They said he’d never miss a game check. Barring a last-minute change of heart, he will.
Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor continues to hold out for an adjustment to the three remaining years of his contract. On Friday, coach Pete Carroll told reporters there has been no change to Chancellor’s status.
Carroll’s statement came one day after running back Marshawn Lynch made a strong statement by wearing Chancellor’s jersey to practice.
“I thought it was a statement that all of us understand,” Carroll said. “We all wish Kam was here. So I have no problem with it. We don’t need to keep doing it, but I think it was just that.”
So while Carroll seems to not want to see it a second time, he seems to be OK with the fact that it happened once.
“It’s over,” Carroll said. “It’s done. It’s just not a big deal. You can try to make it a big deal but it wasn’t.”
The entire situation is definitely a big deal for the Seahawks, who play the Rams on Sunday in the team’s first game since swallowing one of the most bitter Super Bowl pills in NFL history.
