Took a day after from this...
...to be here...
...for the Seahawks' only day on the field of their only mandatory minicamp of this offseason. After today, the next time the team will be on the field is for the start of training camp, scheduled to be July 31.
Defensive end Michael Bennett and outside linebacker Bruce Irvin are here. Each skipped voluntary workouts this spring because they've been mad about money. But if they blew this off, they'd each be subject to possible team fines of $70,000 or more.
Marshawn Lynch may be inside team headquarters today, too, though he may or may not be on the field for the no-pads, no-contact and really no-big-deal practice that begins at 11 a.m.
Each NFL team gets three days for a mandatory minicamp. The league took the first two days of practice on the field this week away from the Seahawks and fined them $300,000 for what it deemed was too much contact in offseason workouts in 2014.
I'll run down who is on the field doing what throughout the afternoon. And we are expecting quarterback Russell Wilson and coach Pete Carroll to speak after practice.
Aaron Wilson out of Baltimore reports -- seemingly from the agent -- that Tarvaris Jackson's new contract for 2015 the Seahawks announced this week gives the veteran backup to Wilson is worth $1.25 million guaranteed, $1.5 million total plus a signing bonus of $250,000.
The 32-year-old who was 7-7 as the Seahawks' starter in 2011 -- the year before Wilson arrived -- earned $1.1 million last year.
