How much will the star LB earn upon Seahawks return?
Bobby Wagner is back in Seattle! After spending one season away from the team during the 2022-2023 season, Wagner is returning to the Seahawks on a one-year deal for this upcoming season.
The deal is worth $7 million, according to NFL insider Jordan Schultz.
After spending the first 10 seasons of his career in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks (2012-2021), Wagner spent last season with the Los Angeles Rams. He signed a five-year deal worth up to $65 million. He was cut just one year into his contract with the Rams.
Seattle will get another great playmaker on defense in Wagner as he joins a playoff team from last season. The Rams made the move to free up cap space and get younger as they’re in the process of a rebuild.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Wagner is happy to be back in Seattle.
