There have been conflicting reports concerning exactly how much weight Packers running back Eddie Lacy had put on recently and how much weight the Packers wanted him to take off. Some reports said he put on 25 pounds between training camp and the end of last season, pegging him at a whopping 260 pounds, which is 30 pounds heavier than he was when he was drafted. But it was clear that Lacy had put on weight, and it was clear that he needed to lose it if he was going to remain one of the NFL’s top rushers in 2016.
The good news is Lacy has done it. He was already looking pretty damn good last month after just six weeks with P90X creator Tony Horton. Now come reports saying Lacy impressed the hell out of Packers teammates and coaches when he showed up for the start of the team’s offseason program having lost 15-18 pounds.

“I think Eddie looks good, man,” Packers defensive end Mike Daniels told ESPN. “We’ll see when the pads come on and everything, but I do think he’s a guy who rises to the occasion. He comes from a great program where they do things the right way. He came under a lot of fire, so I think he’s a guy that he got put on the spot and he responded.”
Maybe the Red Sox can get Tony Horton to help Kung Fu Panda?
