  • Kam Chancellor: Finally cut loose by Seahawks

    The Seahawks released Chancellor (neck) with a failed physical designation Thursday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Chancellor hasn't played an NFL snap since suffering a stinger Week 10 of the 2017 season, residing on IR the rest of that campaign and the PUP list last fall. He didn't require surgery for the issue, but he also has been unable to receive medical clearance and again put on the pads. The last of the Legion of Boom era, Chancellor likely concludes his career with an average of 5.6 tackles per game while racking up 12 interceptions, nine forced fumbles and two sacks in 109 contests.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Remains on roster

    Chancellor (neck) likely remains unable to pass a physical, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Chancellor has a massive financial incentive to hold off on retirement, as his three-year, $36 million contract is fully guaranteed for injury. The deal runs through 2020, with Seattle unable to get out of it unless the 30-year-old eventually is able to pass a physical. Chancellor isn't expected to return to football, as the neck injury he suffered in Nov. 2017 leaves him vulnerable to an even more severe head/neck injury.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Placed on reserve PUP list

    Chancellor (neck) was placed on the reserve PUP list Thursday, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic Seattle reports.

    Chancellor sustained a neck injury last season, leading to his placement on the PUP list. The once great safety was a dominant player for the Seahawks, but he announced his intention to retire as a result of his injury a month ago and it's likely only a matter of time before that becomes official.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Appears to be retiring after eight seasons

    Chancellor (neck) announced his retirement from football Sunday after scans on his neck 'showed no healing', per his official Twitter account.

    In a heartfelt note, Chancellor explained that the neck injury he sustained last season has not improved, and to continue to play football would be to risk paralysis. The long-time member of the Legion of Boom will end his career with 109 games played, four Pro Bowl selections and a Super Bowl victory in 2014. Chancellor was one of the most feared safeties in the NFL, and was a huge part of the dominant Seattle defenses from 2012 to 2016. Bradley McDougald filled in for Chancellor last season and should be first in line to take reps at strong safety for the Seahawks. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Chancellor stands to collect $6.2 million this year and $5.2 million next season, with the earnings contingent on his inability to gain medical clearance to play.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Future to be determined this summer

    General manager John Schneider said Monday that Chancellor has a scan scheduled for late June or early July to determine his playing future, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Chancellor's 2017 campaign ended abruptly Week 10, when he sustained an unspecified neck injury and landed on injured reserve. In a press conference after the season, coach Pete Carroll revealed that Chancellor was in danger of not playing again. However, Chancellor threw a wrench into that line of thinking in February, stating he'll suit up again if he gains medical clearance. The crossroads for his career presumably will arrive early in the summer, but the Seahawks likely are inclined to address the situation with a draft pick later this week.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Plans to play in 2018 if cleared

    Chancellor (neck) intends to play in 2018 if he receives medical clearance from doctors to do so, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Though Chancellor's recent social-media activity suggested that he may be thinking about life after football, if the four-time Pro Bowler is able to pass a physical during the offseason, it appears he's willing to accept the risk of returning from a career-threatening neck injury, for which he didn't require surgery, according to Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. Per Henderson, the Seahawks at least intend to keep Chancellor on the roster in 2018 regardless of his availability, as the safety's $6.8 million base salary for the upcoming season officially became guaranteed Friday. Chancellor is under contract through 2019 and would forfeit $12 million in injury guarantees if he were to retire, so there's incentive for him to keep playing.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: Unlikely to retire in 2018

    Chancellor (neck) is unlikely to retire this offseason, Brady Henderson of ESPN reports.

    There hasn't been any positive development as far as Chancellor's career-threatening neck injury is concerned, but the soon-to-be 30-year-old would forfeit $12 million in guaranteed money by retiring this offseason. Meanwhile, Chancellor's cap charge would escalate from $9.6 million to $19.5 million should Seattle release him. While it's possible the two sides could come to some sort of injury settlement, there seems to be a strong possibility the veteran safety remains under contract with the Seahawks in 2018 regardless of whether he's able to play or not.

  • Seahawks' Kam Chancellor: May not play again

    Head coach Pete Carroll told 710 ESPN Seattle on Tuesday that Chancellor (neck) may not play again. "Cliff [Avril] and Kam [Chancellor] are going to have a hard time playing football again," Carroll said. "The jury is not out on that yet."

    Chancellor didn't take another snap after injuring his neck Week 10. The strong safety opted to avoid surgery on the region with the hope rehab will get him back into playing shape. However, Carroll's comments sung an ominous tone with three years remaining on Chancellor's contract. Expect Chancellor and the Seahawks to explore every option at his disposal in the coming months.
