Seahawks excuse Adams from minicamp for personal reasons
Carroll added that the Seahawks are expecting Adams to return for training camp, according to Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times.
The star safety is reportedly also seeking a new deal. Carroll noted that contract talks have been "ongoing and amicable throughout." Adams is set to earn $9.86 million in 2021, the final year of his rookie deal.
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.
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 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.
