Pete Carroll expects Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor to play Sunday against visiting Chicago, per 790 KGMI. The Seahawks will monitor his snaps, but it sounds as if he'll likely get the start. Chancellor missed all of training camp and the first two regular-season games while holding out. He had 78 tackles in 14 games last year after topping 95 tackles in each of the previous three seasons.
Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor will end his nearly three-month holdout and report to the Seahawks on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter's report quoted a text sent to ESPN colleague Stephen A. Smith from Chancellor that said, "Time to help us get back to the big dance. I can address business after the season." There was no word on whether Chancellor and the Seahawks struck a deal or if Chancellor is returning empty handed. In any event, he will almost certainly play Sunday against the Bears.
Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is not expected to suit up against the Packers on Sunday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Dion Bailey will most likely get the start at strong safety once again. If Chancellor does indeed miss Week 2's game against the Packers, he could be fined more than $2 million by the Seahawks, which is a tough pill to swallow considering NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the team and Chancellor were less than $1 million apart.
Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor continued his holdout Wednesday, which forced coach Pete Carroll to rule him out for the season opener against the Rams. "He's not here right and so he's not playing," Carroll said, per The Seattle Times. "Today is Wednesday." Carroll added he was disappointed Chancellor has continued to remain away from the team. "I am disappointed in this very much so," Carroll said. "I think everybody should be because he's been a great part of our team. It's unfortunate that it's come to this and he's not here. "I'm just going to take it like this is Wednesday and we'll just see what happens next. If this is Wednesday I'm probably going to be speaking the same way next week, saying the same thing to you." Dion Bailey will start in Chancellor's absence.
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed the team has received calls regarding safety Kam Chancellor, who continues to hold out over a contract dispute. However, Carroll added the Seahawks have no interest in trading the star safety. "There have been a couple phone calls from other teams, people kind of wondering what's going on," Carroll told reporters Monday, per seattlepi.com. "We're really not interested in talking to them about that, so we don't."
