The offseason has been busy for Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor. According to Ian Rapoport, Chancellor underwent bone spur surgery on both ankles.
Not free agency news but… #Seahawks S Kam Chancellor had surgery to remove bone spurs from both ankles, I’m told. Back to walking around now

While bone spur surgery is usually fairly minor, having one of the league’s best defensive players going under the knife certainly gives us something to keep an eye on.
The good news for the Seahawks is that Chancellor is walking around now. That should give him plenty of time to recover and be at 100 percent by the time training camp rolls around.
Chancellor played in 12 games for Seattle in 2016. He intercepted two passes and was in on 85 combined tackles. Seattle was 8-4 with Chancellor in the lineup and 2-1-1 without him.
Chancellor’s surgery is the latest event in what’s been a rough offseason for the Legion of Boom. Richard Sherman is recovering from an MCL injury that he played with for most of 2016, while Earl Thomas is rehabbing from a broken leg that ended his season.
