Seattle Seahawks ink SS Kam Chancellor to $36M extension

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports that the new deal is worth up to $36 million, with $25 million guaranteed. The 29-year-old Chancellor will play the final year of a five-year, $29.323 million deal he signed back in 2013 next season. The Seahawks now have $123 million in guaranteed money committed to their secondary, which is $32 million more than the Cardinals, who are No. 2 in the league.

Kam Chancellor was optimistic he would have a new contract before the start of the regular season.

Chancellor is a key cog in Seattle's Legion of Boom defense and that is reflected in the team's payroll.

Chancellor previously said he "definitely" trusted that the team would "do the right thing". "They gave me the first opportunity, the only opportunity, and I would love to retire here". He's missed nine games because of injuries over the last three seasons (not counting the two for his holdout) and has had several surgeries, including procedures earlier this offseason to remove bone spurs from both ankles.

"I can't really put a time-frame on how long I want to play", he said. "Till the wheels fall off".

"As long as the wheels let me", Chancellor said. "It's however long my body holds up, and however long the Lord allows me". "It's never up to me". Two years ago, Chancellor was a training camp holdout because he was unhappy with his contract. "So it's going to change here and there".

Chancellor is a two-time second-team All-Pro selection and a four-time Pro Bowler.
