Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said “a couple teams” have called to express trade interest in safety Kam Chancellor, according to Gregg Bell of The News Tribune (on Twitter). However, he said that Seattle not interested in any sort of trade involving Chancellor, despite his holdout.
Carroll wouldn’t name names, but Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News confirms that the Giants were among those clubs inquiring on Chancellor. As Carroll alluded to, however, Vacchiano hears that the Seahawks either won’t part with Chancellor or, if they do entertain offers, they’ll set an absurdly high asking price.
Here’s more on the Seahawks safety..
- With days to go before the start of the regular season, nothing has changed between the two sides, a source with knowledge of the situation tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
- Carroll echoed that sentiment in a morning chat with710 ESPN Seattle, telling beat writers that “everything is pretty well stated” and that the team is unlikely to budge on its position despite how things may go in the first few games of the season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times tweets. Carroll also called this “an important week” to see where things with Chancellor are headed (link).
