The second-team All-Pro strong safety was absent again from camp on Wednesday as he continues to seek a new contract from the team. Head coach Pete Carroll said it's an issue of concern for both sides. Carroll said he has not had any communication with Chancellor in a few days.
''Here we have to keep moving and he knows that's what we are called to do and so we're going to do that,'' Carroll said. ''But it's a very difficult time for him I think.''
In addition to the $30,000 a day the team can fine him for his holdout, the Seahawks can now seek a percentage of Chancellor's prorated signing bonus. His daily fines have reached $180,000 with an additional $150,000 kicking in for his sixth day missed.
