Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams to sit out mandatory minicamp, sources say

Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams officially will not participate in the team's mandatory minicamp this week, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The 25-year-old, who is scheduled to play on the fifth-year option in his rookie contract worth $9.86 million this season, is seeking a new contract.

The Seahawks were bracing for Adams' potential absence and the team was aware of a potential family/personal issue that could be a factor, sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Adams was not in the building Monday as Seattle players got their physicals.

The Seahawks acquired Adams from the New York Jets before last season, sending a package that included two first-round draft picks to New York, which had selected the safety No.
