The biggest pleasant surprise for the Packers this offseason was going to be how much weight Eddie Lacy lost and how good of shape he was going to be in.

 

Might want to put a hold on the optimism, though, because the initial reports out of Packers OTAs are less than exciting for Lacy's progress.

 

Asked about his running back, coach Mike McCarthy was less than complimentary (again).

"Eddie's like a lot of our team right now," McCarthy said. "We've got a lot of work to do."

McCarthy did add he thinks Lacy "will be fine" and will "hit the target that we're all looking for when the lights come on."

 

Lacy was listed at 235 pounds last season (OK, sure) but played much closer to 250 pounds. P90X creator Tony Horton -- who Lacy trained with this offseason -- told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel he thinks the back lost "between 15 and 20 pounds" but didn't actually weigh him before or after.
