Report: Kam Chancellor wants more money, could hold out from training camp
SEATTLE — Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor says he is “strongly considering” holding out of training camp unless he can renegotiate his contract for more money, NFL Network reports.
NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport broke the news on Twitter around 9 a.m. Wednesday morning.
Chancellor, 27, is set to make $4.5 million this year, after signing a 4-year, $28 million contract in 2013. He is in contract through 2017.
Training camp for the Seahawks is set to begin Friday.
Chancellor is an integral part of the Seahawks defensive backfield, nicknamed the Legion of Boom. Most even consider him crucial, Profootballtalk.com reports, especially as safety Earl Thomas’ struggles with a shoulder injury and may not start the season with the team.
Chancellor combined for 78 tackles and one interception in the 2014 regular season.
