That last piece may be resolved sooner rather than later.
Chancellor signed a three-year contract extension with Seattle on Tuesday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reports.
Two years after a holdout forced the Seahawks to play a pair of games without Kam Chancellor, the franchise and their star safety have come to terms on a new pact. The Seahawks' key defensive players, composed of Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett, are now signed to long-term deals.
Chancellor held out in hopes of scoring a new contract in 2015, but the team held fast even as the strong safety missed two regular season games.
With this deal, the Seahawks now have committed $123 million in guaranteed money to their secondary.

In the second half, Ivan Perisic drilled home from an angle in the 53rd minute after great build-up work by Stevan Jovetic to make it 2-0.
"I love this team", Chancellor said, via ESPN's Sheil Kapadia. Chancellor ended that holdout without getting a new deal from the Seahawks, who said they didn't want to revisit the deal because it had three years remaining.
Chancellor, 29, started 12 games past year and played at a high level with two interceptions, a forced fumble and 85 tackles. "Till the wheels fall off". However long the Lord allows me to.
"I really don't like to put no negatives in my head", he said. However long my body holds up. "It's never up to me".
Set to begin his eighth season in the National Football League, with all being played for the Seahawks, Chancellor has earned four Pro Bowl selections during his career with the most recent coming in 2015. "And I would love to retire here".
