- Bobby Wagner wants his time with the Seattle Seahawks to be forgotten by others.
- Before deciding on the Rams, he was on the verge of signing with the Baltimore Ravens.
Six-time All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner was dismissed by the Seattle Seahawks earlier this offseason in a shocking move and has since been signed by the Super Bowl LVI-winning Los Angeles Rams.
Despite what others may assume, Wagner’s transfer to one of the Seahawks’ fiercest opponents is nothing personal to him, but that doesn’t mean he won’t give it his all.
“I don’t hold a lot of hatred in my heart.” I’ll make certain they are aware of my whereabouts.
According to the Seattle Times, Wagner Stated, “It Won’t Be a Quiet Game for Me”
Wagner was dismissed from the Seahawks as he approaches his 32nd season to save about $16.6 million in salary space, which sent the NFL into a frenzy.
The Baltimore Ravens were said to be on the verge of signing Wagner to bolster their faltering defense, but Wagner instead chose to join the Rams on a five-year, $65 million deal.
Although the Ravens gave Wagner a two-year, $36 million deal, NFL source Ian Rapoport just disclosed that the former Seahawk’s pact with the Rams featured higher incentives and let him stay in Los Angeles.

After losing Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller to the Buffalo Bills, Wagner has huge shoes to fill with the Rams.
The 31-year-ability old’s to stop the run and pressure the opposing quarterback on every down has made him one of, if not the most, sought-after free agents this offseason.
“The player took it personally, but the agent went to work,” said Wagner, who, like Ravens star Lamar Jackson, is also his own agent.
