Kam Chancellor agrees to multi-year extension

I can confirm an earlier report by Ian Rapoport of that the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms for a multi-year extension with safety Kam Chancellor.

The team is expected to hold a press conference to announce the deal this afternoon at 2 p.m.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed, but according to a report on the league’s web site Chancellor has agreed to a four-year, $28 million contract extension, which includes $17 million guaranteed money.

Drafted in the fifth round of the 2010 draft, Chancellor, 25, is considered one of the leaders on Seattle’s defense.

In his first year as a starter in 2011, the Virginia Tech product earned an invitation to the Pro Bowl, finishing tied for second on the team with four interceptions.
