According to Field Yates of ESPN.com, Lacy’s first scheduled weigh-in with the Seahawks is today, and he stands to make $55,000 if he weighs 255 pounds or less.
The eventual goal for the Seahawks is to get Lacy down to about 245. Pete Carroll has mentioned that he doesn't want Lacy to be small, just in better shape. Seattle loves to use those big bruising backs in their offense. Think Thomas Rawls and the great Marshawn Lynch. Hopefully for them (and Lacy) he can find the right weight that has him playing powerful, shifty, and injury free. Lacy is determined to prove himself as he's only on a one year deal, and stands to make a lot in free-agency next year if he can prove himself.
His next weigh in after today is sometime in June.
