RENTON, WASH. (AP) - Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says it’s time for Russell Okung’s agents to act now that the No. 6 overall draft pick has missed the first three practices of training camp.

Carroll said Sunday after his replacement for retired All-Pro left tackle Walter Jones missed another workout that the deal should already be done given that the No. 5 and No. 7 picks have signed.

Carroll says missing the first days of camp works “immeasurably against” the rookie.

The coach who also has executive vice president powers in personnel with the Seahawks says the team is ready to get the contract done right away. He adds “it’s pretty clear how this should work: They have to pick up the phone.”

Eric Berry got $34 million guaranteed from Kansas City as the fifth pick. Seventh overall choice Joe Haden received $26 million guaranteed from Cleveland.
