Kam Chancellor and Seahawks agree to three-year extension

Josina Anderson

That mission has reportedly been accomplished, with Josina Anderson of ESPN reporting that the two sides have agreed to a 3-year contract extension worth $36 million.

The strong safety, 29, now has three more years to look forward to as a member of Seattle's Legion of Boom, but Chancellor said he plans to play for a very long time.

Chancellor played in 12 games last season for the Seahawks.

"I'm not the same rookie I was seven years ago".

The deal includes $25 million in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN.

Chancellor is a leader for the defense, so the Seahawks made it a priority to extend him past this season.




Comments from both the team and Chancellor over the last two days gave the impression that it was only a matter of time before an agreement was reached on an extension. However, things changed as the Seahawks reported to camp.

Any acrimony appears to have dissipated and the new deal takes away the chance that Chancellor would leave Seattle in free agency after this season.

Kam Chancellor even went as far as to express his desire to remain a Seahawk prior to the extension.

"I love this team", Chancellor said.

He also said he "would love to retire" with the franchise. Chancellor is due to receive a base salary of $6.8 million in the final year of his current contract per Spotrac, with the safety receiving signing ($1,000,000) and roster ($243,744) bonuses as well.

Chancellor, 29, will now be under contract through the remainder of his prime years.
