Every offseason, it seems like a major superstar becomes available via trade. Most recently, those stars have ranged from Jimmy Graham to Brandon Marshall. This year, there figures to be a number of stars discussed in trade talks. However, it’s almost a certainty that one man is going to be traded. That man’s name is Kam Chancellor, and he is an all-pro safety for the Seattle Seahawks. Chancellor enrolled at Virginia Tech as a quarterback, before enduring a change to cornerback. He eventually settled in at safety, and the rest is history. In his six seasons in the NFL, Chancellor has tallied almost 500 total tackles, a pair of sacks, 10 interceptions, and nine forced fumbles.

Quickly ascending to superstar status, Chancellor has solidified himself as an elite NFL safety. With that said, he’s been long-linked to trade rumors. The rumors have only become more frequent, since his holdout at the start of this season. While many teams have been linked to Chancellor at one point or another, there’s been one team who’s constantly appeared in rumors, the Philadelphia Eagles. In this article, we will take a look at five potential scenarios that could land Kam Chancellor in “Midnight Green.”  Without further delay, let’s get started…

1.) Jason Peters and a 2016 3rd Round Pick

This deal makes the most sense for both sides, hands down. Seattle figures to lose Russell Okung to Free Agency this year. By losing Okung, the Seahawks are not only taking a major blow to their offensive line stability, but they’re also taking a major blow to their veteran presence. The acquisition of Peters would be beneficial for the Seahawks, as it would restore stability among their offensive lineman, while keeping the veteran presence in the locker room. For the Eagles, this deal almost makes too much sense. Moving Peters helps them shed his horrendous cap hit for the 2016 season, while beefing up their defensive secondary with the acquisition of one of the league’s best safeties. The third-round pick helps offset the salary difference between Peters and Chancellor, further enticing the Seahawks to take the deal.
