Kam Chancellor began his professional career after signing a $2 million four-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks in June 2010. Since he was good strong security for the side, the contract was extended for another four years. This time the contract value of $28 million guaranteed $17 million and granted the American footballer a signing bonus of $5 million.
Kam kept pace with his outstanding performance and 2017 brought him another contract extension – a three-year commitment worth $36 million. After a neck injury he suffered in 2017, it is speculated that the days of strong security in the NFL are numbered. While we wait for him to make an official announcement about his retirement from the service, here’s what we should know about his life and career.
Kam Chancellor’s Bio
It was on April 3, 1988, and in Norfolk, Virginia, that this strong security was born and Kameron Darnel was appointed chancellor. Although nothing is known about the man who fathered this NFL star, one would not look long to find out that his mother Karen Lambert had several jobs to provide for Kam and his siblings. To reward her efforts, the soccer player bought the woman a decent house and a car, while assuring her that she would have earned more since she always worked hard to raise her children and still act as a father figure for them.
Kam’s soccer career began in high school when he was a student at Matthew Fontaine Maury High School, where he excelled in basketball and soccer. His achievements as quarterback and safety earned him a lot of attention and a number of prestigious awards. Kam Chancellor was not only crowned the most valuable player on his team but was also inducted into the first team of the All-Eastern District Quarterback.
When he joined the Hokies of Virginia Tech in 2006, he played 54 games for the team with 41 stars. He quickly became a playmaker and collected up to 2 Forced Fumbles, 4 Fumble Recoveries, 6 Interceptions, and 208 Tackles. Through his efforts, he became ACC champion in 2007 and 2008. He also made it to the second team of the All-ACC in 2009. Came to the NFL to prove his worth after being ranked 133rd in the 5th round of the Hawks in the 2010 NFL Draft.
One of the major highlights of his achievements in the league is his promotion to Super Bowl Champion (XLVIII). Apart from that, this guy has participated in the NFL All-Star Game (Pro Bowl) four times, first in 2011, and then successively from 2013 to 2015.
Wife or Girlfriend; Is He Married?
If you’re really a fan of the Seattle Seahawks Strong Safety, you should know that sometime in July 2017 he married the woman of his dreams. Though not in vain, the association brought together the original members of the Legion of Boom. Yes, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas, and Richard Sherman attended the event, it’s not something a real fan would miss.
Anyway, the NFL star married his long-time girlfriend Tiffany Lucy in July 2017, after they got engaged the previous year, in November to be exact. As far as we can tell, Tiffany has been working hard to build a career as a model and actress. For the latter, you will find her in Grimm in 2011, in The Reason in 2013, and in The Librarians (2014). Tiffany Lucy is also a fitness enthusiast known for her activities at Form By Force, a training company that helps individuals achieve their physical fitness goals. Her husband is a co-owner of the outlet.
At the time of writing, Kam and Tiffany Lucy do not have children, but they have dedicated their time to promoting the well-being of children in the Hampton Roads and Seattle areas. Through his Kam Cares Foundation, the footballer and his wife have provided educational, health, and wellness programs to numerous children. The Foundation also supports other institutions that work to improve the situation of disadvantaged children from low socio-economic backgrounds and single parents.

Almost nothing is known about Creighton, but it is common knowledge that Keenan also played American football professionally. The 1.82-meter tall safety had his college career with the Spartans at Norfolk State University and was signed by the Seattle Seahawks in May 2015 as the undefeated free agent. He also played for the Oakland Raiders but did not reach any significant height in the league. Keenan is not Kam’s full siblings, as they only have one biological parent.
Height, Weight, and Body Measurements
What makes a good footballer goes beyond skills and talent and includes good physical attributes and fitness. As much as a player must have the right skills for the game, it is ideal if he or she is of good height and weight and has satisfactory fitness characteristics that ensure the robustness and endurance so urgently needed for the sport.
Although Kam Chancellor is not the strongest safety with the most perfect physique in the NFL, his frame has been consistently cited as one of the factors that have helped his career. The star of the Seattle Seahawks is 3 inches taller than 6 feet and weighs 225 pounds. His arm length is 33 inches (0.84 m) and his hand size is 9 1/2 in (0.24 m).
