Coach Pete Carroll and contract-year SS Kam Chancellor expressed optimism in Chancellor landing an extension.

"Yeah, I think it's been positive on both ends and hopefully it gets done any time now, but I feel like it's been positive on both ends," Chancellor said. Scheduled to make just over $7 million this season, 29-year-old Chancellor is likely seeking $10 million-plus annually. It sounds like it'll get done.

Contract-year SS Kam Chancellor says he's yet to have extension talks with the Seahawks.

Coach Pete Carroll said the team would like to change that. Now 29, Chancellor has had some injury issues in recent years, but his play hasn't fallen off at all. Third-round S Delano Hill looms as a potential replacement, however.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (ankle) has been limited at OTAs.

The Seattle Times believes Dolphins S Reshad Jones' extension will affect negotiations between the Seahawks and walk-year SS Kam Chancellor.

Jones' deal works out to a five-year, $60-million pact with $35 million guaranteed, making him one of the highest-paid safeties in the league along with Eric Berry. Chancellor plays a more defined and limited role than those two, but the ever-increasing safety market means Chancellor will certainly be looking for a raise on his $7 million annual average. With Earl Thomas already making $10 million a year, Seattle will have some tough decisions to make this summer.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor underwent offseason surgery on both ankles.

Chancellor has had offseason ankle scopes in the past to remove loose bone spurs, so this isn't much of a concern. He should be fine for training camp.

Kam Chancellor (groin) is no longer listed on the Seahawks' Week 10 injury report.

Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (groin) returned to a full practice on Wednesday.

Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor (groin) is "ready to go."

It's unclear if that means he's simply ready to resume practicing or if he's planning to play Sunday against New England. We're guessing it's both. Chancellor's return would obviously be a huge lift for the Seahawks' secondary. Kelcie McCray has struggled while filling in at strong safety and blew his assignment on a touchdown to Justin Hunter in Monday night's win over Buffalo.
