Safety first with the Seahawks

Safety first with the Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks aren't done making big moves this offseason. On Monday, they took care of one of their homegrown success stories.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that safety Kam Chancellor signed a four-year contract extension through 2017. A source told Rapoport the contract is worth $28 million, with $17 million guaranteed.

During Pete Carroll's first draft in Seattle, he and GM John Schneider famously passed on Carroll's USC product Taylor Mays to draft Earl Thomas and Chancellor for the back end. Thomas is the signature player, but Chancellor's toughness and versatility should not be overlooked. The 2012 Pro Bowl selection is a very strong tackler that can line up all over the place. He's a solid player in coverage as well, for a player that often plays close to the line of scrimmage.
