It’s been nearly a year and a half since strong safety Kam Chancellor last set foot on the football field for the Seattle Seahawks during the Week 10 2017 game against the Arizona Cardinals. What began as a stinger suffered in garbage time eventually led to the end of the career of one of the most physical safeties in the NFL has officially taken its final toll.

The Seahawks have released Kam Chancellor.

Fittingly, Chancellor played his final game for the Hawks on the same field that took down the other members of the Legion of Boom. Cornerback Richard Sherman tore his Achilles in that same Thursday Night Football game, and All Pro free safety Earl Thomas suffered a broken leg there in Week 4 of the 2018 season.

Chancellor finishes his career having made four Pro Bowls and twice having been named a Second-team All-Pro. Chancellor set the tone early in Super Bowl XLVIII, and his hits are sure to be included in NFL highlight reels for decades to come.

The biggest thanks to Chancellor for everything he did for the Seahawks and Seattle, both on and off the field, and wishing him the best of luck going forward.
