The Green Bay Packers drafted running back Eddie Lacy out of Alabama to be one of the team’s featured backs next season, but apparently Lacy has spent a little too much time at the buffets in GB. Check out these pictures of Lacy, the one on the left from OTAs earlier this summer and a more recent flick on the right from training camp:
Wait… did Eddie Lacy EAT Johnathan Franklin? Look at the difference btwn these photos. Just an unflattering angle? pic.twitter.com/AvJDICHT6J

Lacy did mention in a mid-July interview with the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel that he had been frequenting too many fast food joints and ballooned up to around 238 lbs (emphasis on ’round’), which isn’t much heavier than the 231 he weighed at the combine. We’re willing to bet that Lacy is a little heavier than 238 at the moment.
Lacy has about 3-4 weeks to shed the weight, so we’ll see if he can do it in time for the regular season.
