Seattle's tone changes as Chancellor holdout reaches 6th day
Aug. 05, 2015
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Kam Chancellor's holdout from Seattle Seahawks' training camp has extended to a sixth day.
The second-team All-Pro strong safety was absent again from camp on Wednesday as he continues to seek a new contract from the team. Head coach Pete Carroll said it's an issue of concern for both sides. Carroll said he has not had any communication with Chancellor in a few days.
"Here we have to keep moving and he knows that's what we are called to do and so we're going to do that," Carroll said. "But it's a very difficult time for him I think."
In addition to the $30,000 a day the team can fine him for his holdout, the Seahawks can now seek a percentage of Chancellor's prorated signing bonus. His daily fines have reached $180,000 with an additional $150,000 kicking in for his sixth day missed.
