Seahawks placed SS Kam Chancellor on the active roster.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed SS Kam Chancellor will likely make his 2015 debut Sunday against the Bears.

Specifically, Carroll said the Seahawks are "planning on" Chancellor playing, adding that it's "not unrealistic" that Chancellor could play all four quarters. Finally ending his holdout, Chancellor reported to the team weighing 226 pounds, six under his playing weight. Vegas oddsmakers have estimated that Chancellor's presence is worth 1-1.5 points per game on a weekly basis.

NFL Network's Albert Breer reported no adjustments were made to Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor's contract.

It is still unclear if Chancellor will get the over $2 million in fines and lost game checks back. At this point, it does not appear Chancellor's holdout did anything to help his contract situation though it could put him in a better negotiating position next offseason. Chancellor is questionable to play this week against the Bears.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is ending his holdout and reporting to the team's facility on Wednesday.

He's reporting on his own terms, and the Seahawks are making no revisions to his contract. Was it worth it? Chancellor now faces over $2 million in team-imposed fines. Chancellor will be with his teammates for the first time since the spring after sitting out all of training camp, preseason, and the first two weeks of the season. It's hard to see him starting Week 3 against the Bears after having no practice time for months. With the Seahawks as two-touchdown favorites at home against the Jimmy Clausen-led Bears, it's a good time to let Chancellor get his feet under him. This is obviously great news for the remainder of the season.
Sep 23 - 9:34 AM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said "nothing's changed" in the contract dispute with holdout SS Kam Chancellor.

There was some hope the Seahawks' 0-2 start could spur a resolution, but it does not appear the two sides are anywhere near a deal. Chancellor is unlikely to be back Week 3. DeShawn Shead replaced Dion Bailey at strong safety against the Packers.
Sep 22 - 12:00 PM

Pro Football Talk reported there has been no contact between the Seahawks and holdout SS Kam Chancellor's agent since September 8.

Each side is holding firm in their positions. Chancellor's holdout has already cost him $2.1 million in fines and lost game checks while the Seahawks are looking an 0-2 start in the face Sunday night in Green Bay. Both factors could theoretically spur action next week, but it is still difficult to see a resolution coming anytime soon.
Sep 19 - 10:43 AM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says Sunday's loss to the Rams will have no effect on contract talks with holdout SS Kam Chancellor.

Chancellor's replacement, Dion Bailey, got burned for a game-tying touchdown late in regulation, but the team is unmoved. "It’s pretty obvious he’s a terrific football player, a big part of our team," Carroll said of Chancellor. "But the fact is we don’t have him — we have to go with it." We'll see if Carroll's tune changes after Bailey does battle with the Packers' high-flying offense this weekend.
Sep 15 - 4:24 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Seahawks and holdout SS Kam Chancellor are only $900,000 apart in contract talks.

In real-world money, that's obviously a huge gap, but that's couch-cushion change in the NFL. Chancellor reportedly simply wants his 2016 salary bumped up with some guaranteed money kicked into it; he has no issues with his 2015 pay. The Seahawks aren't budging, but things can change quickly and likely will.

Kam Chancellor told NFL Network he would end his holdout if the Seahawks meet him halfway on his contract demands.

Chancellor is attempting to get some of his $6.8 million 2017 salary pushed into 2016, but the Seahawks have refused to budge. He's expected to sit out Week 1 and could carry his holdout into multiple weeks. Dion Bailey is set to start in Chancellor's place.
Sep 9 - 7:32 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks holdout SS Kam Chancellor is "now expected" to sit out Week 1.

Chancellor has made it known he's willing to miss games in order to get a new contract from the Seahawks. Not showing up for Seattle's first practice Wednesday almost assures he won't play the opener. Dion Bailey will get the start in Chancellor's place next to FS Earl Thomas. It's an upgrade for the Rams offense, but not one big enough to make us want to play any of them.
Sep 9 - 2:49 PM

A Seahawks player told ESPN's Ed Werder they do not think holdout SS Kam Chancellor will play at all this season.

Not playing at all would actually be counterproductive for Chancellor. If he does not play this season, his current contract would be pushed back a year, meaning Chancellor would be under contract until 2018 instead of 2017 as he is now. If the Seahawks refuse to budge, it makes more sense for Chancellor to come back sometime in the middle of the season in order to get one year closer to free agency.
Sep 8 - 8:41 AM

Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks have been getting calls from other teams about holdout SS Kam Chancellor's availability.

Carroll adds, however, that the Seahawks aren't interested in dealing the 27-year-old. Chancellor has been away from the team since training camp opened over a month ago. The Seahawks continue their stance that they won't redo Chancellor's deal this year, as he still has three years left on his pact. There's reportedly "scant optimism" inside the organization that Chancellor will play Week 1, but we're not holding our breath. Dion Bailey has been filling in for him.
Sep 7 - 7:25 PM

SI's Peter King reported there is "scant optimism" in the Seahawks organization holdout SS Kam Chancellor will play Week 1.

Chancellor has been adamant he will miss regular season games if the Seahawks do not address his contract. Seattle could likely get Chancellor in the door by restructuring his deal so he gets more money up front, but they have shown few signs a restructure is in the cards. This stalemate appears likely to extend into the season.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports the Giants have "serious interest" in Seahawks holdout SS Kam Chancellor.

Considering they have the worst safety situation in the league, the Giants' interest is not surprising. The Seahawks would probably demand the farm for their star safety, who still has three-years left on his deal. The most likely outcome is the Seahawks give Chancellor more money up front while adding a year to his deal, but Seattle is running out of time to get something done.
Sep 5 - 4:56 PM

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole expects the Seahawks to add a year to hold-out SS Kam Chancellor's contract while giving him more money up front.

In other words, Cole expects the Seahawks to cave. Chancellor has not budged an inch in his holdout and has consistently said he is willing to miss regular season games to get what he wants. With barely more than a week left until the start of the regular season, Seattle is running out of time to get Chancellor in the fold before Week 1.
