Former Green Bay Packer, Eddie Lacy, was signed to a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks for $2.865 million with extra incentives worth another $2.6 million. The weight loss section in the extra incentive clause is what’s currently making headlines.  He recently earned $55k for his first weight loss bonus, weighing in at 253 pounds.  And, he’ll earn his next bonus if he weighs in below 250 pounds by June 12th. When Lacy played at Alabama in 2013, he weighed 230 and his coaches are anxious to get him back to his prime playing days.

Speaking of the Seahawks, coach Pete Carroll, said he’s exploring signing former 49er Colin Kaepernick or former Brown Robert Griffin III as a backup QB to their starter Russell Wilson.
