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. Apr 5 - 2:44 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.
Apr 3 - 12:31 PM

Seahawks GM John Schneider declined to say if SS Kam Chancellor will be back next season.

Chancellor has two non-guaranteed years remaining on his current deal. Releasing him would save $4.1 million, but Seattle has $26M in cap space. The Seahawks' top in-house free agents are LT Russell Okung, OLB Bruce Irvin, and WR Jermaine Kearse.
Jan 23 - 9:01 PM

Seahawks declared SS Kam Chancellor (tailbone) inactive for Week 15 against the Browns.

Chancellor bruised his tailbone "pretty good" last week, and the Seahawks should have no problem beating Cleveland at home even without Chancellor. CB DeShawn Shead (ankle) is active.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said SS Kam Chancellor (tailbone, questionable) will be a game-time decision.

Chancellor bruised his tailbone "pretty good" last week, and the Seahawks are unlikely to need his services to beat the Browns at home. It would not be surprising if he sat this one out. Carroll said CB DeShawn Shead (ankle, questionable) will play.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (tailbone) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Chancellor may not play much if he's active; his injury is considered somewhat significant and the Seahawks should be able to whip the Browns at home without risking an aggravation to one of their top defensive players.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 04:05:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said it is "unlikely" SS Kam Chancellor (tailbone) practices Wednesday.

Chancellor bruised his tailbone "pretty good" against the Ravens. He has not been ruled out for Week 15, but his chances of playing seem slim. Kelcie McCray will get the start if Chancellor cannot go. It is a downgrade, but it is one the Seahawks can likely endure against the Browns.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor exited Week 14 against the Ravens with a tailbone injury.

Chancellor suffered the injury on the Ravens' second drive of the game and never returned. Coach Pete Carroll said after the game Chancellor has a chance to play Week 15. His status will be updated throughout the week.

Seahawks placed SS Kam Chancellor on the active roster.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Chancellor will play against the Bears. Coach Pete Carroll said earlier in the week it is "not unrealistic" Chancellor plays four quarters, but it is unlikely he gets in a full complement of snaps after missing all of training camp and the first two weeks of the season.
Sat, Sep 26, 2015 02:00:00 PM

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.
Fri, Sep 25, 2015 07:30:00 PM

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.
Wed, Sep 23, 2015 09:34:00 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.
Tue, Sep 22, 2015 12:00:00 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.
Sat, Sep 19, 2015 10:43:00 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.
