Two of the Seahawks’ best players are not participating in training camp. Both Jamal Adams and Duane Brown are staging hold-ins, being at Seahawks practices but not working out. The team continues to discuss an extension with Adams, and that appears to be holding up matters on the Brown front.
The perception around Seahawks camp points to the team prioritizing an Adams extension before addressing Brown’s situation, according to Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. While both sides expressed optimism an Adams deal could happen this week, the All-Pro safety remains unsigned going into the third week of Seattle’s training camp.
Interestingly, Pete Carroll called the Adams negotiations “amicable,” but refused to comment on Brown’s situation. Seattle’s 35-year-old left tackle is going into the final year of his contract. His desire for another Seahawks extension has been known for months, but a recent report brought that issue back to the forefront. Brown, 35, is set to earn $10MM in base salary this season. While he will not be a candidate to exceed Trent Williams‘ market-topping extension, Brown has stabilized the Seahawks’ left tackle position and would make sense as a short- or medium-length extension candidate.
