Catching up with Kam

Sportswriter Shaun Scott talks with Seahawks legend Kam Chancellor about his life away from football.

Seattle Seahawks legend Kam Chancellor thoroughly enjoys being one of the most recognizable faces in the Pacific Northwest community.

Chancellor, who played for the Seahawks from 2010 through 2017, will be appearing at the American Express Experience prior to the start of the Seattle Seahawks/Minnesota Vikings football game on Dec. 10. Chancellor will be meeting with fans and Amex Card members where he will be posing for photos and signing autographs. Chancellor will be on site at 165 South Jackson Street from 3-4 p.m. this Monday.

“It means a lot to me and I think it means a lot to the fans as well because most importantly the fans have been so supportive of me all eight years of my career,” Chancellor said. “They have been making tons and tons of noise. They’ve also been coming to so many of my foundations events that I have been having. It is just time for me now to share that experience with them and give back and just have a fun exciting time interacting with them.”

I had the opportunity to ask Chancellor some questions about his life away from the gridiron via a phone interview on Dec. 6.
