Chancellor, who was set to enter the final year of his rookie contract, will have a news conference this afternoon, according to Mike Sando of ESPN.com. A fifth-round draft pick in 2010, he is an integral part of one of the best secondaries in the NFL.
“It's a great day today," Chancellor wrote on his personal Twitter account earlier today before the news broke.
Paired with Earl Thomas, the former first-round draft pick, Seattle has terrific players at safety and their secondary was enhanced earlier this month by the addition of veteran cornerback Antoine Winfield.
