Chancellor is already the league's seventh-highest paid safety at $7 million annually after signing a four-year extension two years ago. But he wants more with the guaranteed money on his deal set to wash away next year. With FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) on the shelf for all of preseason, Chancellor may see a window to force the Seahawks to pay him. He just turned 27. ESPN's Jim Trotter reports the Seahawks "have no intentions of revisiting" Chancellor's deal.
