The Seattle Seahawks don't look like budging any time soon when it comes to handing Pro Bowl safety Kam Chancellor the new contract he is currently holding out in the hope of acquiring.
As such, the team's famed 'Legion of Boom' defense could begin the 2015 NFL season without one of their key cogs. One team though is looking to make sure that dominant defense will always be without Kam Chancellor.
Making the call
According to a report over the weekend, the Seattle franchise took a call from the New York Giants about a potential trade that would mean Chancellor never rejoins his Seahawks teammates.

It is unclear how receptive Seattle were to the enquiry but, even with the star safety causing disruption with his offseason holdout, it would be a shock to many to see the NFC West team do business.
"There were reports on Saturday that the Giants and Seahawks were engaged in “serious” trade discussions, but one team source indicated the call was mostly to express an interest and gauge the situation and perhaps the price."
The Giants have seen their secondary depth chart consistently disrupted by injury in the run up to the 2015 season, so bringing in a three-time Pro Bowler at this stage would obviously be a huge boost.
However, even if Seattle are willing to get around the negotiating table, the trade price for one of the most dominant players in his position in the entire NFL would likely be enough to make most franchises baulk.
