Reports: Seahawks’ Jamal Adams will not participate in minicamp

Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams will not participate in the team’s mandatory minicamp this week, multiple media outlets reported on Tuesday.

Adams, 25, reportedly is seeking a contract extension as he enters the final year of his rookie contract and is dealing with a personal matter.



ESPN reported the Seahawks were “aware of the personal/family matter.”

The Seahawks acquired Adams in a trade on July 25, 2020 that sent safety Bradley McDougald, a 2021 first-round, a 2021 third-round pick and a 2022 first-round selection to the New York Jets. The Seahawks also received a 2022 fourth-round pick in the trade.

Adams battled injuries in 2020 en route to securing his third straight Pro Bowl selection. He recorded 83 tackles, a career-high 9.5 sacks and one fumble recovery in 12 games with the Seahawks.

A first-team All-Pro in 2019, Adams has collected 356 tackles, 21.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles and two interceptions in 58 career games with the Jets and Seahawks.
