RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to a contract extension with general manager John Schneider that will keep him tied to the franchise through the 2027 draft.

The Seahawks announced Schneider's extension three days after their season ended in a 30-20 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC wild-card playoff game. 

Schneider's current contract was signed in 2016 and went through the 2021 season. 

The new deal keeps him on a similar timeline with head coach Pete Carroll, who signed a contract extension through the 2025 season last year.

Schneider recently denied any interest in the Lions GM job, right after there was a report that Detroit would make a run at him.   

At the time, he went on 710 ESPN and called it a rumor. "Traci and I my wife and I love it here." He finished the interview with, "That's about that. We're good."
