With NFL free agency getting underway this week, we’re starting to learn about the future of some players.

One such player is Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner.

Wagner, who returned to the Seahawks for the 2023 season and set a new career high in tackles after spending 2022 with the Los Angeles Rams, is unlikely to return to Seattle, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Wagner was drafted by the Seahawks in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft and spent the first ten seasons of his career with the team, winning Super Bowl XLVIII and being named a First Team All-Pro six times. His 1,566 tackles as a Seahawk are the most in team history, by far.

The future Hall of Famer was released by Seattle following the 2021 season and signed a five-year deal with the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams. He recorded five sacks with 140 tackles with the Rams before being released by a mutual agreement in March 2023 and rejoining the Seahawks.

With the 33-year-old Wagner coming off a career year and seeming rejuvenated and seemingly ageless, he should have plenty of interest in the free-agent market. He may even end up with another Seahawks division rival, as the San Francisco 49ers feel like a natural fit for the linebacker.
