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.
