While Adams is believed to be seeking a new contract, a personal issue may be keeping him away from the team this week, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports.
The veteran is set to earn $9.86 million in 2021, the final year of his rookie deal.
Prior to the 2020 season, the Seahawks traded two first-round picks, a third-round pick, and safety Bradley McDougald to the New York Jets for Adams and a fourth-rounder.
Adams is aiming to become the NFL’s highest-paid safety while shooting for an extension worth between $16 million and $17 million annually, according to Geoffrey C. Arnold of The Oregonian.
Justin Simmons of the Denver Broncos currently holds that distinction after inking a pact worth $15.25 million per year this offseason.
Adams made his third straight Pro Bowl and was named a second-team All-Pro during his first campaign in Seattle. He set a career high with 9.5 sacks despite missing four games.
