Pete Carroll: Never been a negotiation with Kam Chancellor

RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks began their work week Wednesday in preparation for Sunday night's matchup with the Green Bay Packers, and Kam Chancellor was once again nowhere to be found.

Asked to provide an update, coach Pete Carroll said: "Nothing has changed. It really has never been a negotiation. It's been conversations. Nothing's changed though. ... I'm just disappointed like I know he is and everybody is that it hasn't found a way to get him here. That's all. Been disappointed about it."

Chancellor will lose out on another $267,647 if he continues his holdout through the weekend.

Dion Bailey started in Chancellor's place at strong safety in Week 2. Bailey struggled against the St. Louis Rams, giving up the game-tying touchdown down the stretch in regulation.

"I think our guys have dealt with everything that comes at us in really straight-up fashion and really focused on playing football and doing the best we can," Carroll said. "We can't coach the guy who's not here, can't do anything about it."

Asked what could happen to resolve the situation, Carroll said: "He needs to come back in. We need to get him in.

"At this point, I don't know anything different than what I've known. It's the same thoughts we've had all along, which is about as wishy-washy as I can be with that answer."
