Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson unveils new Nike cleats: After his Packers were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in January 2016, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy declared Lacy “cannot play at the weight he was at this year.”
He didn’t, but Lacy lasted just five games into the 2016 season. Though he was in better shape and averaged 5.1 yards per carry early, an ankle injury eventually required a two screws, wires and a metal plate. That ended his time in Green Bay.
This offseason he weighed 267 pounds during one of his free-agent visits around the NFL, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

Seattle signed him to a one-year, prove-it deal in March. Last month, he started proving it. Lacy made it under the first weight the Seahawks prescribed for him, 255 pounds. So he earned his first contract bonus of $55,000.
We all know the truth. The Seahawks NFL defense was not it’s real version by the end of the season. When Earl Thomas was injured near the end of the year, Seattle was not the same. Thomas’s replacement, Stephen Terrell, was not close to filling Thomas’s place. In fact, Seattle realistically saw so little in Terrell that the team has made no effort to re-sign the safety this offseason. Terrell was hesitant in his reactions allowing far too many passes to be completed over the middle distance. Against the Atlanta Falcons in the playoffs, Terrell was terrible. Time after time, Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan hit seam passes for large gains.
Great news, though, 12s! Earl Thomas is back and appears to be healthy entering the 2017 season. The one real question mark is who the corner will be opposite Richard Sherman. Seattle is ready for a long run this coming season. Here are the best case reasons why for the defense.
