Seahawks G.M. owns Packers stock, too


Last night, we shared a new story from Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune regarding the Seahawks center who owns Packers stock. That gives Drew Nowak something in common with the guy who signed him.

Per a league source, Seahawks G.M. John Schneider also owns Packers stock. Which shouldn’t come as a surprise. Schneider, a De Pere native who once rushed for 192 yards and three touchdowns as a high-school junior, previously has worked for the Packers — and he reportedly has a clause in his Seahawks contract that would allow him to leave to become the G.M. of the Packers.

Many view Schneider as the eventual heir to Ted Thompson, who turns 63 in January. Schneider is in his mid-40s and has plenty years left in the league.

Regardless of whether Schneider ever works for the team again, every employee of the team is sort of working for him.
