Seahawks’ Kam Chancellor Won’t Play Another NFL Game

It appears as though Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor will not play another NFL game in his career.

Although he hasn’t officially retired, Kam Chancellor (30) is not confident that he will recover sufficiently from his injury

Kam Chancellor played a career-low 9 games last season. He suffered a neck injury making a tackle towards the end of last season, and missed the last 7 games.

Seattle Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll cast doubt over his future back in January. He said that Chancellor would “have a hard time playing football again”.

Chancellor has still not received clearance to return to the field, and he discussed his situation on Twitter.

“I’ve played through all types of bruises and injuries at a high level. But this one, I just can’t ignore,” he tweeted.

“When the doctors told me what was going on in November, I could feel my heart drop to my stomach. To walk away from the game by choice is one thing, to walk away from the game because of the risk of paralysis is another.”

Chancellor was a fifth-round pick back in 2010. He developed into one of the NFL’s finest safeties and was part of a legendary Seahawks defence.

Teaming up with defensive backs Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, the Seahawks “Legion of Boom” secondary made franchise history. The Seahawks won it’s first ever Super Bowl in 2014 thanks to that defense.

Seattle never finished outside the top 10 in total defense or points allowed from 2011 to 2016. For his performances, Chancellor earned four Pro Bowl appearances and two second-team All-Pro honours.

Only linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright remain from the team’s 2014 championship defense.

As Chancellor hasn’t officially retired, his $6.2 million and $5.2 million base salaries for 2018 and ’19 remain guaranteed.
