The Seahawks did not disclose terms, but a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson that Chancellor agreed to a three-year extension worth $36 million.

Both Chancellor and coach Pete Carroll reported the recent contract talks been "positive", but no deal had been reached by the start of training camp. This is a good possibility as the veteran safety will be 33 years old at the end of his contract. Last season Chancellor, a fifth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, accounted for 81 combined tackles, two interceptions and eight passes defensed in 12 games.

In May, some thought that the Seahawks were planning to move on from Kam Chancellor after this season.

Most notably, the Z2 Force takes a pretty big cut in battery capacity this time around, now only sporting a 2,730 mAh cell. The Moto 360 Camera allows for 360 imaging and video in 4K as well as wide angle imaging up to 150 degrees.

"I'm not the same rookie I was seven years ago". The signing of Chancellor helps Seattle ensure that the "Legion of Boom" will remain in place for years to come. The deal includes $25 million in guarantees. The team had yet to reach a new agreement with Chancellor, and they had drafted a potential replacement in Delano Hill, a strong safety at MI.

Chancellor indicated on Monday that the two sides were close to finalizing a deal. "They gave me the first opportunity and the only opportunity, and I would love to retire here". Chancellor was coming up on the final year of a five-year, $29.323 million deal he signed back in 2013. The three-year length of the extension makes sense given Chancellor's age and his recent injury history.
