Report: Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor could hold out

Wednesday July 29th, 2015

Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor wants to be paid more money and could hold out of training camp to angle for a new deal,’s Ian Rapoport reports

Chancellor has three more years remaining on his current contract and stands to make $4.6 million this season. He signed a four-year extension in 2013 after he was named to his second Pro Bowl. Chancellor was a Pro Bowl selection again in 2014. 

Free safety Earl Thomas and Chancellor form a hard-hitting tandem in Seattle’s secondary and have helped anchor a Seahawks defense that has allowed the fewest points in the NFL in each of the past three seasons. Thomas will not be ready to participate when training camp begins, as he is still recovering from off-season shoulder surgery. 

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett could also hold out, but is more likely to report to training camp than Chancellor, Rapoport adds
