Packers free agent running back Eddie Lacy is set to visit the Seahawks, Vikings and Packers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Both the Seattle Seahawks’ and Minnesota Vikings’ interest in Lacy come as no surprise. The Seahawks have yet to solidify their backfield since Marshawn Lynch retired, and it appears the Vikings are in business for a new back after they declined to pick up Adrian Peterson’s option. Lacy is a bruising running back, but he certainly comes with risk.
He’s been plagued by injuries in recent seasons and his play has proven to be rather inconsistent. After racking up back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing seasons to start his career, he totaled just 1,118 yards and three touchdowns on the ground in his past two seasons combined.
However, at just 26 years old, Lacy still has plenty left in the tank. Now it’s just a matter of which quarterback will be handing him the ball.
