The Green Bay Packers have signed RB Eddie Lacy. The signing was announced Thursday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.
Lacy, a 5-foot-11, 230-pound rookie, was selected by the Packers in the second round (No. 61 overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft out of the University of Alabama. He earned first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors as a junior in 2012 after rushing for 1,322 yards and 17 TDs on 204 carries (6.5 avg.).
The Packers have now signed all but one of their draft picks. The only unsigned draft pick is first-rounder Datone Jones.
