As of Monday, Eddie Lacy weighs 253 pounds.
And he’s $55,000 richer.
The Seattle Seahawks running back needed to weigh in under 255 pounds on Monday to get the first of several weight-related bonuses written into the free-agent contract he signed with the team this offseason.
His agent tweeted the good news.
And Lacy’s already got a two-pound head start on his next goal. He has seven such bonuses written into his contract, with weigh-ins slated for various dates through December. His playing weight during the season is supposed to be 245 or less.
If he makes all the goals, Lacy will earn $385,000 in total...
