The prior contract applicable to Seahawks G.M. John Schneider reportedly included a provision allowing the Wisconsin native and Packers shareholder to leave to become the G.M. in Green Bay. Schneider, without confirming that his prior deal had that term, says his new one doesn’t.
“No,” Schneider told reporters on Thursday, via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. “There’s been lots of whispers about a lot of things and it’s a small league, and I’m from a small home town.”
The clause largely had become irrelevant, given that all signs point to Eliot Wolf becoming the successor to Ted Thompson in Green Bay. But if giving up the ability to walk helped get Schneider the deal he wanted, it had a lot more value than the non-stock stock certificate he previously bought from the Packers.
