From dating Kenny Easley’s daughter in high school to being compared to the Ring of Honor strong safety for his similar style of play, Kam Chancellor just continues to get better as the game continues to slow down for him.

In 2011, his first season as the Seahawks’ starting strong safety, Kam Chancellor ended up playing in the Pro Bowl after intercepting four passes and making 94 tackles.

In 2012, Chancellor finished third in tackles (91) for a defense that allowed the fewest points in the NFL and ranked a franchise-best No. 4 in average yards allowed.

In 2013, Chancellor, a fifth-round selection in the 2010 NFL Draft, is even better.

All-Pro free safety Earl Thomas mentioned it after Chancellor had made a fourth-quarter interception in Sunday’s 45-17 thumping of the Jacksonville Jaguars at CenturyLink Field. It was Chancellor’s second interception in as many weeks, and he also has 14 tackles to rank third on the team behind middle linebacker Bobby Wagner (24) and Thomas (19).

“Kam has been playing great, and that was a helluva play,” Thomas said. “He already was a tackling machine and now you can tell the game has slowed down for him because he’s playing so fast.”

Before the game, Carlos Torres, a fan of the Seahawks and strong safeties from Yakima, not only listed Chancellor as his favorite player, he veered into uncharted territory by likening Chancellor to Ring of Honor strong safety Kenny Easley because of their similar physical style of play and instincts.

Told of the comments by Thomas and Torres in the locker room at Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Monday morning, Chancellor just smiled.
