Published by Bleacher Report on Tue, 08 Aug 2017

Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said on Monday that running back Eddie Lacy made his weight requirement for the month, according to Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. Lacy had to be under 250 pounds to earn a $55,000 contract incentive.According to Field Yates of ESPN.com, Lacy's contract with the Seahawks includes seven different monthly weigh-in incentives, worth $55,000 each:May: 255 poundsJune and August: 250 poundsSeptember through December: 245 poundsAccording toMark Inabinettof AL.com, Lacy also made weight in May and June.Lacy has also looked good on the field."Im fired up about Eddie, he looks great," Carroll toldSeahawks.com. "He is rumbling and doing just what we want, and he is going to run huge, just the way we like it.""I still have a lot to learn," Lacy said, per Inabinett. "I'm still trying to get accustomed to the offense so I can continue to play natural, or as natural as I know I can play. But everything's coming along pretty good."Lacy, 26, rushed for over 1,000 yards in his first two seasons with the Green Bay Packers. But issues with his weight, a loss of explosiveness and injuries limited him to just 1,118 yards total over the past two campaigns.But his physical style should fit the Seahawks well, and he finds himself battling Thomas Rawls for the starting running back position.
