Seattle Seahawks Part Ways With Kam Chancellor And Doug Baldwin

It’s the end of an era in Seattle. With the Seahawks’ recent roster moves, two members of the 2014 Super Bowl team will no longer be with the team moving forward.

The Seahawks announced today that they would be releasing Doug Baldwin and Kam Chancellor. The contracts were terminated due to failed physical designations.

Looking at Chancellor, his release doesn’t come as a surprise. He spent the entire 2018 season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list because of a 2017 neck injury. Baldwin had multiple surgeries in the offseason and also battled numerous injuries in 2018.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider made a statement regarding the matter: “The Seahawks have made the difficult decision to terminate/failed physical Doug Baldwin and Kam Chancellor,” said Schneider. “These are two of the most iconic players in franchise history and both were instrumental in establishing our championship culture, great examples of competitiveness and leadership on the field and in the community. These legendary players will always be a part of our Seahawks family.”

In 2011, Baldwin signed with the team as an undrafted rookie. He played college football for Stanford. In his rookie season, Baldwin went on to lead the team in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He would go on to set the franchise record for touchdown catches in a season and also matched the team record for receptions in a season.

Baldwin tallied 49 career receiving touchdowns, which is second in franchise history. He is a two-time Pro-Bowler.

Chancellor was a fifth-round draft pick and was a four-time Pro-Bowler. He was voted as team captain three times by his teammates.

Baldwin had been reportedly considering retirement after dealing with a chronic knee injury. The roster move will create $9.15 million in cap space.

The duo helped the Seahawks win a Super Bowl and reach another. They also helped the franchise capture multiple division titles.

With today’s moves, it means that the Seahawks have now just three players lest on the roster that won the Super Bowl – Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and K.J. Wright.

It is unknown if Chancellor will take the route to retirement, as it appears that Baldwin will go down that path.
