Slimmer Eddie Lacy makes good first impression

Posted: Updated:
Green Bay, WI (WXOW) -

You can't see it to believe it yet, but Eddie Lacy is reportedly answering the call to slim down ahead of the 2016 Packers season.

Lacy was not available to the media on Monday when the team began offseason workouts. He was also not included in the Packers' photo gallery following practices.

But recent social media reports suggest Lacy has lost 15-18 pounds after being called out by Mike McCarthy at the end of last season.

Teammates Aaron Rodgers and Mike Daniels both had favorable impressions after sharing the practice field with him.

"Looked like Eddie Man, he looked good," Rodgers said. "Obviously been doing a lot of P90x. He's gonna make sure he's taking care of himself the right way and he's got an infectious personality that everybody enjoys seeing that big smile across the locker room so we're glad he's our player. "

In a season marked by injury and disciplinary issues, Lacy finished with just three rushing touchdowns and 758 yards in the regular season. He is entering the final year of his rookie contract.
