As Eddie Lacy shrinks, his bank account expands.
For the second time in the span of a month, the veteran running back has reportedly met an incentivized weight target baked into his new contract with the Seattle Seahawks.

Lacy’s agents at SportsTrust Advisors confirmed the news.
On May 15, Lacy collected his first $55K for weighing at 255 or below (he came in at 253). He’s now made a cool $110,000 for showing the type of discipline that might have gotten him a second lucrative contract from the Packers.
Lacy’s battle with the scale is well-documented. In March, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Lacy weighed 267 pounds at one of his free-agent team visits. He weighed 231 pounds when he came out of Alabama in 2013.
Lacy’s next weigh-in for dollars — they should really televise this — will come in August. ESPN reported, citing a league source, that Lacy’s weight clauses during the season are tied to him being at 245 pounds or less.
We are all Eddie Lacy. Good luck, sweet prince.
