Eddie Lacy: The Return

When the AAF started back in February, I was somewhat surprised that none of the rosters included former Packers running back, Eddie Lacy. On Monday morning I stumbled upon a picture of Eddie Lacy on Instagram. Many of Lacy’s photos include inspirational quotes, his dog and Brandon Bostick. After being out of football for all of 2018, I figured Lacy was done with football and had moved on… meaning I assumed he kept his bad weight on and was out of shape. A few photos from early 2018 proved that to not be true; Eddie looked to be in great shape.

Fast forward to late Friday morning. Eddie Lacy is looking to get back into the NFL.

As Pro Football Talk reported, Eddie Lacy had a workout with the Baltimore Ravens today. Lacy seems to have left Baltimore without an offer but that is beside the point. I think many fans can agree that Eddie Lacy is well liked and although things ended poorly in Green Bay, he will be remembered for his bruising runs and huge smile.

Hopefully Eddie Lacy can land on his feet with a team this year and prove that he can stay in shape. Lacy is still only 28 years old and while that is old for an NFL running back, Lacy could still be a viable option if he is put in the right situation. Here’s to hoping that Lacy makes a 53-man roster in 2019.

  1. I know I’m in the minority, but I’m rooting for him. He was averaging a career high 5.1 YPC in 2016, before his ankle injury ended his season.

    And no — for those who suddenly claim to be doctors, it was not related to his weight. He had a plate and wire put in as part of the procedure.

  2. He wantwa well-liked. Dude *ate* his way out of the league! He didn’t even finish his rookie deal with us.

          1. Had 2 good years, then pffft, fat and lazy. It’s sad, because he had a lot of talent.

  3. How about “assuming he’s in shape, and hasn’t destroyed himself with a fork” he comes back to GB? How is GB in a place where they’re not willing to “revisit” this? I LOVED Eddie Lacy in GB? Look, if he’s done he’s done, I get that…. But…. Didn’t Bell just take a year off? I LOVED Eddie Lacy? If he’s in shape, why ISN’T GB A PLAYER?????????? WE have Jones and absolutely NOTHING ELSE???? WT*!!!! If the guy is in shape, and on a prove it to me deal? How is GB not a player? Come on Gutz? I mean if he’s done, I’m OK with that, but the dude was a complete BANGER….

      1. How could he not be better than practically ANYONE they currently have on this roster? I like Aaron Jones, but after that? Weak sauce!

  4. I always like him and hope he does well with his life whether it involves football or not.

  5. GB gave Lacy every chance to change his habits to remain as the featured back, but he could not comply. The NFL is not collage ball, Alabama gave Lacy holes big enough to crawl through and make positive yards, Lacy did not have the personal commitment to change his self for NFL style football and was willing to give it all away, except for the millions $ he took with him.
