Seahawks sign Chancellor to extension
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.
