    Appears that Kam Chancellor has been trying to get more guaranteed money from the Seahawks:

    It does not appear that Kam has any leverage with the team so I am not sure why they would actually re-negotiate his deal. Additionally, I think he is pretty replaceable in their defense and in what they are trying to do. Because I dislike the Seahawks, I hope they re-negotiate and tie up more of their cap into Kam Chancellor so they have to either re-sign or cut some of their other studs in the defense.

    I think that Kam thinks that because Earl Thomas is not going to be available he can squeeze out something extra.

    Superbowl effect! We were there twice, we are all obviously really good and all deserve to be paid like it. Salary Cap? Don't try to tell me about no salary cap, just make it happen!

    He never needed to learn how to get leverage because all they do is play zone coverage.

    Kam has zero leverage with three years on his deal. If I was the GM I would say go ahead and sit. Guarantee he wont be gone when he starts missing game checks.

    Supposedly he doesn't want more money added on. Just more moved into this year.

    I am fine with him holding out. the Hags defense runs through Kam...they will be much easier to beat without him on the field.

    I guess the seahawks are gonna give him some upfront cash and an extra year. If they do it for one they need to do that for the whole team. ;)

    They should have a new offer to him by morning.

    Btw, what kind of an idiot is Pete Carroll?

    I really don't think so. It would be hell for them, and every other team in the league, to set that kind of precedent.

    I hope they don't, because they really need him. Since I hate the Seahawks, I hope they don't do the smart thing. Their defense is hurting without him.
