Seahawks signed Eddie Lacy, formerly of the Packers, to a one-year, $5.55 million contract with $3 million fully guaranteed.

If Jackson and/or Evans goes down for a period of time (short or long), I'd like to not be crippled outside yet again.

Indeed.

I agree with both sides on this. If we walk away from the draft with a guy like JuJu, Ford, Zay Jones or even Kupp, we probably would leave the old vets off the wagon. But if for whatever reason the draft falls in a way that we walk away with a guy like Zach Pascal or Stacy Coley instead (or no WR at all), then there would be a case for bringing back one a vet for a year.


I'm not really going to want a UDFA/practice squad type 5th receiver on our opening day 53 regardless what round we select a rookie WR. I'm good with 1 53 man developmental slot in our opening day receiver group. Freddie Martino or new UDFA can start the season on the practice squad. We are still developing a QB. My feelings on the bottom of the position group will change in a few years when Jameis is a veteran.

He apparently weight 267 lbs. at a recent free-agent visit. This balloon up from 234 lbs. was also reported back in October by as well.

Maybe the Seahawks intend to convert him to Fatass Fullback

They overpaid. I was intrigued by Lacy at half that price, when I thought maybe he'd be getting himself in shape? $5 mil+ at nearly 270 lbs? I don't get it. They must be really desperate to get a physical element back in their running game. Seems like drafting a big back late and spending that $5 mil difference to close the deal on some OL help would have been a better move to me.

LOL, quite possibly. At 267 lbs., that's even bigger than some of the biggest fullbacks in recently memory I can think of, at least their listed weight. McClain, Leach, Strong, etc.

Because he's old and injury prone. Licht has made it clear that he has no interest in 30+ RBs.

That's good. I've also heard "Feast" mode.

Seriously, he weighed 234 pounds last season and weighed 267 when weighing in for the Seahawks. All reports are this was all fat.

He knew he was going to be a free agent and just didn't give a ****. I'm shocked the Seahawks signed him. They want him to get back down in the 240s range, but either he has a serious issue or doesn't care.
