According to ESPN.com, the Packers wants Eddie Lacy to be able to stay on the field for all three downs to maintain a quick pace.
Lacy touched the ball 319 times last season (284 carries, 35 receptions) even though he really played just 14 games (he left after one carry due to a concussion in Week 2). Green Bay probably won't have him run the ball 20 times a game again with Aaron Rodgers healthy, but he could catch more passes. Over 16 games, Lacy should handle the football at least 320 times.
The Packers want Eddie Lacy to log more snaps than he did last season, "in order to prevent substitutions from slowing down the offense."
The Packers want Lacy "on the field longer," according to beat reporter Rob Demovsky. "We want to get him touches, trying to get him more involved in all aspects of the game," said OC Tom Clements. Demovsky believes an even more complete role could mean more receptions for Lacy, who caught 35 passes as a rookie. Lacy played 60.2 percent of Green Bay's offensive snaps last season.
