Former Packers' second-round pick Eddie Lacy is looking to return to football after sitting out last season. He worked out with the Baltimore Ravens on Friday.

Lacy was a member of the Packers for four seasons from 2013-16. He won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award in his first season was also voted to a Pro Bowl that season. In his first two seasons, Lacy rushed for over 1,000 yards each season and tallied 20 touchdowns.

But the tides changed after those first two seasons. In his next two years, Lacy would start only 17 games and ran for a combined 1,118 yards and three touchdowns. His poor play led the Packers to go in a different direction at the running back position.

Lacy’s last season was in Seattle in 2017 where he played in nine games and rushed for only 179 yards.
