The Seattle Seahawks locked up quarterback Russell Wilson to an extension. Now, the team would like to do the same with linebacker Bobby Wagner.
Seahawks general manager John Schneider said he plans on getting a deal done with Wagner. Instead of being represented by an agent, Wagner will work the deal himself with Schneider.
Wagner will attempt to get a deal in the neighborhood of C.J. Mosley. He signed a deal with the New York Jets worth $17 million per season.
In March, he signed a five-year, $85 million deal with the Jets. Mosley received $51 million guaranteed.
The 28-year-old Los Angeles, California native was a second-round draft pick by the Seahawks in the 2012 NFL Draft. He has spent the last seven seasons with the team.
According to Spotrac, Wagner is due to make $14 million during the 2019 season. Then, he is slated to become a free agent before the 2020 season.
The $14 million is the third-highest salary for the Seahawks on the 2019 season. Frank Clark is slated to make $17 million on a franchise tag in 2019.
Wilson is slated to make $26.2 million before his four-year deal kicks in for the 2020 season.
This past season, Wagner had 138 tackles, including six tackles for a loss, and eight quarterback hits. He also had 1.0 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 11 pass deflections.
