Green Bay Packers Reportedly Come to Terms With Second Round Selection, Eddie Lacy
The Packers feature one of the more dynamic offensives in the NFL, but they have lacked a running game over each of the past few years. A couple scattered games were the best that Green Bay had to offer, but long story short, there has been no consistency. The Packers are hoping to put an end to that as things continue to progress forward, showing that indication by drafting UCLA running back Johnathan Franklin, as well.
Lacy however, had first round potential and some believed that Green Bay had made a mistake in passing over him with their first round selection. Things worked out however, as Lacy fell all the way to No. 61 in the second round. At that point, it was an obvious selection for the Packers.
ESPN‘s Adam Schefter reported the news of their agreement on Wednesday afternoon:
Eddie Lacy has agreed to terms with Packers.

There were no exact terms listed, as the aforementioned tweet indicates, yet details will surely emerge soon enough.
The good news is that the two sides have reached an agreement and Lacy can now turn his attention to training camp this summer. The expectations are high for Lacy, despite playing in a pass-first offense. He will be expected to run the ball effectively when he hears his name called upon.
