When Max Unger signed his big contract extension, I penned this article looking at which player might be the next one to get a contract extension from the Seahawks. I suggested it was likely to be Alan Branch, since he was a ket contributor and his contract expires after this year.
Almost immediately after publishing that, I hear from a bunch of people that Kam Chancellor should have been on my list of possibilities, even though he’s got 2 years left on his rookie deal. Then today, there was this report from Pro Football Weekly, which says that they also heard that the Seahawks and Chancellor could soon be working on a deal.
The idea makes sense. As a 5th round pick, Chancellor is not getting paid up to his level of production. Chancellor was a pro-bowler last year and is a vocal leader on the defense.
