Green Bay free-agent running back Eddie Lacy arrived Saturday night for a two-day visit with the Vikings.
Lacy touched down at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport shortly after 9 p.m. on a flight from Seattle. He had visited with the Seahawks on Friday and Saturday, and is scheduled to go to Green Bay after leaving Minnesota.
When asked by the Pioneer Press about his visit, Lacy declined comment.
The Vikings are looking at Lacy as a possible replacement for Adrian Peterson, who on Thursday became a free agent for the first time since entering the NFL in 2007. The Vikings have not closed the door on Peterson returning, but are looking at their options.
Lacy has played the past four seasons with the Packers. Lacy rushed for 1,179 yards as a rookie in 2013 and 1,139 in 2014, but has had weight and injury problems the past two years, gaining 758 yards in 15 games in 2015 and 360 in five games in 2016.
Lacy has had plenty of big games against the Vikings. In seven career appearances against them, he has carried 139 times for 618 yards, including four 100-yard games and a 94-yard effort.
It’s unsure what sort of salary Lacy might command. He is coming off a four-year, $3.39 million deal on his rookie contract and had a base salary last year of $867,602.
