Shortly after Bobby Wagner was released by the Seahawks earlier this month, word surfaced that other teams in the NFC West were interested in signing the veteran linebacker.

Nothing materialized immediately, but it looks like things may be developing with one of those teams. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Wagner is visiting the Rams on Wednesday. It’s the first known visit for Wagner since his release.

The report adds that there’s mutual interest in a deal that would fit with the Rams’ history of big-name additions to the roster in recent seasons.

Ernest Jones, Travin Howard, and Christian Rozeboom are the inside linebackers currently on Los Angeles’ roster. Troy Reeder remains a free agent.

  1. The Rams were planning on drafting him but got cute trading back a few picks with Chicago thinking he’d still be there. Better late than never, I hope the can get it done, he’d be an instant upgrade to the ILB corps.

  2. Ouch. That hurts. Still love Bobby though. Guy is about as consistently good as you can possibly be. If the Rams get him, they’ll be better because of it. And Bobby Wagner will get cheered (yes, and booed) anytime he sets foot on the field in Seattle. I hope the Rams pay him well.

  3. Bobby is a Seahawks legend and I pray he doesn’t stay in the NFC West (unless he comes back to Seattle)!

  4. Class act…future hall of famer…. gonna miss him but at least I’ll get to see him play twice a year! Wish him nothing but the best….It’ll be a cool day when the Hawks retire his number and place him in the Ring of Honor….

  5. OK there’s a few teams that there’s NO WAY they’re under or anywhere close to being under the cap, they resemble the 49er’s of 1994-99 who cheated on the cap for years before the NFL did anything about it!

  6. He’s still a decent LB but the issue is he makes all his tackles 5 yards off the LOS now… used to be at or behind the LOS.

  7. Because of their cap situation, the Rams cannot offer much. I don’t think Wagner is a particularly good fit in their defensive scheme either.

    A ring in LA means mess than a ring in Cinci and a lot of other places.
    You know this how? I haven’t forgotten how you “guaranteed” that Raheem Morris would become the head coach of the Rams within one week post SB. We’re at five weeks now. Didn’t happen.

  9. #54 same as Chris Spielman and they have a lot in common. Tacking machines, fundamentals, play hard & play clean. Off the field stand up guys & class act.

  10. Another Superstar wanting to play in the greatest city in the world. It’s not even fair.

  11. Sorry. But there’s a reason no on has signed him after all this time.

  12. He’s still a decent LB but the issue is he makes all his tackles 5 yards off the LOS now… used to be at or behind the LOS.

    He’s never had a player like Aaron Donald lined up in front of him.
