Kam Chancellor signs contract extension with Seahawks
Aug 02 2017
The deal is for three three years, $36 million, with $25 in guaranteed money, according to ESPN's Josina Anderson. Assuming the new extension adds three years onto that deal as opposed to replacing it, Chancellor, 29, will be under contract with Seattle through the 2020 season. This is a good possibility as the veteran safety will be 33 years old at the end of his contract. One of the scariest players in the National Football League is one step closer to retiring with the team that drafted him in 2010. 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.
"I'm not the same rookie I was seven years ago". Right from the start of camp, Chancellor expressed his optimism about a new deal.
Chancellor is a leader for the defense, so the Seahawks made it a priority to extend him past this season.
Reporters asked Chancellor Monday about how long he wanted to keep playing football.
