Seahawks activate Kam Chancellor, bounce Dion Bailey

Dion Bailey, Lance Kendricks


The man who fell down in a few moment of a Week One loss to the Rams has fallen off the Seattle roster.

The Seahawks officially have activated safety Kam Chancellor for Sunday’s home opener against the Bears. To create a space for Chancellor on the roster, the Seahawks have waived Dion Bailey.

Bailey made a glaring error 13 days ago, falling down while covering Rams tight end Lance Kendricks, who scored an overtime-forcing touchdown.

Chancellor’s activation is no surprise; his holdout ended on Wednesday. The question is whether he’ll get extensive playing time at a time when he may be in great physical shape, but clearly isn’t in football shape.
