Video: Seattle GM John Schneider

Seattle general manager John Schneider said during his session with the media today here at the NFL Combine that the Seahawks are not likely to use their Franchise Tag on any players this season (read post below for more details on the tag).

Schneider also said his goal is to keep as much of the team intact as possible, including keeping free agents Golden Tate and Michael Bennett, but that there will be a lot of “tough decisions” ahead to try to get that done.

Schneider, though, likes to keep specifics pretty close to the vest, and he did that today, as he didn’t go into any real detail about the team’s efforts to keep free agents, or also attempts to extend the likes of Earl Thomas and Richard Sherman, other than to say it is something they would like to do.

Schneider also evaded a question about whether Pete Carroll has signed an extension — the 2014 season is the last of his original five-year deal — and also said he was not aware of any new surgeries to any Seahawks players since the end of the season.

We’ll have more later from Schneider. Here is some video of the beginning of his official podium session today:
