2016 1:46 PM

    Eddie Lazy – this is a nickname I gave him when he was drafted. He blew up the, which PFT posted a side-by-side picture. He doesn’t have the discipline. Working against him is the fact that he is playing the most replaceable position in football – running back – he better shape up or ship out

    ///////////////////////////////////////////////
    You might be right, but I respectfully disagree. I think they tried to do things “in House”, they didn’t work so they are publicly shaming him. He’s in a contract year next year, if this doesn’t light a fire under him, then I agree with you, be done with him.

  60. packergator says: Feb 5, 2016 1:51 PM

    Another Bama RB – post-Trent Richardson – with entitlement issues.

  61. jwcarlson says: Feb 5, 2016 2:03 PM

    “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)”

    I love the we’re expected to believe that they called plays in which to hand the ball off to Eddie and he was like “no no no, I don’t want any more carries today”.

    And calling it a “career low” in YPC is pretty disingenuous, it is basically a ‘tie’ with his career worst of 4.1 YPC his rookie year. Let’s not act like he dropped off to Trent Richardson levels.

    Certainly Eddie has some work to do and he needs to dedicate himself to football a little more to land a contract with as much meat on the bones as possible because these days running backs don’t really get a 3rd contract it seems like.

    But let’s not pretend that Eddie can control how many carries he gets (other than by performance). And let’s not manipulate the data to make it say what we want instead of the truth. Hopefully he gets himself in gear.

  67. bordner says: Feb 5, 2016 2:25 PM

    I was at the playoff game in AZ and our seats were down around the 20 where Eddie basically ran out of gas on that long run. From where we were sitting, I could see the look on his face as he turned around, looking for someone to tackle him because he was too out of shape to run any further. Anyone even remotely in shape scores on that play.

    It would be one thing if he was a bruising runner who could consistently pick up the short yardage needed for a first down or a TD, but that isn’t even the case. All that weight isn’t doing anyone any good in the shape that it’s in.

    He can still be effective as a big back, but he needs to lose some weight and just get in shape, and then the Packers need to feed him the football and not the China food.

    ——————————————————————-
    I have no problem with McCarthy bringing this up publicly. I’m sure the coaching staff had been on him since training camp to lose weight and likely even fined him. Motivation and a lack of love for football seems to be the root of Lacy’s problem. He was told during his exit interview that he needed to get back to 230 or he wouldn’t play. He was then publicly shamed about his weight. There’s not much more the Packers can do other than drafting an early round running back. My guess is it’s 50-50 that he comes to camp in shape and gets a good second contract.

    His coach, who is telling him he needs to lose weight, weighs twice as much as him.

  73. bullcharger says: Feb 5, 2016 2:54 PM

    Public shame is never a good strategy to help someone. Why go public? Just tell him to get in shape and cut him if he doesn’t.

    That’s a sign of a coach that can’t get the players to do what he asks.

    Good for Lacy if he shows up in shape now, but don’t be surprised if he leaves the Packers when he can and goes on to succeed elsewhere.

    On the positive side they may need a guard next year and at 260 he’d be quick at that position.

  78. nyneal says: Feb 5, 2016 4:10 PM

    Lacy has it all in front of him. He can get in shape and get back to being an effective NFL RB, or he can eat himself out of the league.

    Judging by what I have seen, I’d bet on the latter.

    I hear that “The Deflator” is seeking employment.

  80. petersjeffrey36 says: Feb 5, 2016 4:33 PM

    so the theme is he is done & ineffective.. but he just averaged 4.1 ypc at 260 (more likely 270) lbs mean while James Starks hasnt been able to maintain above 4 for two years straight, like Eddy has in his first three years in the NFL, will he perform better at a lower weight, one would hope.. but the packers have struggled to find a consisstant RB since Green left (who wasn’t that great anyway), may be they bring in some compitition but its not realistic to think he’s done in GB

  81. fwippel says: Feb 5, 2016 4:35 PM

    Nutrisystem, SlimFast, Weight Watchers. There are plenty of options for Lacy. He and McCarthy should have a friendly contest to see who can lose the most weight.

    eddie lacy can make a killing doing neutra system weight loss commercials. the packers should draft derrick henry and kenyan drake from bama and let starks go. this will send a huge message to eddie lacy and give them a potentially great running attack as aaron rodgers gets older and comes back from another surgery.

    I dunno… it was pretty entertaining that last game when he broke out for a sure TD then watching him run out of gas like he was a 360lb nose tackle on his first INT trying to make a pick 6 happen and blowing it

    hilarious actually

  88. nyneal says: Feb 5, 2016 5:23 PM

    Shades of that Ohio State running back Denver spent a third round pick on. Forget his name (Clarice?). Great college career, but showed up in camp slow and fat. Shanahan caught him in camp sipping Grey Goose during sprint drills. Never played a down for Denver. True story. Your talents only get you so far.

    He weighs more than all the Packers squad combine. Lol

    Lacy, see Brady this off season and inquire about his “deflating” program

  97. stellarperformance says: Feb 5, 2016 7:32 PM

    Whatever. Lacy and his poor decision-making has not negatively affected the Packers in the last three years as badly as Peterson and his poor decision-making has affected the Vikings in the same period of time.

    Which of the two teams qualified for the post season each of those three years? Which running back has rushed for over 400 yards in the postseason in those same three years, and which rushed for 25?

    Poor choices by each man had consequences. Plus, Lacy earns a fraction of what Peterson is paid. Which player should be getting the most verbal abuse?

    No brainer. Lacy can lose the weight, if he chooses to. Peterson is never going to change.

    The vaunted Viking defense couldn’t stop Rodgers, who ran for 100 yards against them.

    He only ran for 100 yards or over 3 times all season.

    Keep it in house, eh?

    They tried that all season and every time the subject of his weight came up, Eddie said it was not a problem for him.

    Apparently he was not taking the continued advice he was being given… So what else to do with a player who has obvious upside?

    When the subject came up at end of season it was during the last presser where year in review given.
    Obviously Eddie still was not responding which is why a week or so later you get the public shaming
    ——————————
    So what you are saying is McCarthy was not competently able to handle this in house and turned to the crutch of public shaming to get the job done.

    Don’t worry Packer fans, I am sure no other NFL player is paying attention to how this is being handled. 😛

  102. aaronitout12 says: Feb 5, 2016 9:04 PM

    Yeah, if only Lacy was 20 years younger…..then Adrian Peterson could WHIP him into shape.

    You know what’s funny? The biggest question mark facing the Packers offense going into 2016 is the weight of their starting RB. ==================

    RB? Really … Try o-line depth … No TE worth a lick on roster …No punishing ILB since Desmond Bishop … Need 1-2 more receivers … You clowns believe Abbrederis and Janis are the answer because of a hail mary finale … Please…
    ————————-
    Ah yes. The ole’ “They have a couple problem spots on their roster so they must be awful” argument. Classic straw man.

    Look – Were GBs TEs bad this year? Yes. Could they use a seam splitting TE – like all but about 5 teams in the league – yes.

    Are GBs ILBs sub par without CM3 there? Yes. But I’m willing to see what Jake Ryan can bring in year 2. He showed flashes. And don’t forget Barrington is coming back next year. He played VERY well in 2014. PS: Defense didn’t come into my earlier post, but answering the points brought up is the polite thing to do.:)

    Regarding backup OL – it’s hard enough to get 5 viable starters in this league. The fact that OL 6/7/8’s ability comes into question just shows the talent and depth on GBs roster across the board. GBs starting 5 is as good as any teams in the league when healthy. And Tretter is a great 6th man.

    Regarding WR – Any team missing their 1500 yard, 14 TD WR is going to suffer. Jordy will be back and still in his prime for a handful more years next year. Janis, Abby, Montgomery, and yes even Adams, will all get better or be replaced. I am not worried about the WRs.

    That leaves Lacy’s weight and grooming replacements at OG and possibly OT. They’re certainly real issues, but overall compared to most teams? Not bad.

    GB’s O severely underachieved this year due to poor coaching moves in the offseason by MM, injuries, and Lacy’s weight. GB has finished in the top 10 in offense every year for the past 10 – until 2015. GB has the 5th youngest starting 22 and 3rd youngest team overall. The window is most certainly NOT closing.

    And the team to the west? Their best offensive player is on the wrong side of 30 at a position that historically ages very poorly. And Bustwater is clearly not the answer. This year was a fluke – a fluke in which GB still went farther in the playoffs than wide left.😛

    All this proves that it’s going to be right back to being a super bowl favorite for GB again next year. The NFCN crown is a given.

    Case closed.😀

    Remember when McCarthy said Lacy would beat the rushing record that year (2014)? At the rate he is going, he will be lucky to beat the single year rushing record if you combine 3 years for him!

    Keep in mind though, even if his weight is North of 260, he is still 40lbs less than the avg Packer Fan who is screaming for more cheese curds and a beer!!!

    Just what they need a FAT COACH, telling him to SLIM DOWN! Thank goodness we don’t have that problem with the Vikings!!!

  108. uglydingo says: Feb 5, 2016 10:57 PM

    Eddie is a bit overweight. This is not a new story. Anyone who follows the NFL knew it all season. So what! There are a stack of other players who are also overweight, but they don’t get the same attention.

  109. jbvikes says: Feb 6, 2016 12:04 AM

    I’m trying to figure how Tokyo turned “Lardgate” into a story about Teddy’s hand size. Am I missing a Segway here??

    As a Packer fan I love the Feastmode nickname. First time I heard that (probably last summer) I laughed my butt off. I don’t know if Lacy will lose the weight or not however at this point I believe the Packers were right to go public (nuclear) about the issue.

  111. igocommando says: Feb 6, 2016 2:44 AM

    Too funny. “Fat, drunk , and stupid is no way to go through life, son”. Don’t know about the drunk part, but Eddie sure has the other two bases covered. Really covered, kinda like an eclipse.

    “Eddie says he’s on a seafood diet…….except it’s his version of it, he “sees food and eats it”. ”

    BAHAHAAHHHAHA. Seriously as has already been said, anyone who saw him get to the 2nd level then stop and wait to be tackled with no one in between him and the end zone knows he’s obese.

    He seems to have confused the difference between a power back whose weight is muscle and propels him forward and a big back eating their way to being an obese back whose extra weight in fat is just an anchor that makes him too lazy to run into the endzone.

    It’s incredible with all the money staff and programs teams have this guy is not being helped by a nutritionist (or maybe he can’t hear them over the sound of himself eating). Cut out the poisonous wheat, sugar and garbage fast food in general and the weight would start coming off real quick.

    Hell even going to a beginner class at any decent muay thai gym would see him atleast 10 pounds lighter, of course he would immediately go feastmode right after

  114. stellarperformance says: Feb 6, 2016 6:37 AM

    Over the last three years he performed as effectively as the Peterson/Asiata combo and at a fraction of the cost. Three years. And he can lose the weight easily and return to form (if he chooses to get serious.)

    Even with the added weight, the Packers got nearly the same rushing results from the #1 RB position as compared between the Vikings and the Packers, over a three year period.

    Add to that: Receiving yards Lacy…872, receiving yards Peterson/Asiati….723. Postseason over three years? Hands down, Lacy.

    Over three years, unquestionably, Fat Elvis has performed as well, or better, than Skinny Elvis, and at a fraction of the cost. Three years is a long time. Petersons behavior kept the Vikings out of the postseason in 2014 and hindered their progress. Maybe they could’ve jelled more effectively in 2015 if he hadn’t gotten himself suspended.

    Let’s re-cap: Three years at the Primary RB position. *Comparable rushing yards as Peterson/Asiata, *more receiving yards than Peterson/Asiata, *more postseason yardage that Peterson/Asiata…….*all a a fraction of the cost.

    You can rag on Lacy all you want. the Next Man Up might very well be him!

    Go beat your own horse. This one is dead.

  115. Rolo Tomassi says: Feb 6, 2016 6:47 AM

    I wonder why the Packers didn’t do something about this before last season started?
    Aren’t the Packers the greatest organization in the league?

  116. stellarperformance says: Feb 6, 2016 11:44 AM

    I’m from Minnesota, born and raised. A Viking fan calling a Packer fan fat is a real head scratcher. Have you ever been to a Viking game? Have you seen the people at the Mall of America or the Minnesota State Fair?

    Are you aware the seats in the new Viking Stadium are the largest in the history of new NFL construction? Can you guess why?

  117. crownofthehelmet says: Feb 6, 2016 9:57 PM

    I’m neither a pack fan or vikings fan, but I am able to use a google machine to do a quick search to see that WI is the 14th fattest state, MN is the 36th fattest. I guess all those mall and state fair goers you saw crossed the border from WI.
