In the statement issued by the team and read by a team spokesman, the Seahawks said "At this point it's important for Malik to stay home and rest. We consider this a long-term relationship and will do whatever is in the best interest of Malik."
"I've always been in competition with myself," Rawls said Friday as the Seahawks wrapped up OTAs. "I just believe that this program, this whole organization has a mindset of competition. We believe that as long as people compete they will earn whatever they deserve. In the end, it'll work itself out."
