Packers RB Eddie Lacy on dropping weight: 'I'm cool'
"I'm cool," Lacy said after asked about the possibility of dropping some weight.
Lacy, unlike some of his teammates, took the offseason to simply rest the wear and tear off his body from last year's punishment.

Lacy rushed for 1,139 yards and nine touchdowns last season.
Chiefs' Alex Smith pin points areas of improvement during offseason
This offseason, Smith has targeted his footwork as one of the main facets of his game he needs to add some fine tuning to.
"For me, footwork is something that never goes away," Smith said. "You're constantly trying to get better with your feet. For me, it's working on being more consistent from being under center and in the [shotgun formation], when I do go back and forth. It's something that looking back on the tape from last year, I was a little bit all over the place and footwork is so important as a quarterback. It's kind of the foundation of throwing. Trying to get to a point where I'm more consistent with that. With that, you're more balanced and I think over the long haul you're going to complete more footballs, you're going to throw better balls."
Decision-making, especially on long plays downfield are another concern Smith is addressing. Last season, he threw just six interceptions but the Chiefs were last in the league in long passes.
"Both lend themselves to throwing the football down the field and being efficient," Smith said. "Any time you've got inefficiencies or wasted movement, things like that, it's only detracting from what you can put on the football. For me, I think both of those things are what I came away with as far as being efficient. Both of those go with being a better quarterback and throwing the ball downfield as well."
Smith threw for 3,265 yards and 18 touchdowns last season.
Raiders coach Jack Del Rio praises Ray-Ray Armstrong's maturity
“He’s really bought in to the idea of maturing and being more disciplined in his play. I think that if you bring some of the playmaking and some of the natural athletic ability that we like, some of the aggressiveness that we like. We’re just wanting to make sure that the maturity is there ... the accountability is there. I think he’s made great strides over this offseason in developing himself along those lines. That’s going to be important for us and important for him.”
Armstrong recorded 18 tackles and a forced fumble in 11 games last season.
Eagles CB Brandon Boykin wants extended role beyond slot coverage
Boykin, who's played in every game since he entered the league in 2012, said he spoke with coach Chip Kelly during the offseason and was told that the coaching staff wants him to fight for a starting job on outside coverage.
"He's the coach, he's a man of his word. I'm going to hold him accountable to that, just like he does us," Boykin said. "I'm going to go out there and ball and do what I'm supposed to do. Once camp hits, we'll see who outperforms whoever, and I guess you guys can worry about the rest."
Boykin recorded 43 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble in 16 games last season.
Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham on new team: 'It's been a great transition'
Graham was traded by the Saints to the
“Everything’s been amazing so far — it really has," Graham said. "From the guys to the coaches to the training staff, everyone’s been truly amazing, and it’s been a great transition so far.”
Though the transition to the environment and personnel has been smooth, Graham will have to adjust to a slightly different role on this Seahawks team. Graham, who was targeted at least 120 times in the passing game over the last four years, will need to accommodate himself in a slightly reduced role within the Seahawks balanced offense.
"I know I’m probably not going to get targeted 130 times. But that’s not my concern; I just want to win games," Graham said. "And I know there will be times — big moments in a game where I’m going to have to go out there and make a play. That’s what I’m focusing on — making sure that when the ball comes my way, I’m ready to take hold of every opportunity, and to not let any of these opportunities pass me by.”
Graham caught 85 passes for 889 yards and 10 touchdowns last season for the Saints.
