According to the Seattle Times, the Seattle Seahawks could make former safety Kam Chancellor a post-June 1 cut. Chancellor basically announced he was stepping away from the game this past summer after suffering a neck injury. 

Chancellor’s contract is $5.2 million, which is fully guaranteed for the 2019 season. Yet, he is not able to pass a physical to play. Unfortunately, for the Seahawks, they are stuck with his contract for now.

When the Seahawks release his contract, likely after June-1, it will save the team $10.5 million. It will also decrease his dead cap money to $2.5 million. 

Since Chancellor cannot play anymore, the Seahawks do not have to make this move right away. They can work on their needs this off-season, before even discussing Chancellor’s roster move.

Chancellor was one of two players, who suffered neck injuries for the Seahawks during the 2017 season. Like Chancellor, Cliff Avril did not play in the 2018 season and may never play again.

The 30-year-old Norfolk, Virginia native played eight seasons with the Seahawks. Chancellor last played during the 2017 season when he made nine starts. He had 48 tackles, including two tackles for a loss, and a safety. 

He also had one forced fumble and two pass deflections. 

In his career, Chancellor appeared in 109 games with 93 starts. He also had 434 tackles, including 17 tackles for a loss, three quarterback hits, and one safety. He also had 12 interceptions, nine forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and 44 pass deflections.
