If Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor continues his holdout through Week 2, the cost of his refusal to play will reach $2.1 million.
Through Sunday, when the Seahawks lost to the Rams 34–31, Chancellor had amassed $1.87 million in fines, forfeitures and lost wages, reports Pro Football Talk. An additional $267,000 is set to be added to that number this week if he continues to hold out, and there has been no sign of negotiations progressing.
On Monday, Seattle coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle there had been no change in Chancellor’s situation.
“There is not much going on right now,“ Carroll said. “It's pretty quiet.”
Chancellor held out for all of the Seahawks’ training camp and preseason to express his displeasure with his current contract, a four-year, $28 million extension he signed before the 2013 season. He has three years left on the deal, and was scheduled to make $4,550,000 this season.
The MMQB’s Peter King believes Chancellor could hold out for the entire season.
Seattle will take on the Packers at Lambeau Field in Week 2.
