Report: Kam Chancellor is ending his holdout

Should Seahawks Players Be Mad at Kam Chancellor?


Kam Chancellor will reportedly end his holdout and return to the Seattle Seahawks today. ESPN's Adam Schefter and Stephen A. Smith first reported the news.

According to a post on Schefter's Facebook page, Chancellor texted Smith the following:

Ima go help my teammates that are understanding of my position and the ones who aren't. God forgives all, why can't i? Time to help us get back to the big dance . I can address business after the season. Me and Marshawn started a mission 2 years ago. I can't let my Dawg down....Real talk.

Chancellor, Seattle's hard-hitting All-Pro safety, has been holding out since the preseason. Because the Seahawks have a firm policy to only renegotiate contracts in their final year, they had refused to cave into the demands of Chancellor, whose contract expires in 2017.

As of early this week, Chancellor's fines for the holdout surpassed $2 million. NFL Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Seahawks held firm on this policy, meaning Chancellor ultimately did not get more money and the holdout was effectively a failure. The question now is whether or not the Seahawks front office will waive his fines.


With reports out of Seattle suggesting his teammates were fed up with the holdout, and Seattle limping to an 0-2 start, it's fitting that Chancellor is returning.
