Eddie Lacy earned $55K for weighing less than 255 pounds today

Eddie Lacy Collects $55,000 Bonus For Not Being Fat

Seattle Seahawks running back Eddie Lacy pocketed a $55,000 (50,100 euros) bonus on Monday after tipping the scales at 253 pounds (115 kilos) to meet his first contractually stipulated weight loss target, his agent confirmed.

"We have a real target for him", Carroll said. His contract has $2.8 million guaranteed but can earn up t $5.5 million due to incentives. Lacy can earn another $55,000 by remaining at 250 pounds to start August.

"He looks awesome. He looks great", Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said when he joined "Brock and Salk" on Monday. Lacy's agent tweeted the results of the weigh-in: Lacy's contract with the Seahawks contains seven potential weight bonuses worth a total of $385,000.

As ESPN reported in March, Seattle wanted Lacy to reach 255 pounds in May and 250 pounds in June.

Lacy weighed 231 pounds coming out of Alabama in 2013.

He's doing great. His attitude about it has been great.

After McCarthy's comments, Lacy consulted with the creator of P90X to reportedly drop 30 pounds, though he didn't keep the weight off.

Congratulations are certainly in order for Lacy but his challenges to keep his weight in check will get tougher as the calendar inches closer to football season.

Seattle is counting on Lacy to be a sort of replacement to Marshawn Lynch. "But I want him in the best shape so that he can run at his best and be durable and handle the load - 235, that's at the time he came out (of the draft), he was there".
