"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:

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:

Quote:
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."

Everybody hates Brad Childress! He strains all our relationships.
