BREAKING: Kam Chancellor, Cliff Avril Unlikely To Play Football Again

Seattle Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor and defensive end Cliff Avril both had their seasons cut short due to neck injuries, and head coach Pete Carroll said that both will have "a hard time playing football again," according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

Avril was placed on injured reserve in October and finished the season with two tackles and a sack in four games. Chancellor had 49 tackles with a forced fumble in nine games.

This offseason is shaping up to be a transitional one for the Seahawks as several of their marquee players don't figure to be back.

The team is expected to part with cornerback Richard Sherman, who is recovering from a ruptured Achilles he suffered in Seattle's win over the Cardinals on Nov. 9, while defensive lineman Michael Bennett also doesn't expect to be back and safety Earl Thomas is already plotting a move to the Dallas Cowboys.

Seattle went 9-7 this season but missed out on the playoffs for the first time in six seasons, and with an aging roster, this may be the start of a rebuild for them.
