Whenever a player leaves town the odds multiply that he may be gone.

It means he was not satisfied with what his home team offered, therefore it gives his agent a base line to negotiate from.

Second, it also gives the other team a chance to wine and  dine him.

That may effectively double the cost of acquiring him.   I think dining Lacy may be the reason the Pack needs to keep issuing new stock

Is Seattle a good restaurant town?

Must be for seafood right?

It's the pre-meal activities in Seattle that drive up the quantities of food eaten -munchies and otherwise - not necessarily the quality.

I like Lacy and hope he gets his act together.

Per numerous reports, Lacy is set to visit Seattle, Minnesota, and Green Bay.


And the 'reports' are from where?


Links??

I’d be most disappointed to see Lacy go to either of these teams. Read an article stating TJ Lang also visiting seattle...

Lacy got his act together and until his season ended averaged 5.0 yards a carry.. so if we have lacy/monty/cobb/draft pick/rip and then cook to open the back field for safeties, and Aaron's wildest dreams it's an amazing thought. We really should sign Lacy. Watch his ESPN special where he lived in a trailer after Katrina. This guy understands motivation and heart. I hope we get him.

The Seahawks will have FA RB Latavius Murray in today and Eddie Lacy in tomorrow.

What if we let the Seahwaks sign Lacy, and then we sign Murray and Lang?

Not sure I want Murray.  He was far from impressive last year and he ran behind one of the NFL's best run blocking lines.  If he can't run behind them, there is little to no chance he'll have success in Green Bay where we struggle mightily blocking for the run. 

I wish his production was better because he's one of the best athletes in the NFL at his position.

I wish someone would sign Lacy to a big deal. He's going to get this contract and blow up to 275. He doesn't love the game and just wants that one big pay day.

An interesting fact that was outside my perspective on things.....

But he's always injured

Kind of a misconception about Lacy. Before this season, he played in 49 of 51 possible games (including playoffs). And played when hurt.

I'm right and everyone else does not have an opinion worth talking about.

This last injury bothers me.

He spread the deltoid in his ankle. He's held together with screws/plates/wires at the moment.

What role will his weight play in that becoming a chronic issue?

His weight is not a concern to me, but his conditioning is. Even though he essentially gained most of the weight back by the start of the season, his conditioning was much better in '16 than it was the year before. He was averaging 5.1 YPC and likely would have had a 1,000 yard season if not for the untimely ankle injury.
