The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to extend linebacker Bobby Wagner contract just a day after agreeing to a four-year extension with Russell Wilson, according to former player Michael Robinson. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that Wagner is expected to sign his deal tonight. His deal will be worth $43 million over four-years, according to Garafolo. Wagner’s new contract will start next season and will keep him in Seattle through the 2019 season.
Wagner, 25, missed five games last season with a turf toe injury, but the All-Pro linebacker still racked up 135 tackles during the regular season.
