Former Packers RB Eddie Lacy passes second weigh-in with Seattle

Jeremy Fowler of ESPN reported the news.

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

Although we don't know exactly how much weight Lacy lost, we do know that he went from 253 pounds to under 250, so he's lost at least four pounds since last month.

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.

The Seattle Seahawks are literally paying Eddie Lacy to stick to his diet plan this offseason. He weighed 231 coming out of Alabama in 2013.

Aussie recovers after RBA, NZ dollar hits 3-month peak
All eyes are set on the Reserve Bank of Australia ( RBA ) which will release its monthly policy statement at 04:30 GMT. As far as consumer prices go, the central bank's expectations are largely being met.

Lacy has struggled with his weight throughout his National Football League career.

In addition to working out and training with the Seahawks, Lacy has continued to partner with home exercise program P90X.

During OTAs, Lacy was asked for his reaction when the Seahawks suggested the weight clauses. Coach Pete Carroll has said he wants Lacy to be a bit heavy to absorb, and give-out, punishment. At the end of the day, it helps me personally, too, so why not?

For the record, none of those gentlemen pictured here are not Lacy, though the Seahawks are hoping to ride him this year.

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.
