LOS ANGELES — Seahawks linebacker Kam Chancellor will take the field against the Miami Dolphins in Super Cup XLIX, and he’s getting ready for it with a bang.
Chancellor said he was ready for the first time since the season started.
“Yeah, it’s going to be a great feeling.
You can’t even begin to describe how excited I am to be back on the field for my teammates, the fans and myself,” Chancellor said Tuesday.
“It’s definitely going to make the fans feel special, and I think that’s what we need to do.
I think we can compete with anybody, and hopefully we can do that for this team.
It’s going be fun.
It will be exciting.”
Chancellor played his first two seasons in Seattle after being selected in the second round (No. 68 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.
He has played the last three seasons in Miami, making five starts and one start in the NFC South.
Chancellor has played for the Miami HEAT, who defeated the Seahawks in Super Week 2 to advance to the AFC Championship Game.
The HEAT are coached by former Seahawks defensive coordinator Mike Nolan.
Chancellor is averaging 6.7 yards per rush and 1.6 yards per carry.
The Seahawks also have rookie tight end Jermaine Kearse (13 receptions, 890 yards) and cornerback A.J. Bouye (11 interceptions).
Seattle has won six of its last seven games.
