March 15 (UPI) -- Tweeps have a hard time letting things go.
So when Eddie Lacy signed Tuesday with the Seattle Seahawks and questions resurfaced about his ability to manage his playing weight, the Twitterverse once again dug up tweets about his love for Chinese food. He affectionately refers to the delicacy as 'China food,' or at least he did from 2011 to 2013.
Lacy, who spent the first four years of his career with the Green Bay Packers, starred at Alabama from 2010 to 2012. His new deal with the Seahawks includes a $385,000 bonus for controlling his weight.
The running back weighed in at 267 pounds during one of his latest visits, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. His new one-year deal is worth up to $5.55 million. In 2015, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy needed to come back in better shape for the next season. He trimmed down that offseason by using the P90X workout program.

Lacy, 26, hasn't started more than 12 games since 2014. Last season he averaged a respectable 5.1 yards per carry but played in only five games due to an ankle injury. Although Lacy appears to want to manage his weight, he has used his Twitter to promote his love for fast food several times in the past.
Lacy weighed in at 231 pounds at the 2013 NFL Combine.
