Kam Chancellor expected to end holdout, return to Seahawks Wednesday

New, comments

The Seahawks get a big return, as safety Kam Chancellor is expected to end his holdout this week.

ESPN is reporting that Kam Chancellor is set to end his holdout and return to the Seattle Seahawks on Wednesday. Chancellor has been absent from the team since the start of training camp, looking to re-work his contract. There is no word yet on if he is getting anything adjusted on his deal. Ian Rapoport is reporting Chancellor is just headed back to speak with management, but he apparently texted Stephen A. Smith saying he was headed back.

The return is certainly a big thing for the Seahawks defense. The team as a whole has struggled through the first two weeks, dropping to 0-2. Their run defense has been fairly solid without the big hitter, but he brings so much to the back end of that defense. It might take a couple weeks to get him back in sync with the group, but it certainly will help them.

The good news for the Seahawks is Kam's first game back would be a home game against a Chicago Bears team that is starting Jimmy Clausen in place of an injured Jay Cutler. Even without Chancellor, the Seahawks defense would do serious damage. Add in Chancellor and it could be a long day for the Bears.
