Kam Chancellor’s three-year extension means the Seahawks’ core defense will remain under contract through the 2018 season.

The deal includes $25 million in guaranteed money, a source told ESPN. That ranks seventh — just behind teammate Earl Thomas — among current safety contracts, according to ESPN Stats Information.

Chancellor indicated on Monday that the two sides were close to finalizing a deal. The Seahawks now have $123 million in guaranteed money committed to their secondary, which is $32 million more than the Cardinals, who are No. 2 in the league.

“I love this team,” Chancellor said. “They gave me the first opportunity and the only opportunity, and I would love to retire here.”
