Lacy visited with the Seahawks last week and also met with the Vikings and Packers before deciding to join Seattle today.
Lacy, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $3.392 million contract and is now in position to test the open market as an unrestricted free agent.
The Packers placed him on injured reserve back in October with a foot injury that required surgery.
In 2016, Lacy rushed for 360 yards on 71 carries (5.1 YPC) to go along with four receptions for 28 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
