Green Bay Packers’ Eddie Lacy Stirs Buzz With ‘Fat’ Photo

Green Bay Packers' Eddie Lacy Stirs Buzz With 'Fat' PhotoGreen Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy looks like he put on a lot of weight quickly, or this is just a really bad photo of him.

‘Looking rather large’

According to David Woods of The Scorethe photo on the left is from OTAs earlier this year, and the photo on the right of Lacy looking rather large is from training camp this week. The photo was originally posted on Packers.com before being passed around Twitter on Monday.


‘Bad angle’

In an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel from July 13, Lacy might have given an explanation 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 is just a bad angle, it’s clear that Lacy has gained some weight.

Aaron Rodgers Loses Bet About Ryan Braun’s PED Involvement

Aaron Rodgers Loses Bet About Ryan Braun's PED InvolvementWith the news that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs and will be suspended the remainder of the 2013 season, it looks like Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is the one who should be eating crow after his tweets from a year ago.

‘Exonerated’

Rodgers tweeted in full confidence that the media was slandering an innocent man and even told one fan he’d put his salary for next season on Braun’s innocence.

“MLB and cable sports tried to sully the reputation of an innocent man. Picked the wrong guy to mess with. Truth will set u free #exonerated”

“@toddsutton ya I’d put my salary next year on it. #ponyup #exonerated”


‘Game check’

Lindsay Jones of USA Today Sports interviewed the fan whom Rodgers tweeted at, who jokingly said he’d take just a game check from Rodgers, which would cost Rodgers $281,250.

Now, hindsight is always 20/20, and there’s obviously no way Rodgers could have known his baseball buddy was guilty, but these were pretty bold claims.

Do you think Aaron Rodgers would indeed pony up the money that he put up for the bet on his friend’s innocence? And what will become of Ryan Braun?
