Eddie Lacy is turning weight loss into private cash cow

Seahawks' running back Eddie Lacy passed another weigh-in Monday, checking in at under 250 pounds to earn $55,000.

Last month, Lacy weighed in at 253 pounds, which was two under the 255-pound limit set by the Seahawks.

The contract Lacy signed with the Seahawks mandated seven weigh-ins.

A second-round draft pick from Alabama in 2013, Lacy's weight issues are believed to be one of the reasons the Packers were willing to let him go as a free agent. With Seattle, Lacy will be competing with Thomas Rawls for the Seahawks' starting running back position this season. ESPN reported, citing a league source, that Lacy's weight clauses during the season are tied to him being at 245 pounds or less.

Lacy recently posted this little clip of himself doing his P90X workout. He had to be at 250 pounds or less on Monday. Lacy will get a chance to add $55,000 to that total in August when he gets weighed again. The 27-year-old eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing twice in his National Football League career, averaging 4.4 yards per carry with 23 rushing touchdowns.

Seattle is giving Lacy another chance to redeem himself in the National Football League with the caveat of several much-publicised weight clauses into his contract.

"I have a great support group behind me from coaches to players to the nutrition team", Lacy said, naming everyone who's helped him lose weight.
