Kam Chancellor and Seahawks agree to three-year extension

The deal is worth $36 million, including $25 million in guaranteed money. 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.He wanted a new contract before the 2015 season and held out through the first two games.Chancellor had said on Monday he was feeling good about the progress of negotiations and hoped to retire as a Seahawk, which came a day after coach Pete Carroll had also said things looked positive. Right from the start of camp, Chancellor expressed his optimism about a new deal.Over the course of his career, Chancellor has 15 interceptions, 389 tackles and three sacks.Chancellor, 29, has been Seattle’s starting strong safety since 2011 and one of the key locker room leaders. “Hopefully it’ll get done any time now”.”As long as the wheels let me”, Chancellor said. Can’t really put a time frame on how long I want to play. “But I feel like it’s been positive on both ends, both sides have been very productive working together and I’m just waiting to see what’s happening”. Despite legitimate arguments from three or four players on the Super Bowl XLVIII team claiming to be the reason the defense shut down Peyton Manning and waltzed into the record books, Schneider was able to secure Chancellor, Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Michael Bennett for the long term. However long my body holds up, however long the Lord allows me to. “They gave me my first opportunity, the only opportunity”.
