Former Seahawks fullback and NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson said SS Kam Chancellor is willing to sit out the entire season.
"From what I know of the situation, yeah," Robinson said. "He’s dug in. He really feels that they have the ability to pay him." The Seahawks have been in talks with Chancellor, but there hasn't been any progress with his contract situation. Chancellor would forfeit more than $264,000 per game if his holdout carries into the regular season. Aug 21 - 8:15 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is prepared to extend his holdout into the regular season.

Per Schefter, Chancellor is "not close to budging." Coach Pete Carroll says the sides have maintained an open dialogue, but Chancellor isn't buying whatever the Seahawks are selling. With FS Earl Thomas still rehabbing his shoulder injury, Chancellor isn't entirely without leverage, but he's unlikely to earn anything other than a ceremonial raise or token guarantee.

ESPN Seattle’s Brady Henderson reports SS Kam Chancellor’s holdout has "no immediate end in sight."

Chancellor isn’t showing any signs of ending his holdout three weeks into camp. He’s seeking more guaranteed money on the final two years of his deal, and is reportedly willing to miss regular season games. Coach Pete Carroll said earlier this week the sides have remained in communication, but "nothing has changed."

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said conversations are ongoing with holdout SS Kam Chancellor, but his status remains the same.

Set to make $16.45 million over the final three years of his deal, Chancellor has threatened to miss regular season games if he does not receive a raise. The Seahawks have not traditionally negotiated with players with multiple years left on their deals, but Earl Thomas' (shoulder) uncertainty for Week 1 could give Chancellor the leverage he needs. Chancellor received PFF's No. 20 safety grade last season.
Aug 13 - 2:37 PM

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports holdout Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is looking for "better cash flow" over the next two seasons.

That would presumably entail guaranteeing a good chunk of Chancellor's $5.1 million salary for 2016. All but $10,000 of his $4.55 million salary for this season is already guaranteed. Chancellor is looking for a raise, pure and simple. For the moment, the Seahawks seem extremely unlikely to grant it. Anderson has reported Chancellor is willing to miss regular season games, something we have an extremely hard time believing.
Aug 6 - 7:13 PM

According to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor's holdout could stretch into the regular season "if the two sides can't reach middle ground."

Chancellor thinks he deserves more than his current $4.55 million salary and is (reportedly) willing to miss regular season games to make his point. It's going to be tough for the Seahawks to accommodate him after Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner's huge deals. Chancellor received PFF's No. 20 safety grade last season. The Seahawks can fine him up to $30,000 for every day he misses.
Aug 6 - 10:38 AM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor was a no-show for the start of training camp on Thursday.

Word spread Wednesday that Chancellor was considering a holdout, and it appears he's followed through. That being said, it doesn't become official until Chancellor skips Friday's practice. Chancellor is already one of the league's highest-paid safeties, but he must think the time is right to angle for a raise with FS Earl Thomas (shoulder) shaky for Week 1. ESPN's Jim Trotter has reported the 'Hawks have "no intentions" of giving in. Chancellor risks $30,000 a day in fines.
Jul 30 - 9:47 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor "wants more money" and is considering a training-camp holdout.

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.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (MCL) has been a full participant in OTAs.

Chancellor played through a torn MCL in the Super Bowl, but is back to full health. Heading into his age-27 season, Chancellor was a second-team All Pro in 2014.
May 26 - 4:16 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor played through a torn MCL in the Super Bowl.

Chancellor's knee injury was more serious than just a bruise. Unlike Earl Thomas (shoulder) and potentially Richard Sherman (elbow), he shouldn't require offseason surgery. Chancellor is signed through 2017 and will return at a $4.55 million base salary.
Feb 4 - 7:32 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor is active for Super Bowl XLIX.

Feb 1 - 4:42 PM

Jan 31 - 4:34 PM

Bleacher Report's Will Carroll reports the injury that forced Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (probable) from Friday's practice was just a bruise.

Chancellor fell directly on the knee late in practice, but he was able to walk off the field without a limp. His status for the Super Bowl is not in doubt.
Jan 31 - 1:26 PM

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor exited Friday's practice with a wrap on his left knee.

This is why he was added to the injury report and listed as probable. Per Super Bowl pool reporter Peter King, Chancellor missed the final rep of practice after falling near the goal line on the second to last play. The probable listing indicates the Seahawks aren't worried about Chancellor's availability for Sunday's matchup with Rob Gronkowski.
