Eddie Lacy: My weight is “going to be where it needs to be”

AP

As Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy prepares for his next $55,000 step onto the scales (which reportedly comes on Tuesday), he’s confident that he’ll continue to meet the monetary goals set in his contract.

“It is going to be where it needs to be,” Lacy told reporters on Monday regarding his weight.

Lacy explained that he got his weight under control in part by working out again with the Pied Piper of the P90X series.

“I met with Tony Horton, way back, Super Bowl weekend it was, and we had chemistry the first time we met, and I did that so I figured why not go back to it,” Lacy said. “It was like chemistry and we did it before, so it was natural, it was normal to me.”

Lacy added that his ankle “is fine,” but that he has “a little ways to go” to get to 100 percent. That won’t stop him, Lacy added, from being “able to go out and compete, and do what I have to do.”

What he also needs to do is stay away from his primary culinary weakness, Chinese food. Asked about that subject on Monday Lacy said, “I’ll skip that question.”

It will be far more important for him to skip that restaurant, at least until he retires from football.

  1. Memo to the Seahawks:

    Make sure the offensive line sits on one end of the bench when Lacy is on the other end. Otherwise the guys in the middle might get launched.

  2. It’s not too hard to live off fruit and water for a few days and drop the weight, But, does he hit up KFC right after he makes the weight. My guess is that the colonel is calling.

  3. In his defense, he may finally have a competent training staff to help him with his enormous dietary requirements. No offense to the GB staff, It’s rumoured that the Seahawks have recruited support staff from the Seattle Zoo to help with his meal program.

  4. If he gets obese again midway through the year and doesn’t perform, his career is likely over. You’d hope he realizes that, but with some football players, for whatever reason they just don’t get it.

    Actually, he looks cut in camp. We’ll see. My guess is he crushes people, especially the 49ers.

    I dont know about that. Chinatown is amazing! Is Kan’s still there? They better hire guys to watch him on the road games to SF.

  6. Word out of Seattle is he’s eating healthy seafood Salmon etc….

    He KNOWS that his nutritional habits must stay on track all season long because RB Thomas Rawls is right on his tail.

  7. Unfortunately, his time in Green Bay can be described as “underwhelming.” Just another athlete wasting his talent and thinking the big paychecks will be there forever.

    Spoken like a true someone, whom has know clue whats going on…

    What he FINALLY has, is a CONTRACT that makes him to be aware of his weight.

    You know what GB fans feel about that? TOTALLY fine, because fans want their players, to earn their escalators and perks for playing great. Not for “weighing in” like a prize fighter.

  9. He’ll have his one good game of the year against the Packers. Then he’ll start ballooning, hurt his ankle, and sit out the rest of the year…

  10. He may finally have a competent training staff to help him with his enormous dietary requirements, as opposed to when he was with GB, whose answer to everything is “MORE CHEESE!!!”
