Josina Anderson of ESPN is reporting that the Seahawks and S Kam Chancellor have agreed to a three-year, $36 million extension that includes $25 million guaranteed.
Contract talks between the parties had been heating up in recent days and indications were that they would be able to get an agreement in place before the start of the season, so this shouldn’t come as a big a surprise.
Chancellor recently that he’s hoping to finish out his career in Seattle.
“As long as the wheels let me,” Chancellor said of how long he plans to play. “Until the wheels fall off. I can’t really put a timeframe on how long I want to play. However long my body holds up. However long the lord allows me to. It’s never up to me.
“I love this team. They gave me the first opportunity, the only opportunity. And I would love to retire here.”
Chancellor, 29, is a former fifth-round pick by the Seahawks in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was in the final year of a five-year, $29.323 million contract that contained $17 million guaranteed and a $5 million signing bonus.
In 2016, Chancellor appeared in 12 games for the Seahawks and recorded 86 total tackles, two interceptions, eight forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 3 safety out of 90 qualifying players.
