For the average joe getting rewarded for losing weight by perhaps some compliments and a stroke of self confidence, the new Seahawks running back will get paid for losing a few pounds through the rest of the year.
Structured within his new 1-year, 5.5 million dollar contract lies weight incentives for the 265lb. running back to entice him to lean up.
Eddie Lacy’s weight incentives breakdown ($55k for each month achieved)
