Earlier today, MDS pointed out that Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor would lose more than $264,000 for each game check he misses, if his holdout extends into the regular season. The real question is whether he would he miss all 17 of the regular-season game checks.
“From what I know of the situation, yeah,” former Seahawks fullback and current NFL Network analyst Michael Robinson said earlier tonight on NFL Total Access. “He’s dug in. He really feels that they have the ability to pay him.”
Robinson said he has spoken on multiple occasions to Chancellor about the situation.
“Kam is not only a leader on this defense, he’s a team leader. He’s a guy that he can go to and be able to talk to a guy like Marshawn [Lynch], be able to talk to a guy on the offensive side of the ball to get him straight. He is everything to this team. I know there are guys out there making plays for the Seahawks right now, but nobody’s Kam Chancellor. Nobody sets the tone physically like Kam Chancellor. . . . He is the boom to the Legion of Boom.”
The boom has gone bust for 23 days and counting, with no indication that the Seahawks will do anything to enhance Chancellor’s contract. If no one blinks, the Seahawks may have to figure out how to get by without him in 2015.
