Seahawks free safety Earl Thomas is still absent from OTAs, which are voluntary. Asked if he anticipates Thomas being at mandatory minicamp next month, coach Pete Carroll answered in the affirmative but didn't sound as though he's certain of it. "I would think so, yeah. Everybody's got to come to minicamp," he said. Cornerback Byron Maxwell and defensive end Frank Clark were also absent. Right guard D.J. Fluker (knee), kicker Sebastian Janikowski (hip) and defensive end Dion Jordan were among those not practicing. Shaquill Griffin, who started at right cornerback last year, is getting a look on the left side, Richard Sherman's old spot. That may be related to Maxwell's absence.

The Seahawks later today will hold their third organized team activity, the first that will be open to the media. The start of OTAs means the start of Phase 3 of the offseason program. Live contact is still not permitted, but for the first time teams can hold offense-vs.-defense drills such as seven-on-seven or 11-on-11. In an interview Monday with 710 ESPN Seattle, linebacker Bobby Wagner explained that the pre-Phase 3 rules meant minimal interaction between the offense and defense at a time when Seattle's roster has lots of new faces: "We're so separated during these periods that you don't get to really interact or see the other side of the ball, so it's like this is the first day we actually get to see the other side of the ball. We [weren't] allowed on the field when they're doing their drills, so it's just like we're kind of separated. So when they go on the field, we're in the rooms. And when they're in the rooms, [we're] on the field. So it's literally when you see them, it's just in passing, like 'Hey, what's up, Russ? Alright, have a good day.'"

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.
