Published Add your comment

The Seattle Seahawks drama with star safety Kam Chancellor continues to rumble on, even with the season opener just days away.

As Seattle's most recent depth chart shows, the Super Bowl runners up are preparing to open their 2015 season without their brute of a secondary star.

And, as the Pro Bowler continues his hold out in search of a new contract, he has hit out at the Seahawks while speaking to an NFL Network employee.

$1Million Apart

A short time after Pete Carroll revealed that the star safety wouldn't be playing in the season opener, Chancellor reached out to Dan Hellie of NFL Network to give his opinion and version of events in the saga.

Hellie reported on NFL Total Access that Chancellor told him he is willing to meet Seattle halfway and that the two sides are less than $1 million dollars apart.

No New Money

Chancellor reportedly said that he's not looking for new money, but wants some of his salary that is currently allocated for the 2017 season to be moved to 2016. Chancellor used the word "petty" in describing the negotiations, according to Hellie.

"He told me he feels like this whole thing could be over by now," Hellie said Chancellor messaged him.

The Seahawks are also concerned that if they give in to Chancellor, every other player will threaten to hold out unless they get advanced some of their future salary. It's a dangerous game to play for both Chancellor and the Seahawks, with no one knowing when this holdout will end.
