NFL: Seahawks sign big back Eddie Lacy

The Seattle Seahawks are hoping Eddie Lacy can be motivated by a one-year contract to rediscover the form that made him the 2013 offensive rookie of the year.

The Seahawks and Lacy agreed to terms on a one-year deal, providing Seattle a big body for a run game that was once the best in football but lagged last season after the retirement of Marshawn Lynch.

Lacy was the top offensive rookie four years ago when he rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns for the Green Bay Packers.

Seattle also re-signed cornerback and special teams standout Neiko Thorpe.
