Packers sign RB Eddie Lacy

GREEN BAY -

The Green Bay Packers have signed running back Eddie Lacy, their second-round pick in this year's NFL draft.

Terms of the deal, announced Thursday, were not disclosed.

The 5-foot-11, 230-pound Lacy earned first-team all-SEC honors last year after rushing for 1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns at Alabama.

He finished with a career average of 6.77 yards per rush, the most among active players last year in major college football last year, but fell to the 61st pick because of health concerns.

A hamstring problem prevented him from participating in the NFL pre-draft combine in February.

The Packers only remaining unsigned draft pick is UCLA defensive end Datone Jones.
