Source: Thomas skips start of Seahawks' OTAs

Earl Thomas' absence from Seahawks' OTAs, which a source confirmed to ESPN, doesn't come as a surprise given his stated desire for a new contract and previous comments from coach Pete Carroll, who said he wasn't sure when the free safety would show up.

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner concluded an interview on 710 ESPN Seattle this morning with a message of appreciation to teammate Earl Thomas, who has been absent from the team's offseason program as he seeks a new contract. Said Wagner: "Before we get off, I would like to take this time to shout out to Earl Thomas. I think he's an amazing player, I think he's an amazing person, he's a hall of famer, and just let him know that we're over here wishing for the best in that situation and we're thinking about him, and I just want him to know that from this end."

The Seahawks have announced a move in their personnel department, promoting Nolan Teasley to director of pro personnel. He was previously the team's assistant director of pro personnel under Dan Morgan, who left recently for a job with the Bills.

The Seahawks are signing linebacker Dadi Nicolas, a source confirms to ESPN.com. A sixth-round pick by the Chiefs in 2016, Nicolas (6-3, 235) appeared in 11 games as a rookie and missed all of last season because of a ruptured patellar tendon. A recent trade that would have sent him to the Browns was called off and the Chiefs waived Nicolas. The Seahawks drafted Shaquem Griffin in the fifth round, but before adding Nicolas, they had eight linebackers on their roster and three are undrafted rookies. The NFL Network first reported the signing.

The Seahawks are signing former Ravens wide receiver/kick returner Keenan Reynolds, league sources confirm. Reynolds (listed at 5-10, 191) played quarterback at Navy before Baltimore drafted him in the sixth round in 2016. He hasn't appeared in a regular-season game. There's no word on a corresponding move to make room for Reynolds on Seattle's 90-man roster. The NFL Network first reported the move. Also on Wednesday, the Seahawks announced they've signed running back Rashaad Penny, their first-round pick. Seattle has now signed six of its nine draft picks.

Of the 15 players the Seahawks initially singed as undrafted free agents, linebacker Jake Pugh (Florida State) received the largest signing bonus at $15,000, according to a source. Fullback Khalid Hill (Michigan) and defensive tackle Eddy Wilson (Purdue) each got $12,000. Another defensive tackle, Poona Ford (Texas), got $8,000. None of the amounts are considered to be particularly large as far UDFA signing bonuses go. For context, Seattle gave offensive lineman Jordan Roos $20,000 to sign last year.

The Seahawks' one-year deal with cornerback Byron Maxwell has a base value of $2 million, according to a source. The breakdown: $950,000 base salary; $500,000 signing bonus; $100,000 roster bonus (if on the 53-man roster in Week 1); $450,000 in per-game roster bonuses. The signing bonus accounts for Maxwell's only guaranteed money. For now, his cap number will be $1,803,125 because only a portion of the $450,000 in per-game bonuses is currently factored in.

Free-agent wide receiver Brandon Marshall is visiting the Seahawks, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan and Adam Schefter. The 34-year-old Marshall was released by the Giants recently with a failed physical designation after an ankle injury limited him to only five games during his lone season with the team. Russell Wilson lost two of his top targets when Jimmy Graham and Paul Richardson left in free agency, and the Seahawks showed interest in a few big-bodied receivers this offseason: Terrelle Pryor (6-4), Jordy Nelson (6-3) and Jaron Brown (6-2), whom they signed to a two-year deal. That search continues with Marshall (6-5), a six-time Pro Bowl selection with eight 1,000-yard seasons over his 12 years in the NFL.

The Seahawks have signed five players who took part in last weekend's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis: wide receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow, free safety Tevon Mutcherson, center Marcus Henry, tackle Nick Callender and guard Avery Young. To make room on its 90-man offseason roster, Seattle released receivers Ka'Raun White and Taj Williams, linebackers Jason Hall and linebacker Paul Dawson and center Brad Lundblade. All but Dawson were recently signed as UDFAs.

Carroll confirms Thomas skipping workouts

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll confirmed Sunday that Earl Thomas hasn't been present at the team's offseason workouts and he isn't sure when the safety will show up.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll said linebacker Shaquem Griffin looked "very comfortable, very natural" during the Seahawks' three-day rookie minicamp. He added that the weak-side spot still seems to suit him best.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Pete Carroll was asked today if he expects Earl Thomas to sit out the Seahawks' offseason workouts until mandatory minicamp, which is June 12-14. His response acknowledged that Thomas has been absent from the voluntary portion of the program. Said Carroll: "We'll find out. We've got to communicate. Phase 2 doesn't look like it's suiting him right now, so we'll see, we'll see what's happening. Phase 3 is around the corner for us, so we'll see. We've got one more week of Phase 2. Earl had a fantastic offseason and I know he knows how to get in shape. Veterans sometimes look at those rules and they see 'voluntary' and they see it differently than the other guys, so we'll see."

Fifth-round pick Tre Flowers said not many teams before the draft talked to him about moving to cornerback in the NFL. He's making that switch after mostly playing safety at Oklahoma State. Said the 6-3, 203-pound Flowers, "I feel like I can get my hands on a lot of people" as a press corner.

Brady Henderson ESPN 

Will Dissly, the Seahawks' fourth-round pick, kept the No. 98 at Washington even after switching from defensive line to tight end. He now has a number fitting his position — 88, formerly worn by Jimmy Graham. "It was a good college number, but I'm excited to see what I can do in 88," he said.
