Chancellor texted Smith saying: “Ima go help my teammates that are understanding of my position and the ones who aren’t. God forgives all, why can’t i? Time to help us get back to the big dance . I can address business after the season. Me and Marshawn started a mission 2 years ago. I can’t let my Dawg down….Real talk.”
In fact, Rapoport adds that they even pulled a previous offer off the table.
The question now is whether they’ll forgive the fines Chancellor has incurred from holdout out of training camp and the first two games of the season.
As of now, Chancellor’s fines add up to $1.11 million, and the team could go a step further and go after his $500,000 of signing bonus, according to Joel Corry.
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.
