Seattle Seahawks strong safety Kam Chancellor said scans on his injured neck have shown no improvement and declared it was ”time for the next chapter.”

Chancellor had been awaiting further clarity on his neck Ramon Humber Jersey , which he injured in a game against the Arizona Cardinals in November. In a posting on his Twitter account Sunday night, Chancellor said his latest scans ”showed no healing.”

”I’ve played through all types of bruises and injuries at a high level. But this one, I just can’t ignore,” he wrote.

Chancellor never used the word ”retirement” in his statement, which may have been deliberate. Chancellor signed an extension through the 2020 season last August which contained guaranteed money in case of injury. An official retirement could open up the possibility of forfeiting some of that money. Chancellor’s extension was signed before the start of last season and included a total of $25 million in guaranteed money.

Chancellor was named to four Pro Bowl teams (2011, 2013-15) and was twice a second-team All-Pro selection (2013, 2014). He appeared in 109 career games for Seattle with 93 starts after being selected in the fifth-round of the 2010 NFL draft.

Seattle had foreshadowed the severity of Chancellor’s situation without providing specific details regarding his injury. In his post, Chancellor said he was told paralysis was a possibility.

”When the doctors told me what was going on in (November), I could feel my heart drop to my stomach. The stiffness in my neck and the images I saw had me at one of my lowest points as a man Byron Maxwell Color Rush Jersey , because football is all I knew outside of serving the Lord,” Chancellor wrote. ”To walk away from the game by choice is one thing, to walk away from the game because of the risk of paralysis is another.”

Chancellor was part of Seattle’s first draft under the leadership of coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider. After a year as a backup, Chancellor became a starter in 2011 and quickly emerged as one of the hardest-hitting, most intimidating safeties in the NFL. Chancellor was also the emotional leader of a locker room and defense full of big personalities.

Chancellor’s announcement – while expected by most – is the latest in an offseason filled with changes for Seattle that has seen Richard Sherman, Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril depart. Safety Earl Thomas has also been absent from Seattle’s entire offseason program as he seeks a new contract with his current deal up after the 2018 season.

Seattle did address replacing Chancellor in the offseason by signing Bradley McDougald to a new deal after he filled in following Chancellor’s injury last season.

When the Cardinals signed Justin Pugh to a five-year, $45 million deal this offseason, some people noted that Pugh has missed 13 games over the last two seasons and wondered if his body will hold up in Arizona.

As you’d imagine, Pugh isn’t happy with any label that suggests he’s a bad risk because he’s injury prone. During an appearance on Arizona Sports 98.7 Youth Josh Jackson Jersey , Pugh said people are “not doing their diligence” if they label him that way and explained what led to the back injury that kept him out of the lineup for the Giants’ final eight games last year.

“We were struggling up front and they moved me to a position I hadn鈥檛 played in two years,鈥?Pugh said. 鈥淚鈥檓 out there playing right tackle and then they were like, 鈥榳e need you to play left guard鈥?and then next week it鈥檚 back to right tackle.聽That鈥檚 not good for your body. You can鈥檛 get used to it that fast and there was some anxiety because I hadn鈥檛 played the position in two years, going to right tackle. … I just put one on the back for the team, no pun intended, and it ended up not helping me too much. It would have been a totally different story this past year if I wasn鈥檛 in that situation.”

We can’t know how things would have gone for Pugh if he’d remained at one position for all of last season, but the hope in Arizona is that he’ll be staying put at right guard all year. If that leads to better health, it would be welcome news for running back David Johnson and perhaps quarterback Sam Bradford‘s own bid to tamp down the injury prone label as well.
