2016 crucial to Eddie Lacy’s future in Green Bay

MMQB’s Peter King muses whether Green Bay Packers running back Eddie is entering the proverbial make or brake season:

“It’s make or break time for Eddie Lacy. His rookie contract expires after the season. Will the Packers see him as an irreplaceable battering ram or just another guy? Its’s completely up to Lacy. This team has catered to his methodical style, tweaking its running formations and QB-to-RB exchange concepts for him. (Notice how whenever Lacy runs outside zone plays, he either lines up in an offset shotgun position or gets the ball pitched to him. Both are tactics to compensate for his lack of speed and quickness.)”
