Last year, two cornerstone members of the Seahawks left the organization. This year, one of them is coming back.

Per multiple reports, linebacker Bobby Wagner is returning to Seattle on a one-year, $7 million deal.

The Seahawks cut Wagner last year. He signed a contract with the Rams. It was due to pay him $11 million this year. The Rams released him, calling it a mutual decision, earlier this month.

The first word of Wagner’s deal came from teammate Quandre Diggs, who beat the group-text Twitter thumb racers to the punch.

Wagner, who turns 33 in June, was a second-round pick of the Seahawks in 2012. He spent 10 years in Seattle.

Now, the eight-time Pro Bowler and six-time All-Pro is back.

  1. B Wags… back home where you always belonged. Not to say it, but he has no agent.

  2. If Brad Holmes would’ve made this signing it would’ve been unreal. I’m sure we tried but it’s obvious Wagner probably still lives in Seattle still, and calls it his second home. That and Seattle somehow didn’t have to go through a rebuilding process, and just worked through it and still a very good team.

  3. Bwagz will get the loudest response ever when he’s introduced on the field in Seattle!

    Not to say it, but he acts like a Mature Adult……

  5. Not a Seahawk fan but happy he returned to where he belongs. While he played well last year, he just didn’t look right in a Ram uniform.

  6. Bobby Wagner is a legend. This makes so much sense, probably our weakest position groups outside of NT.

    Welcome home, hopefully he can finish his career a Seahawk.

  7. Oh hail yes, LOB2 coming with Big Wally Style at pick 5. AZ will trade down with LV.

  8. Just a feel good moment. $7M is a fair price, but it’s not about money. It’s about the Cap. This is Just awesome.

    Literally PFF’s #1 rated LB last year.

  11. Love to see this guy go home where he belongs. HOF all the way. Finish it out with a young strong team!!

  12. So glad he’s coming back home. This is a great reunion, and hopefully he’ll finish his career here.

  13. Seattle brass already backtracking on their “vision” from last season. While on a 1 year deal means at least Bobby won’t have to go through getting released without being informed by the team again.

  14. Good lesson for us all here, don’t burn your bridges when leaving an employer.

  15. Wow…they really needed someone reliable to take Jordyn Brooks spot…No doubt Wagner will be teaching some young pups how to play linebacker this year….
