The Seahawks’ safeties are essential to the success of the Legion of Boom. Seattle made sure Kam Chancellor will be a part of it going forward with a contract extension, the team announced Tuesday. It’s a 3-year, $36 million deal, according to ESPN’s Josina Anderson, and it includes $25 million in guarantees.
The Seahawks have nearly $48 million, and 29 percent of the total salary cap, invested in the secondary. The money they have dedicated to defensive backs is the most in the league.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy had no idea Bennett spent the night until reporters asked him about it Wednesday.
“I was here late last night so he must’ve come after I left,” McCarthy said, via Aaron Nagler of PackersNews.com. “I don’t usually check lockers for people sleeping.”
Bennett said sleeping on the floor doesn’t bother him too much, but he did say he was worried about one thing: Ghosts.
“I hope there aren’t any ghosts hiding with the Packers though ‘cause if there are some ghosts that are going to come out in this locker room I need to get out of here,” Bennett said in the video. “I’m the only black person in this scary movie and you know the black guy has to die, so I have to recruit some other black guys.”
Bennett made it through the night ghost-free and was ready to go for practice on Wednesday. Here’s to hoping the dorms at St. Norbert College don’t have any ghosts either.
