A little less than a year ago NFL running back was payed a good lump sum of money for losing weight (weight set by the Seattle Seahawks organization).
Seattle Seahawks running back, Eddie Lacy accomplish a goal set for him by the Seahawks organization. It was a $385,000 in bonus money for the during seven different weigh-ins over the set course of time.with the Seahawks back in March of 2017, which came with a nice incentive if he could
Back in May, Lacyduring his first weigh-in when he checked in at 253 pounds. To collect the money, Lacy had to weigh 255 pounds or less.
To collect, the Seahawks made things slightly more difficult: Lacy had to weigh 250 pounds or less. For a guy who once weighed 267 pounds, getting under 250 was no easy feat, but it looks like Lacy managed to do it for his weigh-ins.
Seahawks RB Eddie Lacy passed his weigh-in today, per source. Should collect his $55K for being 250 lb or below.

Lacy’s agents then confirmed that their client is now $55,000 richer with a tweet that included everyone’s favorite emoji: Moneybags.

So if you were given the opportunity to earn 55K to lose weight then maintain it, would you do it?
