Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that there’s been no contact between the Seahawks and holdout S Kam Chancellor’s agent since Tuesday, September 8.
Chancellor’s holdout has already cost him $1.87 million through Week One and he stands to lose another game check worth $267,000 for missing Sunday’s game against the Packers.
According to Florio, there’s no end in sight in regards to Chancellor’s holdout.
The Seahawks are still dug in on their stance to not negotiate with Chancellor, given that he has another three years remaining on his current agreement.
Interestingly enough, Florio writes that some believe this situation could come down to whether the Seahawks are able to beat the Packers Sunday night.
Rand Getlin mentions that if Seattle can come out of this game with a win, Chancellor will lose the vast majority of the leverage he currently has.
Chancellor, 27, still has another three years remaining on his five-year, $29.323 million contract that included $17 million guaranteed. He stands to make base salaries of $4.55 million (2015), $5.1 million (2016), and $6.8 million (2017).
In 2014, Chancellor appeared in 14 games and recorded 78 tackles, one interceptions, a forced fumble and six pass defenses for the Seahawks. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 20 safety out of 87 qualifying players.
