Seahawks DE Michael Bennett calls Packers' Eddie Lacy, reporter fat
The Seattle Seahawks players spoke with the media on Wednesday as they prepared to host the Green Bay Packers for the NFC championship game, and the always entertaining defensive end Michael Bennett was asked about Green Bay running back Eddie Lacy.
Bennett said that what made Lacy different was his full-figured body type, which he then compared to the reporter who asked the question for a flawless double burn.

The plump reporter in question is Dave Mahler, host of a drive time radio show in Seattle, and he seems to be taking the shot in stride, telling his Twitter followers that Bennett was simply joking around.
