Seahawks Kam Chancellor agrees to three-year contract extension

The 29 year old is entering his eighth season with the Seahawks, and has amassed 729 tackles and 12 interceptions. That last piece may be resolved sooner rather than later.

Kam Chancellor, the hard-hitting safety who provides the boom for the Legion of Boom in Seattle, reached an agreement on a three-year, $36 million extension with the Seahawks on Tuesday, ESPN.com reported.

"I'm not the same rookie I was seven years ago". The deal includes $25 million guaranteed. The guaranteed money ranks seventh for the position, and $2.75 million less than what was guaranteed to teammate Earl Thomas.

"I really don't like to put no negative thoughts in my head", Chancellor said Monday.

His extension will make that a very real possibility, something that may have been hard to imagine two years ago - nearly to the day - when Chancellor began what would become a protracted and bitter holdout that lasted two games into the regular season.

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. Chancellor hasn't started more than 14 games in a season since 2013.

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.

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.
