“Make me proud bro. It’s your time!! #KamBam,” tweeted free agent Lawyer Milloy on Thursday.
Milloy, who has spent the last two seasons with the Seahawks, has yet to be re-signed to the team and his return is now questionable.
Second-year safety Kam Chancellor is the favorite to replace Lawyer Milloy.
Kam Chancellor, AKA “KamBam,” the strong safety entering his second season with the team, may very likely be Milloy’s replacement.
Chancellor was selected by the Seahawks with the second pick of the 5th round in the 2010 NFL Draft, only the third player in club history to hail from Virginia Tech.
Following practice on Friday morning, Chancellor described how he’s prepared for his potential new role.
“I’m a lot more focused this year,” said Chancellor.
“Everything has slowed down a little bit for me for me because I learned a lot, seen a lot and I’m just ready to take it one day at a time.” Asked specifically what it was that he felt he has learned, Chancellor replied: “Being a leader, taking control, being a student of the game, getting in and studying extra film and just learning my assignments.”
“It’s been depressing man,” he continued. “Not being able to tackle somebody or have contact for a long time. We are back to it, so there’s not much more to say about it now.”
Having last spoken personally to Milloy on Wednesday, Chancellor said the veteran had told him that it is his time to take charge.
“He taught me the ropes,” said Chancellor, “and now it’s my time.”
