Bobby Wagner: Spoiling Seattle’s Postseason Hopes ‘Worth Playing For’

Los Angeles Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner will play as an opponent at Lumen Fied for the first time on Sunday.

Bobby Wagner is a Seattle Seahawks legend turned nemesis after his ignominious release from the team in March. 

He is Seattle’s all-time leading tackler and was the last remaining member of the 2014 Super Bowl winning ‘Legion of Boom’ defense. Bobby Wagner was named a first-team All-Pro six times and made eight Pro Bowls as a Seahawks player.

The organization botched his release with the linebacker finding out about the decision before anyone spoke to him.

Both Pete Carroll and John Schneider have publicly taken responsibility for the mishap and apologized to Wagner.

However, it’s not enough to balm the wounds for Wagner who wants to spoil Seattle’s party every chance he gets. He produced his best performance of the season against the Seahawks in Week 13 despite being on the losing side.

Now he returns to Lumen Field, where he sustained an injury during his final Seahawks appearance. He has the chance to scupper Seattle’s postseason campaign and break the Rams’ single-season record for tackles with 10 upon his return.

“For me, my last time I played there wasn’t a great one,” Wagner said. “So, I’m just blessed to be able to have an opportunity to not have that be my last play at that field.”

“It’s going into a stadium I’ve been thousands of times, played hundreds of times,” Wagner said Wednesday. “To be in a position to spoil their playoff hopes is always a good position, something worth playing for. And it will be fun to go back there, be back in front of those fans that I spent so much time [around]. And it should be a fun game.”
