I’m ALMOST sure Eddie Lacy will be fine by the time training camps get fired up, but this is still a funny story considering the past.
Despite reports of Lacy dropping 15-18 lbs. this offseason, Coach Mike McCarthy still wasn’t very complimentary when discussing the shape of his RB:
“Eddie’s like a lot of our team right now,” McCarthy said when asked of Lacy’s conditioning. “We’ve got a lot of work to do.”
He later said: “Eddie will be fine. I believe he’ll hit the target that we’re all looking for when the lights come on.”
Lacy is training with P90X creator Tony Horton and a source said he’s currently in the “240s”.
After putting up a pedestrian sub-800 yard season, after consecutive 1,100 yard years, it’s clear Lacy will need to improve his agility and speed to keep James Starks off the field and keep hold of the starting job.
