Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor’s fines and forfeitures for his contract holdout have reached $1.87 million and they continue to climb.
But a little less than half that amount may be all that stands between him and a return.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, there appears to be some framework for a compromise.
The two sides have talked during camp, even though he wasn’t there, and he’s looking for $9 million in 2016. The Seahawks have reportedly offered $8.1 million. He’s currently scheduled to make $5.1 million next season.
Of course, the difference of $900,000 isn’t the only thing between them, as Chancellor also wants his fines waived. That’s something the Seahawks apparently aren’t willing to completely forgive.
But for a messy situation that has wiped out training camp and spilled into the regular season, there could be room for the two sides to figure out a way forward.
