This is the second earthquake in less than 12 hours in the city of Seattle, after the departure of Russell Wilson. Defense captain Bobby Wagner has been cut by the Seahawks! Announced by journalist Adam Schefter of ESPN, the information was confirmed by the franchise.
Chosen in the second round of the 2012 draft, one round before Wilson, Wagner has become one of the best linebackers of his generation. Eightfold Pro Bowler and All Pro (6 times in the first team), he has accumulated 1,383 career tackles, 23.5 sacks and 11 interceptions in particular.
A true leader, he is part of the team that won the Super Bowl by humiliating the Broncos in February 2014. If he did not initially have the same media treatment as the “Legion of Boom”, he imposed himself quickly like a pillar. Aged 31, he will have the opportunity to live a new experience in another franchise, and should not lack solicitations.
For Seahawks supporters, the heart will still be a little heavier after this second start, and the franchise confirms a total reconstruction.
