Eddie Lacy Gets Fat Bonus Check ... For Droppin' Weight

5/15/2017 11:53 AM PDT
Breaking News

Eddie Lacy's off-season diet plan is already paying off HUGE -- the NFL star just cashed a $55k bonus check from the Seattle Seahawks for hitting a major weight loss milestone.

EL's weight issues are no secret -- and when he signed his new deal with Seattle, the team tied $385k to specific weight loss targets ... since he reportedly blew up to 267 during the off-season. 

The first checkpoint was $55k if Eddie hit 255 by May 15. The good news -- he's 253.

Cha-ching.

The next goal is 250 lbs by June which he must maintain through August. Then he must stay at 245 through the season. Basically, he gets $55k for each month he hits the target weight.

Eddie's tried P90X in the past -- and the program famously slimmed him down into the low 240s.

The big issue for Lacy ... dude loves Chinese food -- LOVES IT.

We did some Yelping -- looks like there's a handful of Chinese joints right near the Hawks practice facility.

Stay strong, Eddie ...

The trip also gave Avril a chance to look in on the 12 houses he built in Haiti recently ... one for each NFL sack he got last year.

I know these guys are mostly Seahawks, but we gotta say, they seem like Saints.
