The Seahawks are not “willing to entertain any trade talks,” reports Rapoport. The report did not state which other teams have tried trading for Chancellor.
The safety is currently holding out from the Seahawks in hopes of a new contract. The holdout began at the start of training camp near the end of July, and is expected to spill into the regular season.
Chancellor, a captain for Seattle last season, has three years left on a four-year extension he signed in 2013. He will make $4.6 million on the current deal this season.
Rapoport reports Chancellor and Seattle have made no progress in contract talks.
NFL teams were required to cut rosters to 53 players Saturday. Chancellor will not count against the Seahawks’ roster until he reports to the team.
The Seahawks open the upcoming season against the St. Louis Rams on Sept. 13.
