An old tweet regarding the naming of Seahawks captains has created a mini-stir on Twitter, since it appeared that the Seahawks had made safety Kam Chancellor a defensive captain. It was a major surprise, given that Chancellor skipped training camp and the preseason — and hasn’t shown up yet. But the tweet referred to the 2014 season, so it sheds no light on the current relationship between the Seahawks and Chancellor.
Which prompted me to attempt to shed light on the current relationship between the Seahawks and Chancellor.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, nothing has changed. With six days to go until the regular-season opener against the Rams, the clock is now ticking loudly.
Many in the media have insisted that Chancellor would never miss a game check; few players ever would. But Chancellor is cutting it close enough that, at least for now, it makes sense to pay attention to this one on a daily basis.
Preparations for the Week One game begin in earnest on Wednesday. Chancellor would lose more than $267,000 if he doesn’t show up.
