NFL Rumors: Seattle Seahawks 'pleased with the way things are going'


It has not been an easy offseason for the defending Super Bowl champions.

The Seahawks have lost several key free agents, including defensive lineman Red Bryant, wide receiver Golden Tate and cornerbacks Walter Thurmond and Brandon Browner.

Those losses certainly haven’t upset the champs.

Seahawks’ general manager John Schneider is pleased with the way things have gone.

“What I would say is we are pleased with the way things are going,” Schneider told ESPN 710 in Seattle via Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times. “The way they have gone is part of the model that we have created over the last year-and-a-half. So we expcted some attrition along the way. It’s always very hard to make those decions and move forward. But we are very excited about the younger players we have on this team. We are excited to get the Greg Scruggs’ back playing, and Tharold Simon and, shoot, the Super Bowl MVP (Malcolm Smith) is a pretty good player. We are really excited about the young core of players that we have.”

It’s tough for the Seahawks to be upset about much of anything right now.
