Veteran linebacker Bobby Wagner has been a free agent for three weeks, and so far there doesn’t appear to be a team willing to meet his asking price. But multiple teams are interested, at the right price.

Rams coach Sean McVay confirmed today that his team does have interest in Wagner.

McVay called Wagner a “special player” and described the Rams as “definitely interested” while also saying that Wagner had generated interest from other teams and had to weigh his own options.

It seems unlikely that the Rams would give Wagner the one-year, $11 million contract he is reportedly seeking, as the Rams don’t have a lot of salary cap space. But McVay wants to make it clear that there’s a roster spot available in Los Angeles for Wagner if he wants it.

  1. Rams need a someone good to play next to Ernest Jones, but I don’t think we need a great player in that spot. It would be a luxury, like adding OBJ or Von Miller was last year. But the Rams aren’t really desperate with any position group, so maybe they sign him. Can he punt? We need a punter.

    Von Miller wasn’t a luxury, he was the reason you guys held the trophy.

    As someone who watched every down of Rams football this past season, I think you’re dead wrong. The Rams pass rush was at the top of the league before Von came on board. And it actually didn’t improve that much after he joined. He was a key component, for sure, but hardly the reason.
