The Seattle Seahawks decided to trade Russell Wilson and release Bobby Wagner in the same week. Two pillars of the organization are gone, and the sharks are circling for Wagner.
Beofre we get to Wagner’s new team, he had something to say about his old stomping grounds.
The linebacker took to Twitter and called out the team for how he found about being released.
“Crazy part about all this. I played there for 10 years & I didn’t even hear it from them that I wasn’t coming back.”
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, every other team in the NFC West is interested in Wagner.
“He is going to get significant interest on the free agent market,” Rapoport said. “Do not be surprised if he actually stays in the division. There is already interest in Wagner from three times that he played against twice a year when he was in Seattle.”
Wagner not only got to 10 seasons, he spent those 10 years establishing himself as an all-time great linebacker, earning a team-record eight All-Pro selections, including six first-team nods, as well as eight Pro-Bowl selections.
