    "Percy Harvin trade initially shot down by Seahawks GM"

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100000 ... eahawks-gm

    "With cornerback Richard Sherman and safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor next in line for lucrative contract extensions, Schneider was hesitant to pay a receiver who reportedly was seeking an outlandish contract on par with Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald.
    Because Schneider and former salary-cap specialist John Idzik managed the salary cap so well the past three years, the Seahawks could afford to be the only NFL team paying two wide receivers more than $8 million per season. It certainly helped that Harvin carried the "street cred" to command respect in the team's pay-day pecking order."

    Glad Schneider's on our side :0190l: :0190l:

  • Skipped over the most interesting part, I think:

    Schneider was hesitant to pay a receiver who reportedly was seeking an outlandish contract on par with Calvin Johnson or Larry Fitzgerald.

    Once Schneider dug deeper, though, he discovered Harvin might settle for Vincent Jackson money ($11 million annually) if it meant escaping what had devolved into a poisonous situation in Minnesota, originally stemming from a strained relationship with former Vikings head coach Brad Childress.


    Seems the rumors about his asking price were just floated out there to get him out of Minny.

  • I also liked this quote from the linked Peter King article:

    I asked Schneider if he felt he had to keep up with San Francisco in a kind of NFC West arms race. "No,'' he said. "We're not making moves based on the 49ers. We're just trying to build the best team, regardless of our division."
