Either Eddie Lacy put on a lot of weight quickly, or this is just a really bad photo of him.
Wait... did Eddie Lacy EAT Johnathan Franklin? Look at the difference btwn these photos. Just an unflattering angle? pic.twitter.com/AvJDICHT6J— David Woods (@davidpwoods) July 29, 2013
According to David Woods of The Score, the photo on the left is from OTAs earlier this year, and the photo on the right is from training camp this week. The photo of the rookie running back looking bloated was originally posted on Packers.com before being passed around Twitter on Monday.
In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel from July 13, Lacy may have hinted at the reason for his apparent weight-gain.
In Green Bay, Lacy admitted, he's been splurging too much on fast food. During off-season practices, he weighed in at 238 pounds, a high number that, believe it or not, might be kind.
Even if the photo was taken from an unflattering angle, it's clear that Green Bay's second-round pick has packed on the pounds.
