Five Most Valuable Seahawks for 2017 (besides Russell Wilson)
By Lee Vowell
4. Kam Chancellor
Chancellor has missed a number of games over the last several seasons. The Seahawks have survived, but that is really all they have done. Let’s be honest here: Seattle is not the same team as far as imposing their physicality on other teams without Chancellor.
Hall of Famer and former Seahawk Kenny Easley was the first Enforcer. Chancellor took his moniker in testament to Easley and has made it his own.
Kam Chancellor is the player who wide receivers fear. Like, literally. After Super Bowl XLVIII one Seattle player commented that the thing that surprised him most about the Denver Broncos was that they stopped running as many crossing routes during the game. This may be why:
Chancellor is a freak. He hits hard. Chancellor runs fast. He is missed by the Seahawks when he does not play. Period.
