  • The Kam extenstion makes sense, but do we usually hold a press conference to announce an extension? That seems a bit out of the ordinary.

    I think it would be appropriate...from a 5th round pick to a pro bowler in a few short years and now universally feared as the game's hardest hitting safety. That's the kind of success story a team loves to draw attention to. Other players and future draft picks will take notice too. Work hard and play well and your draft status will not hold you back in Seattle.

    I don't have a problem with it, if that's what it is, just don't recall it being something John and Pete have done much of in the past. I know we announced both the Lynch and Big Red extensions last offseason and were much anticipated here, but I don't recall there being public press conferences for them. Of course I don't follow the off season pressers as dutifully as I do the regular season ones, so I may have just missed them.

  • You all remember how everyone got into a tisy when RW promoted a huge announcement a couple weeks ago, and were "mildly" disappointed to hear it was just his football camp?

    Since deals are generally leaked well before an official announcement is made, I have my doubts but sincerely hope it's about signing a player long-term.

    I'll be monitoring this situation very closely.

    On Kam Chancellor… Correction: It's a four-year extension. So, he's under contract with the #Seahawks for the next 5 years. Has 1 left

    If that's what he is getting.....that's astonishing for a SS that is arguably the 4th best player in our secondary. I just got nervous about what Earl and Sherm will command because of this. Hopefully we have some backloading going on

    I guess that might not change what they would ask for, which would still be upwards of 10 mil/year. Just seems like a lot at first blush for a SS

  • 7M/yr. Not what I was expecting either but it isn't my money or my cap. I was thinking he would get around 5M, maybe 6M tops. Good for him.

    EDIT: Okay things seem to be fluid on the length, so I am going to table my thoughts on the price for now. Maybe it is 25M for the 4 yr extension? Clayton may have hit the wrong key?

  • Depends on how it's structured. If they can give him a bunch of guaranteed money now and get it off the books that would be great.

    our owner has billions of dollars so money really isn't an issue if they can work it so it fits with the cap.

    Also a lot of people seem to think Kam had a so-so year or that he's become 1-dimensional but lets not forget he's working in support of some very young linebackers.

  • Let's not extrapolate too much from the early numbers. Contract details often don't actually reflect the seeming average that is reported.

    Also, don't forget that the cap is due to increase after the 2014 season, so contracts will increase then as well, so this could be a bargain looking back.

  • Guys are coming free. Red, Rice, Miller. The cap is probably not a problem.

    Dan Quinn needs to coach up Scruggs and Howard as replacements for Mebane and Red Bryant. I'm sure he'll do well with that.

    Clemons is probably gone soon, too.

  • Numbers are still murky. Clayton says five years, but unclear if he is including his remaining rookie year. Kam's agent confirmed 4-year extension through 2017.

    Hold off on freaking out about the cap, plz thx.

    Thats alot of $$$$$.

    Still, probably a good move for you guys. Locks him up at todays prices instead of the market when he would have been a FA.

    Makes me wonder tho what Earl Thomas is going to command.

  • Salary and bonus structure is key. Until we have that, there's no way to tell how the deal impacts our cap room.

    Plus, it seems like every time a new contract is announced it seems to be partly smoke and mirrors. Winfield's was announced at 1 year, $3 million and then we found out it was essentially $2 million with the rest in "not likely to be earned" bonuses. Something similar might be in effect here.

    It's a lot less than Goldson got.

    Earl is going to get a big deal. The best safety in the NFL often does.

    Kam Chancellor's 4-year extension: I'm told it's $28M with $17M guaranteed. Big.

    Guessing they'll work it out so he gets a nice bonus now and cap hits are small relative to the overall contract.

    Precisely. This really isn't all that bad when you think about it. It'll probably shake out to more like what Rob's saying here when you factor the guarantees and the base for each year. Good move by the FO tying up one of our key guys long term. I still think Kam is improving, and when we lock up Thomas for 4-5 more years, it'll mean good things for our D.

  • If it truly is a 4 year, $28 million extension making him locked up for 5 years, then you can add his current $1.323 million to make it a 5 year 29.323 million deal. I would guess that they gave him a nice little bonus for signing (between 4 and 5 million with a few more bonuses scheduled in his contract. Honestly I think it's a fair deal (market wise) for both Kam and the Seahawks.

  • I am sure it is a fair deal. FO knows that others are coming up and we don't have much room against the cap right now. Didn't need to resign him but better now than hitting FA etc

    I still believe part of the game right now is behind the scenes calculations about the cap change in 2014 after the new TV deal takes place. If you can look guys up now for five years and hit some those years knowing there is a significant increase at that time then good way of dealing with the situation.
