It’s been an expensive two weeks for Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor.
A week after he was fined $20,000 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ravens receiver Anquan Boldin, a league source tells PFT that Chancellor — a member of Peter King’s midseason All-Pro team — has been fined $40,000 for an illegal shoulder-to-helmet hit on Rams tight end Lance Kendricks.
Earlier Wednesday, Chancellor declined to tell reporters that he’d received a new fine, but he said he won’t change the way he plays.
“They ask me to compete and they tell me stay in the middle of the field and protect the middle so I’m going to compete like I know how to, hit as correct as they want me to and play the game like I know how to,” Chancellor said, per the Associated Press.
For a guy who’s making a base salary of only $450,000 in his second NFL season, he’s eventually going to be playing for free. More than 13 percent of his entire pre-tax compensation already has been targeted for collection by the league office, subject to appeal.
