Because the end of one journey sees the beginning of another. And guess what.. it will be one hell of a journey. You will feel emotional and physical pain you never knew existed.

 Seahawks Part Ways With Safety Kam Chancellor & Receiver Doug Baldwin


John Boyle Seahawks.com Reporter

The Seahawks parted ways with a pair of franchise icons who helped bring a Lombardi Trophy, two NFC championships and multiple playoff berths to Seattle, terminating the contracts of receiver Doug Baldwin and safety Kam Chancellor with failed physical designations.

The move was an expected one in the case of Chancellor, who spent all of the 2018 season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list because of a neck injury sustained in 2017. Baldwin, who joined the team as an undrafted rookie in 2011 and went on to become one of the best receivers in franchise history, battled numerous injuries throughout the 2018 season, and had multiple surgeries this offseason.

“The Seahawks have made the difficult decision to terminate/failed physical Doug Baldwin and Kam Chancellor,” Seahawks general manager John Schneider said. “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.”

Chancellor, a fifth-round pick in the 2010 draft, became a leader and tone-setter for some of the best defenses in franchise history, and helped the Seahawks lead the NFL in scoring defense for four straight seasons from 2012-2015, a first in the Super Bowl era. A four-time Pro-Bowler and two-time second-team All-Pro, Chancellor was twice named the team’s Steve Largent Award winner, and was voted a team captain by his teammates three times.

Baldwin, a difference-maker both on and off the field, didn’t just make the roster as an undrafted rookie in 2011, he went on to lead the Seahawks in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns that year. Over the course of eight seasons, Baldwin set the franchise record for touchdown catches in a season with 14 in 2015, and matched the team record for receptions in a season with 94 in 2016. A two-time Pro-Bowler, Baldwin’s 49 career receiving touchdowns are second only to Hall of Famer Steve Largent in franchise history, and his 493 catches and receiving 6,563 yards rank third behind Largent and Brian Blades.

Thank You Doug Baldwin

“A Great Contributor In So Many Ways,” Doug Baldwin Made A Difference On The Field And Off

Doug Baldwin’s Seahawks career came to an end on Thursday when his contract was terminated with a failed physical designation, but his impact on the team and the region will long be remembered by both Seahawks fans and by the number of people whose lives he affected with his tireless work in the community.

“He has been an extraordinary part of this program since we’ve been here,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said last month after reports surfaced that Baldwin could have to retire due to injuries. “He has given us everything he has had, been a great competitor and player and all that. We believe in him so much and trust in him so much that wherever this goes, we’re going to support him forever. He has been a great contributor in so many ways, not just on the team but in the community and everything else. He has been awesome.”

Kam Chancellor wasn’t ready to lead when Seahawks coach Pete Carroll first suggested that the young safety had that ability in him despite his status as a rookie.

“Coach, I haven’t even done anything yet,” was Chancellor’s response, he recalled years later.
