GREEN BAY — The
Green Bay Packers have signed running back Eddie Lacy, their
second-round pick in this year's NFL draft.
Terms of the
deal, announced Thursday, were not disclosed.
230-pound Lacy earned first-team all-SEC honors last year after
rushing for 1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns at Alabama. He finished
with a career average of 6.77 yards per rush, the most among
active players last year in major college football last year, but
fell to the 61st pick because of health concerns. A hamstring
problem prevented him from participating in the NFL pre-draft
combine in February.
