Eddie Lacy’s free agent tour includes visit to Packers

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.

    Maybe the Vikings or Seahawks can get him off of the Mike McCarthy diet plan.

    Minnesota: Where Packers’ careers go to die. Really, all careers, let’s be honest

    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.

    Lacy is lining up as many visits as he can. You know why? Free dinners.

    Lacy.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    In all seriousness tho, Eddie Lacy will immediately sign with the Vikings when he hears about the donut club.

    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.

  11. screamingyellowzonkers says: Mar 9, 2017 5:45 PM

    Packer fans everywhere who have stated that Lacy is the greatest running back to play for the pack, will immediately claim that he was trash.

  12. purplepride11 says: Mar 9, 2017 5:49 PM

    Can you imagine how bad Packer fans would whine and complain if he signed with the Vikings? That would be hilarious

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

    Can you imagine what a beast Lacy would be if he can get out of Green Bay?

  15. chawk12thman says: Mar 9, 2017 6:08 PM

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

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

    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.

  17. LombardisHouse says: Mar 9, 2017 6:46 PM

    Vikings fans everywhere who have stated that Lacy is trash will immediately claim that he is the best back in the league.

  18. truthbetold109 says: Mar 9, 2017 7:03 PM

    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!

  19. filthymcnasty3 says: Mar 9, 2017 7:04 PM

    He may have finally eaten himself out of the NFL, and into Minnesota.

  20. sterling8484 says: Mar 9, 2017 7:10 PM

    As a Packer fan I def want him back, he was averaging 5.1 ypc and playing really well before he got hurt.

  21. fmc651 says: Mar 9, 2017 7:12 PM

    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.

  22. golforepar says: Mar 9, 2017 7:22 PM

    Lacy has a visit planned to Minnesota since they only have a goal of NOT taking last place in the NFC North!

    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.

    Someone needs to reference Eddie and food again. Because that hasn’t been said enough times yet. Way to be creative guys.

    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.

  26. nflpoker says: Mar 10, 2017 10:36 AM

    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.
