Despite missing five games in which he was unable to compile plus grades, Wagner earned a top-five rating from Pro Football Focus among inside linebackers in 2014.

Jul 22 - 7:46 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is seeking "in the range of" $10 million per year on a contract extension.

Ten million annually would make Wagner the league's highest-paid inside linebacker. He deserves it. And according to La Canfora, the Seahawks see him worthy of that kind of money and the deal could come together "quick." Wagner has missed seven starts the past two seasons, but has been dominant when on the field, excelling across the board in run defense and coverage.

With Russell Wilson's contract talks stalled, the Seahawks have decided to reach out to Wagner instead.

Wagner finished fifth out of 60 qualified inside linebackers in PFF's 2014 grades.

Seahawks contract-year MLB Bobby Wagner is hoping to get a deal done "soon."

Seattle wants to extend Wagner before the season, but talks have been delayed due to Russell Wilson’s deal.

The Seahawks want to do a contract extension with MLB Bobby Wagner.

Wagner is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He'll have to wait until Russell Wilson's extension gets done before the team turns their attention elsewhere, but Wagner has certainly earned a new deal. He's started 40 games over the last three seasons, dominating against the run and finishing in the top-two of PFF's ILB grades twice.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (toe) will play in Week 12 against Arizona.

It's a huge boost to a Seattle defense that has battled myriad injuries this season. It's also bad news for Andre Ellington's Week 12 fantasy matchup.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 04:08:00 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said MLB Bobby Wagner (toe) could return for Week 12.

Wagner has resumed running and doing some lateral cutting after going down in Week 6. With run-stuffing DT Brandon Mebane (hamstring) done for the year, getting Wagner back will be welcomed.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is currently sporting a cast on his foot to address his turf toe.

Wagner's turf toe sounds particularly severe. On Friday, coach Pete Carroll admitted it was "problematic." Wagner has not undergone surgery, but sounds likely to miss multiple weeks. Seattle visits the Rams in Week 7.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is battling turf toe.

Wagner was hurt in the Week 6 loss to the Cowboys and played just 52-of-77 snaps after missing two snaps all season. The severity of Wagner's turf toe is unknown, and it's unclear when he'll return to the lineup. Look for either K.J. Wright or Malcolm Smith to man the middle while Wagner is out with Bruce Irvin playing more snaps. Wagner is arguably the league's best MIKE linebacker.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner averaged 10 total tackles per game over the final eight games of the regular season.

An ankle injury sidelined Wagner in Weeks 6 and 7, but he was a force in the middle for Seattle down the stretch. Only five players recorded more tackles than the 80 Wagner posted in the final eight weeks of the season - Paul Worrilow (110), Luke Kuechly (100), Vontaze Burfict (86), Lavonte David (84), and Paul Posluszny (81).

Speaking Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said MLB Bobby Wagner (ankle) is "way ahead of schedule," but declined to say he'd be ready for Monday's game against the Rams.

Thu, Oct 24, 2013 04:00:00 PM

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 7.

Wagner will miss his second straight game with the Seahawks playing on a short week. K.J. Wright will once again move over from weak-side linebacker to replace him in the starting lineup.
