After the Seattle Seahawks got off to a dismal 0-2 start to the 2015 regular season, holdout S Kam Chancellor was visibly missed in the secondary. After watching other players on the roster have their contract extended this past season, Chancellor decided that he would hold out and try to renegotiate a new deal. Unfortunately for the veteran safety, he had two years remaining on his deal and the Seattle front office decided to take a hard line stance.
His teammates begged for Chancellor to return during national media interviews and his absence was notable in the Seahawks defensive secondary.
Chancellor confirmed his intent to return to the team thru an e-mail to ESPN host, Stephen A. Smith this morning.
The safety has been docked two game checks so far this season by not reporting, totaling just over $500,000.00 It remains to be seen if the Seahawks will enforce the fine or simply let it slide at this point.
Seattle opens their season at home this Sunday, facing the reeling 0-2 Chicago Bears who will be starting Jimmy Clausen under center. I do not envy Clausen this week. It could get very ugly, very early.
