Russell Wilson won’t be present at the Seahawks’ workout today.

Just don’t read anything into his absence from the voluntary workout. He’s with tight end Jimmy Graham tending to a personal matter. Tuesday’s workout is optional so there’s no need for permission to miss the workout. The team is aware of the situation.

O’Neil: Five things to watch as Seahawks head into OTAs

Wilson’s absence has nothing to do with the contract negotiations that are going on for an extension and everything to do with him being a good teammate for Graham, who was acquired this offseason from New Orleans.

With Wilson out, B.J. Daniels and R.J. Archer will be the quarterbacks or today’s workout.

Defensive end Cliff Avril will also miss Tuesday’s workout as he’s tending to a family situation.

O’Neil: When Seahawks decide not to extend players, they’re rarely wrong

If you think the Seahawks must sign Duane Brown to an extension, when's the last time they opted against re-signing someone and it came back to bite them?
