Seattle Seahawks General Manager John Schneider talks about Marshawn Lynch’s future.

INDIANAPOLIS –Everything about Seattle Seahawks ubiquitous manager John Schneider screamed loose and infrequent when he took a scouting mix lectern Thursday. He approached a microphone in his untucked, sky blue checked dress shirt, jeans and cowboy boots.

That outward entrance is deceiving.

Schneider concedes he’s still wrestling daily with Seattle’s, 28-24, Super Bowl detriment to a New England Patriots when cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted quarterback Russell Wilson’s second-and-goal pass in a loss seconds only over dual weeks ago.

“I’m not over it – Do we arise adult in cold sweats? When we arise in a morning and consider about it, absolutely, it’s something that will hang with us forever,” Schneider said. “And it will keep pushing us to get better.”

The dethroned Super Bowl champions are literally still picking adult a pieces.

Schneider concurred that he’s still available word on either centerpiece energy behind Marshawn Lynch will lapse or retire with one year remaining on his four-year, $30-million prolongation during an $8.5 million salary-cap cost and $5 million in bottom income subsequent season.

“I’ve talked to his people a bunch,” Schneider said. “He knows we wish him to play.”

Asked if he’d be repelled if Lynch, 28, walks divided after rushing for 1,306 yards and a career-high 13 touchdowns final season, Schneider bluntly responded, “not really.”

“He’s a man who kind of beats to his possess drum,” he said. “He does what he wants. He never lets we know one approach or a other.

“There’s been a lot of good using backs who have only walked away. So we have no idea.”

Schneider has been in hold with Lynch’s representatives. And while he is perplexing to give Lynch time divided to “hit a reset button, generally during that position,” Schneider concurred a need for a bar to know “soon” about Lynch’s skeleton with giveaway group commencement Mar 10 and a breeze appearing Apr 30.
Schneider did supplement that Lynch “hasn’t given us an denote he would leave.”

What would a Seahawks do if Lynch did adult and retire after 8 seasons and a pulsation of 8,695 yards, 71 touchdowns and 2,033 carries on his odometer?

“We’ll have to adjust,” Schneider said. “We have to do that during each position. We’re assured we have models and skeleton for what’s entrance and we’ll only have to pierce brazen with Plan B.”

Plan B in this box could be third-year behind Robert Turbin and second-year behind Christine Michael.
“I like both those guys,” Schneider said. “They only haven’t had a ton of opportunities.”

This is also a good breeze for using backs and Lynch’s plug-and-play deputy could be watchful for them with a 31st collect of a initial turn in former Georgia behind Todd Gurley, a Lynch-type workhorse curtain recuperating from a ripped ACL suffered in November.

The reason a Seahawks need to know shortly on Lynch is that they are operative on a long-term prolongation for Wilson, a quarterback with a many wins ever after 3 seasons.

Schneider pronounced there is no timeline for those talks that are ongoing.

“I’ve talked to his people,” Schneider said, referencing Wilson. “They know where we’re at.”

One thing seems clear: The Seahawks will not overpay or use their authorization tab on tentative unlimited giveaway representative cornerback Byron Maxwell.

“We’ve had good discussions. We have a good attribute with those guys,” Schneider said. “Byron’s one of ours. It would be tough to see him leave. His marketplace will be flattering strong. He’s a heck of a player.

“We’re going to continue to doing things a approach we started here, drafting and holding onto people and try and keep a players we can keep or pierce on.”

To go along with maybe another immature Marshawn as well.
