The Seattle Seahawks are paying Eddie Lacy to lose weight

Seattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy has reached the second of his weight goals laid out by the team, according to multiple reports.

Signed as a free agent in March, Lacy's commitment to meeting his weight goals is a good sign for the Seahawks.

On May 15, Lacy collected another $55,000 for weighing 253 pounds.

His weight has always carried a unusual fascination with fans and media ever since Lacy admitted at the National Football League scouting combine coming out of Alabama that he was a "pound or three" too heavy in school.

Let's be honest here, one order of General Tso's chicken could've put Lacy over the 250 mark and cost him $55,000.




When Eddie Lacy signed with the Seattle Seahawks this offseason, his contract drew a lot of attention. He weighed 231 coming out of Alabama in 2013.

We don't know the specific weight for Lacy, but who really cares?

"Challenges. As a competitor, you want to be challenged", Lacy said of the weigh-ins, per of ESPN.com. At the end of the day, it helps me personally, too, so why not?

The Seahawks and Lacy agreed to a one-year contract that includes $2.865 million guaranteed.

During OTAs, Lacy explained why he chose to accept the weight incentives in his contract.
