Seahawks sign safety Kam Chancellor to 3-year extension


Chancellor was entering the final year of his contract and is now signed through the 2020 season. That last piece may be resolved sooner rather than later.

Former Virginia Tech safety Kam Chancellor signed a contract extension to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Last season Chancellor, a fifth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, accounted for 81 combined tackles, two interceptions and eight passes defensed in 12 games. Almost one year ago, Chancellor reflected on the lessons he learned from the holdout.

Chancellor has helped the Seahawks to a Super Bowl victory over the Denver Broncos in February 2014 and earned himself spots in the 2014 and 2016 pro bowl.




Chancellor, 29, has been Seattle's starting strong safety since 2011 and one of the key locker room leaders. The deal is worth $36 million over three years with $25 million guaranteed, per the report. Chancellor hasn't started more than 14 games in a season since 2013.

His extension will make that a very real possibility, something that may have been hard to imagine two years ago - nearly to the day - when Chancellor began what would become a protracted and bitter holdout that lasted two games into the regular season.

"As long as the wheels let me", Chancellor said (via ESPN). "Both sides have been very productive working together and just waiting to see what's happening". I can't really put a time frame on how long I want to play. "It's however long my body holds up, and however long the Lord allows me". "And I would love to retire here". "They gave me my first opportunity, the only opportunity".
