Between the guys we have been rumored to be looking at (Charles, AP, Lacy) I think I wanted Lacy the most out of the 3.

I think that the expectations for AP would just be way too high for a 32 year old coming off injury and everyone would expect him to ballout like 2012 and would get pissed and cause a bunch of drama when he did not (like Jimmy Graham x 2).

Charles just seems to be overcome with injuries and Lacy at 26 still has a lot of potential upside.

Lacy - Rawls - Prosise is a solid backfield IMO.

What's crazy is Lacy was selected as the 61st overall pick of the 2013 draft by the Packers. Seahawks selected Christine Michael 62nd. The word is Seahawks wanted Lacy as a replacement for Lynch but had to take Michael instead.

Michael is still with the Packers so it's essentially like we swapped our second round picks.

Packers got rid of Lacy because the money they would have paid him didn't make sense since the entire offense goes through Rogers. Whereas here Pete still wants to be a run first team. So the move makes sense for both teams even though the Packers lose talent. Plus they just signed Martellus Bennett from the Patriots, and paying him over $21 million for three years or something like that.

I was thinking the same thing. I like that Lacy is only 26. Initially I thought he was older, but 26 I think is the same age Lynch came over from the bills. It's a good age in the sense that he's been in the league enough to understand everything but not old enough to have a ton of mileage.

Michale Robinson was saying AP didn't fit at all with the Seahawks:

“Seattle is a zone-running team,” Michael continued. “AP’s not a zone runner. He’s a gap-scheme runner. So all those things that I just mentioned checks out that this guy just doesn’t match up with Seattle.”

So as far as I'm concerned the only issue with Lacy is his weight. Supposedly he was 267 pounds during free agent visits. But he's been rehabbing an injury so Pete was saying that won't be an issue and Lacy understands what his weight expectations are, that he wants Lacy big around 235-240 and that they wouldn't have signed him if Lacy and the Seahawks weren't on the same page as far as his weight goes. So I think it will play out fine especially since the contract he signed is a one year "prove it" type deal which is heavy incentive based ($3 million guaranteed but could make $5.5 million if he does x, y and z).

I like the move personally. Closest guy to BeastMode there is. Hell he's second in yards after contact, behind Lunch. I was terrified when I heard Peterson was coming for a visit

AP is too old and runs behind a completely different scheme than what we do. It would have been a horrible decision

I am glad we didn't go for AP....but I gotta say I am shocked he is still out there teamless.

I never would have thought he would be treading water so long. Where is Jerry Jones to swoop in and do something stupid when you need him?!

He's pricing himself out a job. I think he really believes he's worth 10+ mil a year still
