Article 45 (injury protection) as it applies to Seahawks

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE RATING: PG-13

  • So Avril, Shead, Chancellor, all fall under this umbrella and could be released with minimum ramifications as far as salary then and just receive the benefit payout? Pending a failed Physical of course.

  • This has not really gotten into what happens if Cliff and Kam are not CLEARED to play. Something like the Zach Orr situation from two seasons ago. The player wanted to play but no doctors would clear him to play.

    Does this apply to Shead and Chancellor? Shead was able to play the last game of the season and is not under contract next year. Chancellor still has guaranteed paragraph 5 salary; in addition, a prorated portion of Kam's signing bonus will still hit the cap if he is cut.

  • Avril and Sherman fall under the umbrella. Shead is not covered because he is not under contract for 2018 ...... neither are Oday Aboushi or Josh Forrest.

    Chancellor has guarantees that will kick in following the Super Bowl ......
    At issue is that five days after the Super Bowl Kam’s entire 2018 base salary of $6.8M becomes fully guaranteed. That would be February 10th, and once February 10th arrives and that money is fully guaranteed, there is absolutely nothing the Seahawks can do to avoid paying Chancellor. Add that $6.8M base salary on top of the $7.5M in dead money from the prorated portion of his signing bonus, and all of a sudden the 2018 cap hit to release Chancellor would become a cap crippling $14.3M, which would be devastating for a team already dealing with a tight cap situation for 2018. ...............

    ............. Under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement, NFL teams are forbidden from cutting injured players during the league year in which the injury is sustained. This means the earliest the Hawks could cut Chancellor, assuming his neck injury is still an issue, would be when the 2018 NFL League Year starts in March.


    Baring some kind of settlement, seems like the most likely outcome for Chancellor in 2018 is for him to be carried on the active roster or the PUP at a 2018 cap charge of $9,581,250.

    Thanks, confirms what I was thinking. I hadn't considered Sherman.
