"Percy Harvin trade initially shot down by Seahawks 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
