The Kam Chancellor contract one

Three aspects of the new deal warrant your poll input

NFL: Seattle Seahawks-Training Camp
hey kam sign my marshawn jersey plz
Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

2017 was a bad year to skip the first couple days of camp, if you’re a Seattle Seahawks fan. There was the Malik McDowell kerfuffle (unresolved) and the Kam Chancellor contract sitch (resolved). And other things. But those two are the big plot lines.

Chancellor’s deal is large. It pays him $12 million annually after this season, an annual average higher than fellow safety Earl Thomas (4/40). Higher than Bobby Wagner (4/43) and Doug Baldwin (4/46) Higher than... well, higher than every Seahawk except Russell Wilson and Richard Sherman.

If your training camp bingo card had “New Kam contract extension,” your odds of winning didn’t look so good last weekend. Well, now...

(The free center square is REPORT: LOCKER ROOM IN DISARRAY. That’s always the free center square.)

Three polls on the Kamtastic news.


Kam Chancellor is signed through 2020 at $12 million annually after this coming season. How does that make you feel?

Finally, the financial implications will be felt. By someone.
