When Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that safety Jamal Adams is not going to participate in Seahawks minicamp on Tuesday, the thought was that he would miss the session as part of a push for a new contract.

Adams is headed into the final year of his current contract and will need to have his deal addressed at some point, but it appears that his absence from this week’s work is not a source of friction with the team. According to multiple reports, Adams is not going to minicamp has to do with personal rather than contractual reasons.

Those reports also say that Adams has been excused by the Seahawks as a result. That means he will not be fined for failing to take part in the mandatory minicamp.

Adams is set to play out this season on his fifth-year option, which carries a salary of $9.86 million.

  1. Why does he even play safety? His performance on the field is more indicative of a LB

  2. Adams wants Aaron Donald-type money, like Jimmy Graham wanted the Saints to pay him star wide receiver-type money. Seahawks didn’t overpay for Earl Thomas or Richard Sherman or Michael Bennett. I don’t know how this deal gets done. And i don’t know if Adams fits the Seahawks defensive scheme in the very, very fast NFC West. They might have to give up the Ferrari and get solid cornerbacks

  3. Excused absences should be reported before the player is noticed being absent…..gives more credibility to idea it was a legitimate reason.

    Getting the contract extension worked out before training camp would be a great achievement. Not addressing it and letting him Play out the 5th year, seemingly, not a very good idea.

  4. Adam’s loves playing for Seattle. Loves the coaching staff, teammates and the 12’s. He’s also a great leader on and off the field. I highly doubt he will even consider holding out. He knows the deal is a work in progress and it will happen without all the drama.

  5. how long before the ‘disrespected’ tweets start coming out from Jamal because the Seahawks haven’t given him a stupid deal yet?

  6. Gotta love off-season news that takes much-ado-about nothing and turns it into raging rumor mill. Russell is a Seahawk and so is Adams. Adams is leaving Seattle the same way Wilson is going to Bears.
