The Seattle Seahawks have made a number of shocking moves this offseason in what looks like a full rebuild for the organization, trading star quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos as well as releasing eight-time Pro-Bowl linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wagner’s release was even more shocking than Wilson’s trade considering there were rumors of Wilson being traded for quite some time now. The veteran linebacker had been the model of consistency at his position, making the Pro Bowl in eight straight seasons for the team.

Since his release, Wagner has been linked with potentially joining the Dallas Cowboys and reuniting with defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, who was his defensive coordinator in two seasons in Seattle. It now appears there is a new team emerging as a possible landing spot for Wagner. Ian Rapoport has reported that Wagner is visiting with the Los Angeles Rams and that there is mutual interest from both sides on a potential deal.

This news certainly has the NFL world talking and many think this could be the move that helps the Rams repeat as Super Bowl champions next season.

On paper, it seems like a perfect fit, assuming the Rams can make the money work. The Rams have been lacking at the inside linebacker position for years, and Wagner could complete their already scary defense.

This would certainly be a huge blow to Seahawks fans, who would have to live with the fact that their team released possibly the best defensive player they have ever had just for him to sign with a division rival.

It will certainly be something to monitor as this could have huge implications for the rest of the league with the Rams looking to go back-to-back next season.
