Good news, everyone! Apparently, the message that the Green Bay Packers sent to Eddie Lacy about getting his weight down to a more reasonable level has been received loud and clear - in today's Cheese Curds, we find the first photographic evidence of Lacy's reshaped body, and we'll just say that he is looking good.

Meanwhile, another position on the offense has been debated and discussed to death, but with free agency approaching the discussions continue. Tight end continues to be a big topic, and today's news finds the Chargers' Ladarius Green mentioned as a potential target.

Check out that and much more in today's curds.
