I can confirm an earlier report by Ian Rapoport of NFL.com 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.
