Seahawks Planning As If They’ll Be Without Kam Chancellor For The Season

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the Seahawks are planning as if holdout S Kam Chancellor won’t play at all this season.

One Seahawks’ player tells Werder: “I don’t think we’re going to have him at all this season.

Chancellor appears to be dug in regarding his demands for a new contract. Other NFL teams such as the Giants have reportedly reach out to Seattle about possibly trading Chancellor. However, it appears as though they’re not interested in trading him at this point in time.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters that they plan to start Dion Bailey at safety in Week 1 if Chancellor hasn’t reported to the team, per Curtis Crabtree.

Chancellor will lose around 650,000 for each game he misses this season.

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.

We’ll have more regarding the Seahawks and Chancellor as the news is available.
