Great news for fans of the Seattle Seahawks!
Pro Bowl strong safety Kam Chancellor, who is the heart and soul of Seattle’s defense, has decided to end his holdout.
Kam returned to the team facility on Wednesday morning, which marked the first time since June’s minicamp that he had been spotted on scene.
Chancellor, who had been holding out in hopes of having his contract restructured, told ESPN’s Stephen Smith that he intends to revisit his contract situation after the conclusion of this season:
“Ima go help my teammates that are understanding of my position and the ones who aren’t,” Chancellor stated in a text message to Smith. “God forgives all, why can’t I? Time to help us get back to the big dance. I can address business after this season. Me and Marshawn started a mission 2 years ago. I can’t let my Dawg down… Real talk.”
Chancellor had signed a four-year $28million extension after the 2012 season, but wanted more money after proving to be one of the league’s best defenders over the course of the last two seasons.
Without Chancellor in the lineup, the Seahawks D has looked like a shell of their former self, and the team has started 0-2.
Will the addition of Kam get the Seahawks back to the form which saw them win back-to-back NFC Championships? Time will tell…
