Kam Chancellor Earns Contract Extension


The extension comes two years after Chancellor requested a new contract before the 2015 season. That last piece may be resolved sooner rather than later.

The "Legion of Boom" hit payday early in August, with Kam Chancellor getting a three-year extension from the Seattle Seahawks.

Chancellor caused havoc on opposing offenses in his career with the Hokies, posting 208 career tackles and 4.5 TFL before being drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth round in 2010. Almost one year ago, Chancellor reflected on the lessons he learned from the holdout.

Widely considered the leader of the Seahawks' defense, Chancellor will now be under contract with the team through 2020. Yet, even with those injuries, Chancellor is still a valuable member of the Seahawks' secondary and defensive unit as a whole, resulting in the team making the decision to sign him to a new deal.

The deal, first reported by ESPN's Josina Anderson, includes $25 million in guaranteed money.


At $12 million a year (the full details of the contract have yet to be released) Chancellor would be the third-highest paid Seahawk on an annual basis behind QB Russell Wilson ($21.75 million per season) and cornerback Richard Sherman ($14 million per season).

"Hopefully it'll get done any time now", said Kam Chancellor, via Sheil Kapadia of ESPN.com. "But I feel like it's been positive on both ends, both sides have been very productive working together and I'm just waiting to see what's happening".

Chancellor was the No. 18 ranked safety in the NFL last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

"I really don't like to put no negative thoughts in my head", Chancellor said Monday.

"I love this team". However long my body holds up, however long the Lord allows me to.
