The Seahawks have agreed to a one-year, $7 million deal with LB Bobby Wagner, according to multiple reports. This is a high-upside landing spot for Wagner, who became a cap casualty just a year after signing in free agency with the Rams. He returns to a Seattle LB corps that let starter Cody Barton walk in free agency. Incumbent Jordyn Brooks is coming off a Week 17 ACL tear, which could challenge his readiness for the start of the 2023 NFL season. That all means Wagner could open the year as the Seahawks top fantasy LB, with upside well into the position's top 10. We'll keep an eye on the whole situation through the summer.

The Rams have agreed to a 5-year, $50 million deal with LB Bobby Wagner, according to multiple reports. The pact has a reported max value of $65 million. We'd be surprised if the veteran LB sticks with L.A. for 5 years and the contract gets anywhere close to either of those numbers. But the Rams clearly want Wagner to be their top off-ball LB for at least the next year or 2. This move should keep Wagner well within LB1 range for IDP drafts in 2022.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Seahawks have told LB Bobby Wagner that they're releasing him. It's not a shocking move for a couple of reasons. First, it saves Seattle $16.6 million in cap space in 2022. Second, the Seahawks' trade of QB Russell Wilson to Denver signals at least somewhat of a rebuild. This was to be the final year on Wagner's contract. The 32-year-old (in June) remains a productive player and is sure to land another gig -- assuming he wants to continue playing. Cody Barton might be a candidate to replace Wagner, but we'd bet on the team also bringing in more at LB via free agency or the NFL Draft.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner sprained the MCL and PCL in his right knee in Sunday's win over the Lions, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wagner will miss the regular-season finale, but the injury is not expected to affect him beyond that.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner suffered a knee injury early in Sunday's win over the Lions and did not return. We'll see about his outlook for Week 18, but Seattle has nothing to play for in the finale -- other than potentially damaging Arizona's playoff seed.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that LB Bobby Wagner sustained a bruised knee in last Thursday night's loss to the Rams, according to ESPN. Wagner was on the sideline when the team resumed practicing Monday. We'll see about his status throughout the week.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters after Sunday's win over the Panthers that MLB Bobby Wagner suffered an ankle sprain late in the game. We'll see whether that threatens Wagner's availability for Week 16. S Quandre Diggs also sprained an ankle in the game. He's not much of an IDP factor for most leagues.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner had platelet-rich plasma therapy on a knee over the weekend, according to the Tacoma News Tribune, with a source describing the situation as "nothing major." HC Pete Carroll also downplayed the procedure, which several Seattle players have had in recent seasons. "He's done it a couple times before, and it's something that has been successful for him," Carroll said. "We felt like this was the time to do it." Carroll added that Wagner will likely see some preseason action at some point and might take part in the team's 2nd exhibition. The Seahawks will open their preseason Thursday against the Broncos. We're not concerned about Wagner's IDP outlook for the regular season.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner said he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Wagner missed Monday night's loss in Chicago with a groin injury despite playing every defensive snap in Week 1. We'll obviously watch to confirm that he'll be good to go, but IDP owners should expect to have the stud LB back in fantasy football lineups for Week 3.

The Seahawks have ruled MLB Bobby Wagner out for Monday night's game at Chicago. He missed practice all week with a groin injury. Weak-side LB K.J. Wright (ankle) will also miss his 2nd straight game. That leaves a potential tackle bonanza for rookie LB Shaquem Griffin. It also creates an attractive rushing setup for Bears RB Jordan Howard.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner and OLB K.J. Wright did not practice Friday because of injuries. Wright missed Week 1 following a preseason knee procedure. Wagner has a groin issue, despite playing every snap in the Week 1 loss to the Broncos. We'll see about their status following Saturday's practice, ahead of the Monday night game in Chicago.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Wagner has been dealing with the issue for weeks but returned to 100% playing time for last Sunday's win over the Cowboys. We'd bet on his playing time being just fine -- barring some re-injury.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner (hamstring) is active for today's game against the 49ers, as expected. Use him as you normally would in IDP lineups.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers after missing practice with a hamstring issue all week. But HC Pete Carroll indicated Friday that Wagner should play, according to the team website. We'll confirm his status Sunday afternoon when then late-game inactives come out, but expect to have the stud LB available.

Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is probable for Thursday night's game against the 49ers after putting in a full practice Wednesday. He missed Week 6 with a pectoral injury. Go ahead and use Wagner as you normally would in your IDP lineup. LB K.J. Wright brings a lower ceiling back as his normal outside spot than he did in the middle last week.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that he's "pretty hopeful" MLB Bobby Wagner will be ready to play Thursday night against the 49ers, according to the Seattle Times. Wagner missed Sunday's loss to the Panthers with a pectoral injury he suffered late in Week 5. K.J. Wright played the middle in Wagner's absence, with Kevin Pierre-Louis stepping in on the weak side. They each tallied 11+ total tackles against Carolina (with 3 solos apiece) and would be worth a look in IDP leagues against the Niners.
