Bobby Wagner has funny quote on awkwardness of negotiating his own deal

Bobby Wagner

Bobby Wagner was the rare player who opted to represent himself in contract negotiations with the Seattle Seahawks, and he succeeded in negotiating himself a three-year, $54 million extension.

There are consequences to negotiating for yourself, though. Even if you successfully make a deal, you’re working with your bosses directly instead of going through an intermediary. That can lead to awkward moments and perhaps some tension between the two sides.

Did that happen to Wagner? Apparently not, and the reason for that was that Twitter had prepared him for the moment.

Wagner hasn’t been afraid to take on high-profile teammates. Seahawks executives were no big deal.
