Kam Chancellor has been a mainstay for the “Legion of Boom” defense that has made 5 straight playoff appearances and a Super Bowl title in 2013.
The 29-year-old safety has agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $36 million with the Seahawks, a source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson on Tuesday.
Chancellor was selected in the 5th round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Seahawks and has since gone on to a very successful 7-year career that has included four trips to the Pro Bowl.
In a recent interview with ESPN, Chancellor addressed how much longer he wants to play in the NFL.
“As long as the wheels let me,” Chancellor said. “Until the wheels fall off. I can’t really put a time frame on how long I want to play. However long my body holds up. However long the Lord allows me to. It’s never up to me.
His foundation, Kam Cares, was started by Chancellor to equip children from underserved communities in Hampton Roads, Virginia and Seattle areas with educational, health, and wellness tools and resources to position students for greater academic success.
Kam and his fellow Seahawks open up their preseason slate on August 13 against the Chargers.
