Eddie Lacy Has Lost 15-18 Pounds With P90X Founder Tony Horton

Apr 18, 2016 7:33 PM

Eddie Lacy's weight loss has impressed his Green Bay Packers' teammates.

When they last saw Lacy, he was being called out by Mike McCarthy, who said his running back "cannot play at the weight he was at [last] year."

"I was going to crack a joke, but I won't. He looked good," Nelson said Monday. "We're glad to have everyone back, get ready to work. That will be for him to answer. I didn't ask him how much he weighed or his percent body fat or how fast he ran."

Lacy has lost between 15-18 pounds since the end of last season.

McCarthy denied a report that the Packers told Lacy to lose 30 pounds.

Lacy spent most of the last three months working out under the guidance of P90X founder Tony Horton, first in Wyoming and then in California.

"He looked good," Aaron Rodgers said. "Obviously been doing a lot of P90X."

Mar 15, 2016 12:16 AM

B.J. Raji said he is stepping away from football and that he will not play for at least the 2016 NFL season.

Raji released a statement Monday, referring to his decision as "a hiatus" and saying that he "cannot rule out a return to the NFL in the future."

"I have played football and been defined as a football player for as long as I can remember," Raji said in the statement. "This off-season was the first time that I felt myself pulled in another direction and I am excited to first be 'all in' with my family back home and then to explore new frontiers. I am not exactly sure what the next phase of life will entail, but I am confident that all of the lessons I learned during my NFL journey will provide a solid foundation for success."

Mike McCarthy Frustrated With Ted Thompson Not Signing Free Agents

Jan 24, 2016 5:19 PM

Mike McCarthy has grown frustrated with Ted Thompson's unwillingness to sign free agents for the Green Bay Packers.

The Packers have consistently relied heavily on the draft, but the first five selections in 2015 offered no help this season.

"Thompson operates like a glorified director of college scouting," writes McGinn in the piece.

The Packers' offense struggled in 2015 to perform at the level they've come to expect during Aaron Rodgers' tenure.

McCarthy: Eddie Lacy Can't Play Next Season At His 2015 Weight

Jan 18, 2016 11:48 PM

Mike McCarthy was clear that Eddie Lacy needs to return next season in better shape.

"Eddie Lacy, he's got a lot of work to do. His offseason last year was not good enough, and he never recovered from it," McCarthy said during his season-ending news conference two days after his team's 26-20 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday in the NFC divisional playoffs. "He cannot play at the weight he was at this year."

This is the second time McCarthy has called Lacy out for his weight.

McCarthy benched Lacy twice during the season, earlier in the year over lack of production and later in the year after Lacy missed curfew the night before the team's Dec. 3 game at Detroit.
