Another Seahawk player is leaving Seattle behind. This time Kam Chancellor has announced his retirement from the NFL and the decision is because of neck and head injuries. Chancellor will be known as the hard hitting strong safety from the legion of boom and he was also the vocal leader of the Seahawks’ secondary. When a team loses a field general like Kam Chancellor was it’s such a huge loss in the leadership category. Defenses that communicate more often typically play better and Seattle will truly miss Chancellor’s intangibles. Not only that but this guy was very clutch. Kam Chancellor seemed to always come up big for Pete Carroll’s team during their back to back Super Bowl appearances. He was just such an instrumental piece to Seattle’s run and it’s sad to see all of these big names leaving the Emerald City. Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett, Jimmy Graham, Cliff Avril, Sheldon Richardson, and now Kam Chancellor are all out of the picture. It’s going to be so difficult for Carroll to overcome all of that and it’s very possible this franchise has a top 10 draft pick in 2019. Good coaching can only take you so far and at some point you need players who can go out and make plays. With the defense completely tapped out there will be so much pressure on Russell Wilson to bail the Seahawks out. Those expectations are way too high and eventually everything is going to come crashing down. As for Chancellor he’ll have to find out what the next chapter of his life is going to pertain? With his excellent social skills there’s so many possibilities for the 4x Pro Bowler. From the sounds of it Chancellor is a man of a lot of faith so it wouldn’t be surprising to see him doing something with religion.
