RENTON, Wash. — The Seahawks activated star safety Kam Chancellor and waived safety Dion Bailey on Saturday.
Chancellor reported to the team's facility Wednesday, ending a holdout that started when he missed the first day of training camp July 31 and lingered through the 0-2 start to the regular season.
At issue for Chancellor was his contract and having future money paid sooner. He signed a $28 million, four-year extension during the 2013 offseason but that did not take effect until a year later. The Seahawks refused to budge on restructuring a deal that had so much time remaining, believing it would lead to a stream of players seeking new deals in the early stages of their contracts. Chancellor, one of the league's top safeties and a leader of the "Legion of Boom" secondary, was scheduled to make $4.55 million in base salary this season before missing two game checks. He is scheduled to make $5.1 million in 2016 and $6.8 million in 2017.
