Bobby Wagner makes free agency decision

Bobby Wagner has signed with the Los Angeles Rams.

Wagner and the Rams agreed to a five-year, $50 million deal on Thursday, according to multiple reports. The veteran linebacker can earn up to $65 million with incentives.

While the exact contract details have not been released, that is a lot more money than Wagner was reportedly seeking. He was said to be looking for only a one-year deal.

Wagner was named an All-Pro for the eighth straight season last year. He had a career-high 170 total tackles with the Seattle Seahawks. He’s a huge pickup for the Rams after they lost Von Miller to the Buffalo Bills.

Wagner looks like he chose the Rams over one other team. He will now have an opportunity to face his former team twice a year in the NFC West. That may have made the Rams more appealing to Wagner, as he was openly unhappy with the way his tenure in Seattle ended.
