Seahawks fans have been nervous that their championship window is going to close. Those nerves definitely didn't improve today.
Russell Wilson is still in town, but the defense is certainly up in the air. Some key members could be headed elsewhere, while some, like Kam Chancellor, could be headed to retirement.
The superstar safety's possible retirement has been up in the air, but after his latest Instagram post, we could have some clarity.
Chancellor took to Instagram to share a picture of him walking with the Seahawks logo planted behind him.
If you were looking for what this might mean, Chancellor didn't help with his creative caption of ".......". That's definitely not good and fans are leaving loads of comments on his photo.
They're also taking to Twitter to voice their concern.

It may be a bit of a leap as the only indication that he's walking away is his left foot's placement off the ground, but many believe this shows that the former Pro Bowler is ready to leave football behind him.
Interesting picture here. The hope is he isn't "walking away" from the Seahawks as the pic suggests. https://t.co/Ceyt6vmbBi— Ian Furness (@IanFurnessSea) January 26, 2018
That makes it look like you are walking away....— Chris Cooper (@ccooperninja) January 26, 2018
As Seahawks insider Bob Condotta notes, though, Chancellor retiring will cost him a pretty penny.
This Kam Chancellor post on Instagram does certainly leave lots of room for interpretation. He has about $12 million reasons or so not to just walk away, though: https://t.co/U9L4yaq2rR— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) January 26, 2018
What exactly is Kam trying to tell us? At the end of the day, his health is most important here. Seahawks fans should respect whatever decision he makes.
