We all know that the NFL can be a cruel place, but Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor might be finding that out first hand while holding out of training camp.
After all, one of the players Seattle is replacing him with is ... his half brother.
"You know, my brother is still here in spirit," Keenan Lambert, who shares a mother with Chancellor and is four years younger, told The Seattle Times. "I talk to him daily. He critiques the film for me. Gives me little pointers on what I can improve on. Even if I have a great day like today there's always something to improve on that he will find for me to get better at."
Lambert, a 6-foot-1, 215-pound safety out of Norfolk State in Virginia, has been turning heads in camp so far. His highlight reel includes several big plays on the newly acquired Jimmy Graham.
While he's done nothing but sing Chancellor's praises since he's been away, there's no doubt a hungry undrafted free agent is welcoming the increased playing time.
"Kam has a great heart," Lambert said. "Regardless (of the holdout), Kam is going to be the best man he can be, the best teammate he can be, the best brother. Kam watches the film, texts all the players and offers pointers on how to be a better team player."
