Oct 13 - 12:41 PM

Seahawks signed MLB Bobby Wagner to a four-year, $43 million extension through 2019.

With so much money now committed to players at the top of their roster, GM John Schneider is going to have to stay hot in upcoming drafts. Wagner was entering a contract year, and might have been a franchise-tag candidate in 2016. The 25-year-old is a three-down Mike 'backer with 100-plus tackles in three straight seasons. 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. He also has nine career sacks and five interceptions.

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.

Wagner finished fifth out of 60 qualified inside linebackers in PFF's 2014 grades.
Jun 8 - 2:37 PM

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.

May 16 - 5:51 PM

ESPN's John Clayton expects MLB Bobby Wagner to command at least $8 million annually on his next contract.

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.
