Seahawks extended GM John Schneider’s contract until 2016

According to Mike Sando of ESPN.com, the Seattle Seahawks extended general manager John Schneider’s contract through the 2016 season.

Coach Pete Carroll’s five-year deal runs through the 2014 season. GM John Schneider initially signed a three-year deal through 2012. Schneider and the Seahawks quietly extended his contract through 2016. The deal has been done for more than a year, without fanfare. Carroll would seem to be in line for an extension over the next year or so.

Schneider has proven to everyone around the NFL that he’s one of the best GM’s in football.  He’s done a phenomenal job building a winner in Seattle.
