Chancellor, Seahawks agree to $36M contract extension

Seattle Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor talks to reporters after an NFL football training camp Monday

Chancellor caused havoc on opposing offenses in his career with the Hokies, posting 208 career tackles and 4.5 TFL before being drafted by the Seahawks in the fifth round in 2010. The guaranteed money ranks seventh for the position, and $2.75 million less than what was guaranteed to teammate Earl Thomas. The deal reportedly includes $25 million in guaranteed money.

Chancellor previously said he "definitely" trusted that the team would "do the right thing". Chancellor's first contract extension, signed in 2013, is set to expire after the 2017 season.

Kam Chancellor and the Seahawks now agree on something.

Over the weekend, both Chancellor and Coach Pete Carroll had indicated that an extension was imminent and Chancellor was encouraged about the progress toward a deal that would keep him in Seattle for a long time. 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. "Till the wheels fall off". I can't really put a time frame on how long I want to play.

Card said the snake , which the woman said was around five feet in length, was biting the woman's nose and just wouldn't let go. A firefighter had to cut the snake's head with a pocket knife in order to release the woman from its grasp.

"As long as the wheels let me", Chancellor said. However long my body holds up. "It's never up to me".

Set to begin his eighth season in the National Football League, with all being played for the Seahawks, Chancellor has earned four Pro Bowl selections during his career with the most recent coming in 2015. "They gave me my first opportunity, the only opportunity".

He also said he "would love to retire" with the franchise.
