Today’s the big day for Eddie Lacy. Or, rather, he’s hoping it’s a not-so-big day.
The Seahawks added the clause to the portly tailback’s contract when they signed him this offseason.
Lacy reportedly weighed in at 267 pounds – enormous for a running back – during one of his free-agent visits earlier this year. His struggles to keep his weight down led to his former team, the Green Bay Packers, repeatedly fining him and eventually letting him depart in free agency.
What would Lacy do with an extra $55,000? Well, it would buy an awful lot of his favorite meal.
