Seahawks sign running back Eddie Lacy

SEATTLE — The Seattle Seahawks on Tuesday signed former Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy.

Lacy’s management group, Sports Trust Advisors, first announced the news on Twitter that the four-year veteran has agreed to terms with the Seahawks. Seattle has been plagued by injuries at the position in recent years.

Lacy was the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2013, when he rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also ran for more than 1,100 yards in 2014, but has since been slowed by injuries and lost favor with Packers coach Mike McCarthy at times.

Last season, Lacy played in only five games, sidelined by ankle problems.

Blessed for another opportunity to play the game that I love. Thank you @Seahawks #GodIsGood #GoHawks

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reports the deal guarantees Lacy $3 million and up to $5.5 million.

Rapoport also says Jamaal Charles will still visit Seattle despite the signing of Lacy.
