  • Seattle Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor talks to reporters after an NFL football training camp Monday

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.

The "Legion of Boom" hit payday early in August, with Kam Chancellor getting a three-year extension from the Seattle Seahawks.

With a reported average annual salary of $12 million, Chancellor will become the third highest-paid safety in the National Football League behind Eric Berry and Tyrann Mathieu.

Two years ago, Kam Chancellor chose to hold out in hopes of reaching a new deal with the Seattle Seahawks. Even before the Chancellor deal, the team had the bulk of its salary-cap money committed to the secondary and now Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Chancellor are making $10 million or more a season.

Chancellor previously said he "definitely" trusted that the team would "do the right thing".

Chancellor was the No. 18 ranked safety in the NFL last season, according to Pro Football Focus. "They gave me the first opportunity and the only opportunity, and I would love to retire here". If the Seahawks didn't sign Chancellor, he would have been a top target in the free agent market in 2018.

Widely considered the leader of the Seahawks' defense, Chancellor will now be under contract with the team through 2020. "Till the wheels fall off". "It's however long my body holds up, and however long the Lord allows me".

"As long as the wheels let me, as long as the wheels let me", he told reporters at Seahawks training camp.
