Seahawks’ Michael Bennett says Kam Chancellor should be paid

Tuesday October 6th, 2015

It's clear what side Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett falls on when it comes to the recent contract dispute between safety Kam Chancellor and team management.

Following the team’s 13–10 win over the Detroit Lions on Monday night, Bennett jumped behind Chancellor while he was being interviewed on the sideline, yelling, "pay him! pay him!" 

Chancellor was being interviewed in part due to a forced fumble on Lions receiver Calvin Johnson, who seemed to be going in for the go-ahead score with little time left in the fourth quarter. 

Chancellor is currently on a four-year, $28 million contract extension that he signed after the 2012 season, but held out through the first two games of the season as he looked for a restructured deal. The Seahawks, however, have refused to redo a contract on a deal with three years remaining.
