Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network reports that the Seahawks have signed fifth-round safety Kam Chancellor.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter came through with the details; it’s a four-year pact with a maximum value of $2.83 million.
An over-sized safety built in Taylor Mays’ likeness, Chancellor goes 6-foot-3, 231. He just doesn’t possess Mays’ speed. Chancellor ran a 4.62 forty at February’s Scouting Combine. Mays “officially” came in at 4.43.
In Seattle, Chancellor figures to focus on covering kicks behind starters Earl Thomas and Jordan Babineaux. If Chancellor eventually does earn playing time on defense, he’ll likely serve as an “in the box” safety.
