To collect even more money on Monday, the Seahawks made things slightly more hard: Lacy had to weigh 250 pounds or less. The Seahawks signed Lacy to a one-year contract worth $2.865 million guaranteed and he can earn up to $2.685 million through various incentives, which also include his weight clause.

Lacy is required to remain at 250 lbs. until September, when he will be required to weigh-in at 245 pounds - a weight he must hold through December.

Last season he weighed in at 234 pounds and rushed for a career-low 360 yards, after only appearing in five games.
