Sea­hawks sign Chan­cel­lor to ex­ten­sion

Cape Breton Post - - Sports -

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

A day af­ter say­ing as much, the Seat­tle Sea­hawks’ start­ing strong safety signed a three­year ex­ten­sion that will keep him with the only club he’s ever played for through the 2020 sea­son. The team an­nounced the deal Tues­day morn­ing. Chan­cel­lor’s new deal is worth up to $36 mil­lion with $25 mil­lion guar­an­teed. Two years ago, Chan­cel­lor was a train­ing camp hold­out be­cause he was un­happy with his contract. 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.
