This NFL player's yard sale for charity drew huge crowds


NFL running back Eddie Lacy spent his first four seasons with the Green Bay Packers, but earlier this spring he signed with the Seattle Seahawks. 

Naturally, that left him with a lot of extra gear that he no longer needs. So like any sensible person would do, the 26-year-old decided to have a yard sale to get rid of that extra stuff. 

The sale, which was originally scheduled to run from Friday afternoon until sometime Saturday morning, attracted hundreds of fans, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Those who turned out for the sale waited in long lines to get in. 

Really long lines. 

Team-issued hats and t-shirts, books, video games, cleaning supplies were among some of the items up for sale. 

Lacy was selling his team-issued gear for $50, the LA Times reports. 

He was also selling his collection of green football cleats for $27, a price which reflects Lacy's old jersey number. 

Lacy said 100 percent of the proceeds from the yard sale will be donated to charity. He added that any unsold items would be donated to Freedom House in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Freedom House serves families in need of housing.
