P90X Founder In Talks With Eddie Lacy To Help Him Lose Weight

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy has been facing criticism over his weight since his 2013 rookie year.
Packers head coach has made it plain – if Eddie Lacy does not lose weight this offseason, he will not be playing for the Green Bay Packers.
“Eddie’s got a lot of work to do,” McCarthy said. “I’m stating the obvious. His offseason last year was not what it should be and he never recovered from it. He cannot play at the weight he did this year.”
“I’m not the smallest person,” Lacy said. “Brandon Jacobs wasn’t the smallest person. Jerome Bettis wasn’t the smallest person. Some people can just play like that, not that I’m Jerome Bettis’ weight or nothing like that. I’m just saying, not everybody’s meant to look like Adrian Peterson or somebody like that.” (ESPN)
The Packers list Eddie Lacy at 5’11”, 234 pounds and the Packers’ inability to be consistent in the running game coupled with an early playoff exit this year has heightened the focus on his weight.
This news comes only days after Horton went public making comments to TMZ with interest in working with Lacy. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has been fat-shaming Lacy in the media and the popularity of P90X has been waning and it really provides an opportunity for a win-win situation. More than just popular, P90X is regarded as a truly effective workout routine that has produced some amazing body transformations.
Eddie Lacy has shown flashes of the talent that made him a star at the University of Alabama, but overall many have seen this season as a disappointment as he finished the year with career lows in carries, yards, touchdowns, catches and receiving yards.
McCarthy really sounds fed up with Lacy and with some great running backs that will be available in free agency like Marshawn Lynch and the upcoming NFL Draft, Lacy really has no choice but to shape up or ship out.
