The Seattle Times believes Dolphins S Reshad Jones' extension will affect negotiations between the Seahawks and walk-year SS Kam Chancellor.
Jones' deal works out to a five-year, $60-million pact with $35 million guaranteed, making him one of the highest-paid safeties in the league along with Eric Berry. Chancellor plays a more defined and limited role than those two, but the ever-increasing safety market means Chancellor will certainly be looking for a raise on his $7 million annual average. With Earl Thomas already making $10 million a year, Seattle will have some tough decisions to make this summer. Mar 11 - 7:54 AM

Kam Chancellor (groin) is no longer listed on the Seahawks' Week 10 injury report.

Chancellor is ready to resume his role as the starting strong safety after putting in a full week of practice. His return will be a huge boost to a Seahawks' secondary that will need as much help as they can get Sunday against Tom Brady and the red-hot Patriots.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (groin) returned to a full practice on Wednesday.

Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (groin) is "ready to go."

It's unclear if that means he's simply ready to resume practicing or if he's planning to play Sunday against New England. We're guessing it's both. Chancellor's return would obviously be a huge lift for the Seahawks' secondary. Kelcie McCray has struggled while filling in at strong safety and blew his assignment on a touchdown to Justin Hunter in Monday night's win over Buffalo.

Seahawks GM John Schneider doesn't expect SS Kam Chancellor to hold out this year.

"No, I wouldn’t think so," were Schneider's exact words. Chancellor held out the first two games last season, but failed to get a raise. He went on to have his least effective campaign in years. Now 28, Chancellor will make an affordable $6.1 million in 2016.
Tue, Apr 5, 2016 02:44:00 PM

When asked about his holdout last season, Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor said "the past is the past."

"I’m here to lead my team to do exactly what I was created to do—nothing more, nothing less," said Chancellor. "That’s all I’m here to do and that’s what my vision is focused on right now." The Seahawks haven't rewarded Chancellor with a new contract yet but another holdout seems unlikely. He called Seattle his second home in a recent Instagram post while GM John Schneider has said Chancellor will "absolutely" be on the Seahawks in 2016. Chancellor still managed 74 tackles and two interceptions last season despite missing five games.
