Report: Lions to pursue Seahawks GM John Schneider

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Detroit Lions are in need for a general manager. The team reportedly has their sights on a proven GM.

The team is interested in pursuing Seattle Seahawks GM John Schneider. This is a surprising report, because the teams may have to work out a trade for this to work out.

While at first, you may think, “Why would Schneider want to take the job?” There’s no incentive at first thought.

However, Schneider, despite being the team’s GM, does not have the power on personnel moves in Seattle. Head coach Pete Carroll makes all the decisions in the Great Northwest.

So if the Lions — who fired former GM Bob Quinn during Thanksgiving weekend — want to pursue Schneider, they’ll have to give him all the power. Plus, they’ll also have to pay him more to take over a lackluster team in Detroit.

With the Seahawks, Schneider is apart of a proven winner. The team has a chance to win the top seed in the NFC if the Green Bay Packers lose their final game of the season.

Also, he has a quarterback in Russell Wilson, who is a Top 5 performer. The Lions have maybe a Top 20 quarterback in Matthew Stafford.

The Lions have interviewed several in-house candidates. In addition, the team has also interviewed ESPN’s Monday Night Football analyst Louis Riddick.
