The track record for Seahawks players negotiating their own deals with the team isn’t a good one.
Wagner told Omar Ruiz of NFL Network that he hasn’t yet opened serious negotiations on a new deal.
“I want to retire a Seahawk, but I understand it’s a business,” Wagner said. “I’m preparing like this is my last year as a Seahawk. If it is, I want to make sure I go out with a bang and make sure I give the city something to remember.”
The 28-year-old Wagner is entering the final year of his deal, and working something out will be easier with Frank Clark out of the way. But until he actually works out a deal, it’s reasonable to wonder if he will.
