Seattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy just became $55,000 richer for sticking to his weight loss plan.
Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy passed his weigh-in today, per source. Should collect his $55K for being 250 lb or below.

Lacy signed an incentive-laden, one-year deal with the Seahawks which pays out salary bonuses for keeping his weight in check. This is the second reported pay out Lacy has received for passing his scheduled weigh-ins. Lacy earned another $55,000 in May for weighing in at 253 pounds.
Lacy struggled with his weight during his last seasons with the Green Bay Packers. His new deal, spiced with monetary incentives, appears to be keeping the 5-foot-11 inch running back on track.
We wish Lacy the best in keeping up with his fitness goals. He’ll look to compete with running back Thomas Rawls during training camp this summer.
