Lacy signed an incentive-laden, one-year deal with the Seahawks which pays out salary bonuses for keeping his weight in check.

Seahawks running back passed another weigh-in Monday, coming in at fewer than 250 pounds to earn another $55,000. He will have another chance in August to earn $55 thousand if he maintains a weight of less than 250 pounds. The first check came in May, where he had to get in at 255 pounds or less. And that's why they wrote his contract with weight incentives.

The team wants Lacy under 250 throughout the summer and then under 245 during the season.

Lacy has been participating in OTAs on a limited basis as he continues to recover from an ankle injury. His agent retweeted an ESPN article confirming he made weight.

Lacy famously struggled to stay in football shape during his tenure with the Green Bay Packers from 2013 to 2016.

His weight has been a constant point of chatter, especially after the Green Bay Packers allowed him to walk for relatively cheap money to join the Seahawks this offseason. Lacy ranked first, though in limited time, in the National Football League in yards-after-contact in 2016 at 2.8. After Marshawn Lynch left, the Seahawks have let Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise carry the load. The 27-year-old eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing twice in his National Football League career, averaging 4.4 yards per carry with 23 rushing touchdowns. This would mean great things for Lacy and for the Seahawks.
