RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider are talking about their relationship with their starting quarterback after months of silence on the subject.

From their standpoint, everything is just fine with Russell Wilson despite speculation earlier in the offseason about his future in Seattle.

Wilson’s situation became a topic of conversation after he made comments following the Super Bowl that raised questions about whether the Seahawks were doing enough to put a winning product around him.

Carroll and Schneider hadn’t addressed the situation until the eve of Thursday’s draft, where the Seahawks are expected to be abnormally quiet.

The Seahawks’ three draft picks are the fewest in franchise history.
