Kam Chancellor is walking away from football.
The four-time Pro Bowler made the announcement Sunday in a lengthy statement posted on Twitter:
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network provided additional details:
Chancellor, 30, spent his entire eight-year career with the Seattle Seahawks. He missed seven games in 2017 because of injury.
"I always prayed to God and told myself that I would play this game of football until the wheels fall off," Chancellor wrote. "Well the wheels didn't fall off, but God has given me a sign that I can't just ignore."
Chancellor said his injuries were not healing as he expected, which led to his walking away.
"I've played through all types of bruises and injuries at a high level. But this one, I just can't ignore," the tweet read.
Chancellor finishes his career with two second-team All-Pro selections. He was one of the last vestiges of the Legion of Boom, the Seahawks' secondary crew that led them to back-to-back Super Bowls, including a title in 2013. Richard Sherman's release earlier this offseason helped signal an end of an era.
Earl Thomas is the last remaining member of the so-called Boom.
