Seahawks S Kam Chancellor said that if he’s cleared to return from a serious neck injury, he plans on playing this season.
“If my body says I can play, I’m playing,” Chancellor told WVEC-TV. “If my body says don’t play, I’m not playing. I’ll listen. I’m a very good listener.”
Chancellor says he doesn’t feel old and believes he’s still in the prime of his career.
“I don’t see myself as old,” Chancellor said. “I feel like I’m still in my prime, so it’s not an age thing at all. It’s just a matter of structural issues in the neck and if they change or not.”
Chancellor is expected to have a scan on his neck injury in late June or early July.
“He’s doing all that he can,” said Kendricks, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. “He’s let me know what the team’s all about …. But he knows in the end I’m going to make my decision based off the things that are presented to me.”
Kendricks added that he is unaware if the Vikings made him an offer and left Minnesota without a contract, per Tomasson.
The linebacker added that he was not surprised to be released from the Eagles since he requested a trade in 2017. Kendricks wants to sign with a team that will give him a “big role.”
“I didn’t ask to be released but I asked for a trade a year prior to this so, yeah, I’m trying to be in a situation where I can play big role and really contribute,’’ said Kendricks, via Tomasson.
Former Rams and Titans HC Jeff Fisher says he had some opportunities to return to the NFL as a coordinator, but this isn’t something he’s interested in right.
“I’ve had opportunities to stay in it, but I don’t see myself coming back and coordinating,” Fisher tells Sirius XM NFL Radio. “As we all know, success in the National Football League is built on a number of different things. And it starts with the quarterback and you’ve got to stay healthy and you’ve got to hit things running and you’ve got to have a good staff, all those things. So getting out for a year or two, I don’t think that should, by any teams, eliminate somebody.”
Fisher added that he may consider pursuing a coordinator job at a later point and after he’s exhausted all possibilities as a head coach.
“If the Lord has that opportunity ahead of me, then I’ll do that once I’ve eliminated all the possibilities to get back on the sidelines,” Fisher said.
