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.
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.
