It is easily the question Mason Crosby has heard the most -- from friends, family, fans -- since the Green Bay Packers returned to work last month for their offseason program.
How does Eddie Lacy look?
The veteran Packers kicker certainly understands why so many people are curious about Lacy, especially after head coach Cheap Jerseys Wholesale, Save 60% Over 5 Items Mike McCarthy -- speaking in his end-of-season wrap-up news conference following the team’s overtime playoff loss to Arizona -- publicly chastised the running back for being overweight last season.

He had three 100-yard performances over a four-game stretch, interrupted only by a benching for missing the team curfew before a game at Detroit.

That’ll be the first time Lacy’s teammates see him in an 11-on-11 setting, albeit only in helmets and shorts.
“Eddie looks great. He’s killing all the runs, working out hard,” Crosby said. “Obviously it’s going to be exciting to get back on the field. I know everyone’s looking forward to seeing [him]. That’s the big talk, ‘What’s Eddie going to look like? What’s Eddie he going to be like this next year?’ Just his presence, how he’s been around [the team], it feels like he’s where he needs to be and what he probably wants to be playing at coming into this year.”
