Packers free agent running back Eddie Lacy is about to hit the road.

And he’s going to visit the team that knows him best.

Lacy’s agents announced on Twitter that he was going to visit the Vikings, Seahawks and Packers in the next four days.

Of course, the Packers will want to see what kind of shape he’s in, as that’s been a persistent question there.

But the other two are also intriguing stops.

Replacing Adrian Peterson in Minnesota would create a major NFC North storyline, while the Seahawks are also hosting Raiders running back Latavius Murray.

  1. I do not want Eddie Lacy on the Vikings. I hope Randy Moss gives him a call to tell him about the quality of the Vikings’ caterer. That should keep him away.

  2. He lost his starting job to a wide receiver last year. Draft is loaded at RB this year and any team could get a better player with a 4th round pick.

  3. As much as I would love to see Eddie remain in Green Bay, I just can’t help but think of the whoooooshing air flying around Minnesota this afternoon.

  4. It’s reported that Lacy’s primary interest is which team has the best cafeteria buffet. Despite it being only March, teams will have their cafeterias up and running at full speed in order to entice Lacy to sign with them.

  5. I always find it weird when free agents visit the team they played for the year before. You’d think they know what they need to know about that team already.

    You always find it weird? When has it ever happened before?

  7. I understand that his agent has 100% assured the teams that Lacy is “in shape. ”

    He isn’t lying; Round is a “shape.”

  8. Don’t worry, fellow Packers fans, Eddie is only interested in Minny for the restaurants. They have more than two Applebee’s. Yeah, that’s really true. Like heaven on earth for us, I know.

  9. Vikings fans have been making fun of Lacy ad nauseum. Suddenly, they will be saying how wonderful he is if he becomes a viking and that he plays thinner than he looks!

  10. keep Lazy from the Vikings. He should stay where the fan base loves him in gb. The fans there think he is great. Stay put Eddie.

    I’m guessing you’re really smarter than this. It’s offseason. Ted wants to see what kind of shape Eddie is in. I’m sure they’ll weigh him. If he hasn’t changed he can go to the Vikings.

  12. Forget about this guy!!! McKinnon can be a good back behind an improved O line. And in a RB heavy draft the vikes can bring in another guy to compete.

  13. The one way the Vikings can get him is to give him a lifetime supply of McDonalds happy meals. That and he found out that the Vikings have an all you can eat buffet, no questions asked. The Vikings are better SERVED drafting a RB, however.
