Kam Chancellor Refocused on Teammates After 2015 Holdout
RENTON, Wash. (AP) — After a contentious holdout last year that extended two weeks into the regular season, Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is enjoying football again.
Chancellor is smiling and joking with teammates again. It's an aspect of Chancellor's personality that wasn't often on display after he returned to the team last season.
Chancellor missed the first two games of 2015 as the Seahawks went 0-2 without him. However, Chancellor's holdout resulted in nothing gained for the star safety and a massive amount of fines for the missed time.
He returned to the team and played in 11 regular-season games. An injured tailbone kept him out for three weeks in December. But despite not getting the new contract he desired, Chancellor says he has managed to turn the page on the contractual front and focus once again on his teammates.
Everyone reported for camp on time and the Seahawks feel strongly about the roster they've constructed.
