Eddie Lacy rummage sale postponed to May
DE PERE – Eddie Lacy's going to own all that stuff he no longer wants for another month.
The former Packers and current Seattle Seahawks running back was out of town and his Friday morning flight back to Green Bay was canceled, making it impossible for him to get back in time for a planned 1 p.m. start to the sale.
Lacy announced the "garage and moving" sale on Twitter and Facebook earlier this week. The plan was for the sale to be 1-6 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday. He Tweeted on Friday morning, however, to say a flight cancellation wouldn't allow him to get back in time. In a later update, he said his new goal is to hold the sale May 5 and 6.
He planned to announce the location of the sale in De Pere on Twitter and Facebook closer to the starting time. At one point, Lacy advised would-be buyers to have reasonable expectations. "Caution...ya won't find any Fine China, Gucci sneaks or flat screens, I'm pretty simple. Just raising a few bucks for a good cause."

Lacy said all money would be given to a charitable organization and unsold items donated to Freedom House in Green Bay. Freedom House provides emergency housing to families, helping them find permanent housing and employment. Freedom House president Robyn Davis was named new president and CEO of Brown County United Way on Thursday.
Seattle signed Lacy as a free agent in March. He played for the Packers from 2013 through 2016.
