Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio interviewed Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider on Tuesday, which you can check out here.

Of note, Schneider told Florio that the Minnesota Vikings gave recent Seattle addition Percy Harvin’s agent a one-month window before he was traded to talk to other clubs about a contract for teams willing to trade for explosive playmaker.

Also, Schneider will talk with reporters here locally about the upcoming draft this afternoon.

Florio asked what Schneider’s going to do with his copious free time on the first day of the draft, with Seattle not scheduled to select until No. 56 in the second round.

“I think it’s going to be a wild first round,” Schneider said. “We build or board based on our team, not the league. And so we’re basically going to sit there and watch the first round, see how it unfolds. And we don’t pick until No. 56, so hopefully we have a bunch of upsets.”

Clare Farnsworth of says head coach Pete Carroll talked with is players about managing heightened expectations in his first meeting of the offseason.

Bob Stelton and Dave Grosby of 710 ESPN Seattle interview Matt Williamson of Scouts Inc, who gives Seattle the edge of San Francisco as the NFL’s best team.

The Seahawks waived defensive end Dexter Davis after he failed a physical. A seventh round selection in the 2010 draft, Davis could not overcome a chronic hip issue.

Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post takes a closer look at NFL draft prop bets.

Legendary NFL broadcaster Pat Summerall passed away on Tuesday. He was 82 years old.

Former Seattle quarterback Matt Hasselbeck comes up with a unique way to earn his No. 8 jersey from fellow backup quarterback Chandler Harnish in Indianapolis. Check out the video below.

  2. Does the NFL have Sunday night games on week 17? Otherwise it looks good. Not loving back-to-back games in HOU and IND, or the Monday night game in ATL. NFL doesn’t like to send W.Coast teams East for Monday Night games. But we’ll see. I”m excited!@!!

    Pat Summerall will be sorely missed. At his peak, he was one of the greatest play by play men in the business. His style represented a by gone era, where saying less was more. He believed the art of broadcasting laid in thrift: every word counted. And he did so with a wonderfully dry sense of humor. RIP…

  4. HawkfaninMT says:

    Really hope we can get the big East Coast games in prime time… Fight the 10 AM jinx a bit!

    I thought the final game of the year was Sunday night. I do not think they have Monday night in week 17, but they do have Sunday Night… Ic ould be wrong and too lazy to check though

  5. hawkfaninoklahoma says:

    hey montana, i bet that atlanta game ends up a sunday night game.

  6. SandpointHawk says:

    Nice wish list, love the mid season bye week. However I think we will see them back load the NFC West games again.

  7. Of all the former players to represent the Seahawks at the NFL Draft, they picked Isaiah Kacyvenski?

    So many other players I would have liked to see: Kenny Easley, Curt Warner, Bobby Engram, Dave Brown, Eugene Robinson, Dave Krieg, John L. Williams, Jon Kitna, Norm Johnson. Heck, even Brian Bosworth.

  8. How about Carlester Crumpler? :)

  9. You gotta look at the M’s schedule. I’m thinking that we’ll open on the road with the next 2 games at home. I’d love to see us go to SF on that first MNF double header and whoop their asses again!

  10. If you look at the M’s schedule, as you say, they will definitely be on the road week one. However, they could easily play at home week two since the M’s are at St. Louis on that Sunday and then go to Detroit for another series on Monday.

  11. Well said Duke, here, here (raises beer glass)

  12. Summerall was the best. And with Madden they formed the best duo of all time. He will be missed. Now we have lost my two favorite NFL guys in one year–Steve Sabol and Pat Summerall.

  13. GeorgiaHawk says:

    Couldn’t have said it better STTBM.

  14. The Sounders are playing at home on Sept 29 (NFL week 5) as well as the Mariners, so Seahawks may be away (or Monday night game?) Sounders are also at home Oct 27 (week 9), so that could also be an away game for the Hawks (@NYG?)

  15. bbnate420 says:

    Why would the M’s schedule matter? Nobody bothers to go watch that train wreck. Especially by September, when they’ll be hopelessly out of contention. I say try and take as many fans as possible away from M’s games. Both for being against the new Sonics’ Arena and to get them to sell the team to someone with a brain and who cares about more than simply turning a profit.

  16. @HawkfaninMT

    Checked out your mock schedule and you’ve got the NFC West games weighted too heavily in the first half of the season, plus you have 3 NFC West games consecutively; this will not work.

    The NFL wants to promote rivalries and fan interest; therefore, having 1 NFC West game for the Hawks during the last seven weeks of the season does not cut it. How about reorganizing 3 NFC West games in the last 4 or 5 weeks into your mock schedule instead. :)
