- 5-foot-11, 231 pounds
2016 stats (in five games with the Green Bay Packers):
- 71 carries, 360 rushing yards
- 4 catches, 28 receiving yard, 0 touchdowns
Another option that depends on what Minnesota does with Peterson, Lacy is coming off a season in which he only played five games because of an ankle injury. However, his health should not be too big of a concern since he only missed one game in the three years previous to 2016.
Since Lacy has spent his entire career with the Packers (gross), he has a ton of experience in playing against the teams from the Vikings’ division. His career 77.9 rushing yards per game against teams in the NFC North is only second to his average when playing teams in the AFC North (95.3)
Signing Lacy would also be intriguing for Minnesota since it would additionally be taking away one of Green Bay’s best weapons on offense. Will the running back be the latest Packers player to abandon Wisconsin for a contract with the Vikings?
