The Seattle Seahawks head in to the 2015 NFL season in a state of flux.
After being just one play away from winning back-to-back Super Bowls, the Seahawks come in to the new campaign looking to avenge their loss to the Patriots, with the addition of Jimmy Graham giving them a huge helping hand, especially on those pesky red-zone passing plays.
But all isn't well in Seattle, with Kam Chancellor having been on a hold-out for the entire preseason, which could stretch in to the actual regular season itself. But Pete Carroll doesn't seem too worried.

The Seahawks don't seem to be bending to the safety's demands and Chancellor is just sitting at home. But Seattle have absolutely no interest in trading the All-Pro star.
The Seahawks head coach Carroll spoke to reporters on Monday after practice and said that the Seahawks aren’t interested in making a deal.
“There have been a couple phone calls from other teams, people just kind of wondering what’s going on,” Carroll said, via the Seattle Times. “We’re really not interested in talking to them about that, so we don’t.”
So Chancellor remains the property of the Seahawks for the next three years. And the question remains whether he’ll give up game checks in excess of $267,000 each to prove his point.
Carroll said that Dion Bailey will take Chancellor’s place this weekend, if Chancellor decides he wants to carry on his holdout in to the season.
