As Seattle Seahawks' most recent depth chart suggests, the Super Bowl runners up are preparing to open their 2015 season without star safety Kam Chancellor.
And, as the Pro Bowler continues his hold out in search of a new contract, the prospect of being without him for Week One might just be the beginning of Seattle's problems.
According to ESPN's Ed Werder, one member of the Seahawks locker room doesn't believe Chancellor will be back with the team at all this year.

Considering the financial implications such a lengthy holdout would incur, the idea that Kam Chancellor doesn't suit up for the Seattle franchise at all in 2015 would be a bold one.
The 27-year-old has already racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fines stemming from his OTA/preseason holdout, but missing an entire season would take his losses to a new level.
Indeed, as reported by ProFootballTalk, Chancellor would sacrifice over $250,000 for every week he holds out from here on in.
Losing out on all of his $4.55 million salary in 2015 when his entire holdout is an effort to increase his income would be foolish.
What's more, if Chancellor misses the whole year - as one of his teammates fears - it will only prolong his current contract situation. Staying away for a full year would mean his 2017 contract expiration date would be pushed back until the 2018 season - hardly ideal for a man looking to move on from the deal altogether.
