GM John Schneider: Offensive and defensive lines are Seahawks' top priorities
By Brady Henderson
Seahawks general manager John Schneider joined the Calabro show on Thursday and offered some thoughts on Seattle's offseason to-do list.
"Well, starting any organization or any football team I think you have to look at both sides of your line," Schneider said when asked what the team's highest priorities are this offseason. "So I would say offensive, defensive line are priorities for us, no question. But were looking for depth at every position. But I think it starts on both sides of the ball."
Schneider said the team and quarterback Matt Hasselbeck's representatives had "good discussions" before the CBA expired.
The only quarterback the Seahawks currently have under contract for next season is Charlie Whitehurst. When asked about the team's confidence in Whitehurst, Schneider praised the quarterback's play in Seattle's division-clinching win over the Rams and downplayed his struggles in an earlier loss to the Giants.
Schneider later said Hasselbeck's injury concerns were the reason for acquiring Whitehurst and signing him to a two-year deal last offseason.
