Wagner registered 13 tackles (seven solo) and a forced fumble in Sunday's 30-16 loss to the Ravens.
This is the third time in five games Wagner posted double-digit stops, and it was his first forced fumble of the year. He now has 69 tackles and is tied for second with Jordan Hicks for the most tackles behind only Blake Martinez (76). Wagner continues to be a premier IDP option.
Wagner made seven solo tackles -- one for a loss -- in Sunday's 32-28 win over the Browns.
Wagner hasn't missed a defensive snap over six games, and he leads the Seahawks with 57 tackles (33 solo) on the season, an average of 9.5 per game. The veteran linebacker continues to be a premier IDP option as long as he's flying around the field like this.
Wagner posted 11 tackles (six solo) in Sunday's 27-10 win over the Cardinals.
Wagner hasn't missed a defensive snap this season and has compiled 30 tackles over the last two weeks. Through four games, he's recorded 45 tackles, putting him on pace for a whopping 180 stops. That's likely to regress a bit, but it's not an unreachable achievement for Wagner, as he posted 167 in 2016.
Wagner made 18 tackles (four solo) in Sunday's loss to the Saints.
The Seahawks struggled immensely to take down Saints RB Alvin Kamara, which is likely why Wagner had so many assisted tackles. It's still a spectacular stat line for the team's defensive captain, and it should turn heads in the IDP realm. Wagner will look to bring this momentum into Week 4's game versus the Cardinals, and he'll likely be counted on in coverage often against the Air Raid offense.
Wagner recorded nine tackles (seven solo) across 77 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Bengals.
The pulse of the Seahawks defense, Wagner was all over the field Sunday. He had the second-most tackles on the team and played every defensive snap in the contest.
Wagner (leg) notched two tackles during Saturday's preseason tilt against the Chargers.
Wagner was working his way back from platelet-injection therapy in his leg leading up to Saturday's contest, but appears to have gotten fully healthy. All signs point to Wagner suiting up in his usual starting role Week 1.
Wagner (leg) was a limited participant in Friday's practice, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Wagner did not participate in team drills Friday, but he worked in a limited capacity. The starting linebacker is recovering from = platelet-injection therapy in his leg. Wagner is expected to be ready to go by Week 1, but his status for preseason action remains up in the air.
Wagner (leg) participated in Friday's practice, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
It's unclear whether or not Wagner was considered a full participant Friday, but it is a great sign for the linebacker's health after he underwent platelet-injection therapy in his leg just under two weeks ago. The Seahawks have no reason to overwork Wagner over the next few weeks, so look for the team to just do whatever is necessary to make sure he is ready for the start of the regular season.
Wagner (leg) is expected to be ready to go by Week 1, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Wagner underwent platelet-rich plasma therapy in his leg Monday. While the veteran linebacker is expected to be sidelined for a significant amount of time, coach Pete Carroll expressed confidence that Wagner would be fully available for Seattle's regular-season opener versus the Bengals. In the meantime, expect Austin Calitro and Ben Burr-Kirven to see an increase in reps during practice and preseason contests.
Coach Pete Carroll said Wagner (undisclosed) underwent "a little procedure" recently, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.
The exact nature of the surgery is unknown, but Wagner tended to hamstring injuries during both the 2014 and 2018 preseasons. That's not to say the current issue is affecting one of Wagner's hamstrings, but Carroll was coy as always regarding the health of one of his players. As evidence, Carroll stated that Wagner "could likely" make an appearance during the upcoming exhibition schedule, but more than likely he'll remain sidelined until the regular season considering the $54 million extension handed to the middle linebacker in late July.
Wagner and the Seahawks agreed to terms on a three-year, $54 million extension Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
While Wagner was expected to report to training camp, he wasn't expected to participate in any practices until a deal was reached. The 29-year-old wanted a contract that would make him the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league, taking the title away from the Jets' C.J. Mosley and his contract that pays him $17 million per season. Rapoport also reported Friday that Wagner's deal includes $40.2 million in guarantees.
Wagner is expected to report to Seattle for the start of training camp, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
On the heels of linebacker C.J. Mosley getting a contract worth $17 million annually from the Jets back in March, Wagner's representatives and the Seahawks have been holding talks on an extension. Despite the impasse, he attended the offseason program and will do the same with season preparations about to kick off. Having said that, the 29-year-old is expected to stay off the practice field until a deal is reached.
Wagner and the Seahawks are still in talks regarding a contract extension, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.
Wagner has made his intentions clear this offseason: he wants to be the highest-paid inside linebacker in the league, a distinction currently held by the Jets' C.J. Mosley. With Mosley's deal paying him $17 million annually, Wagner has been asking for a number north of that. Wagner was still present at Seattle's recent OTAs and even went on to lead the defense and coach up the young players from the sideline, though he refused to participate in drills himself. At this point in the offseason, an agreement between the two sides doesn't seem imminent.
Wagner will not participate in OTAs until he receives a contract extension, Liz Mathews of USA Today reports.
2019 will be the final year on Wagner's current four-year deal, and the 28-year-old has previously told Omar Ruiz of NFL Network that he's "preparing like this is my last year as a Seahawk." Seattle has cap space after trading Frank Clark -- even after giving a record-breaking deal to quarterback Russell Wilson -- and Wagner hopes to get an extension that beats fellow inside linebacker C.J. Mosley's haul of a five-year, $85 million deal. Wagner has said that he will still be present at Seattle's OTAs and that he will still lead the defense and coach up the young players from the sidelines; he just won't participate himself.
Wagner has not been contacted regarding a contract extension, contradicting an earlier report by head coach Pete Carroll suggesting the linebacker was in negotiations with the team, Omar Ruiz of NFL Network reports.
Wagner suggested he's "preparing like this is my last year as a Seahawk," which certainly doesn't sound like a comment someone in position for a contract extension would make. With just one-year remaining on Wagner's previous four-year deal, it's quite possible the cash-strapped Seahawks may be unable to retain the services of their inside linebacker, especially after a number of linebackers, including C.J. Mosley, received monster deals during the offseason.
Coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks and Wagner have opened discussions on a contract extension, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.
Arguably the best off-ball linebacker in the league, Wagner is a superior player to C.J. Mosley, who recently joined the Jets on a five-year, $85 million deal that includes $43 million fully guaranteed. Mosley's contract leaves the Seahawks in a tricky spot, with their 28-year-old superstar linebacker entering the final year of a four-year, $43 million extension. After averaging 146.3 tackles, 6.7 passes defensed, 2.3 sacks and 1.3 interceptions over the past three seasons, Wagner surely expects that his next contract will be comparable to Mosley's or perhaps even a bit larger. Carroll believes the re-signing of outside linebacker K.J. Wright will help smooth negotiations with Wagner.
Wagner made five tackles in Saturday's playoff loss to the Cowboys.
Wagner averaged 8.7 tackles per game during the regular season, so this was a steep dip to finish off the year. The Seahawks' defensive captain has combined for 438 tackles over the last three years and ranks as the No. 1 linebacker in the league, according to Pro Football Focus. Wagner has one more year left on his contract, and he recently told Gregg Bell of The News Tribune that he's willing to play the 2019 season without a contract extension.
Wagner made 12 tackles (nine solo) in the season finale versus the Cardinals.
Wagner logged double-digit stops for the sixth time in the last nine games, locking in a third straight season with over 130 tackles. It was another dominating campaign for Wagner in pass coverage as well, as he logged a career-high 11 breakups and returned his lone interception for a touchdown. Wagner's next task will be slowing down Cowboys' running back Ezekiel Elliott in the wild-card playoff round Saturday.
Wagner posted 12 tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 38-31 win over the Chiefs.
Wagner dominated as a run-stopper during Sunday's primetime win and logged his fifth game of the season with at least 12 total tackles. The veteran linebacker remains a focal point of Seattle's defense, as well as a coveted IDP asset.
Wagner racked up 12 tackles, one sack, two pass breakups, a forced fumble and a pick-six in Sunday's win over the 49ers.
It's the fourth time in five games that Wagner made more than 12 stops, but this was his first sack and interception of the year. Wagner has been instrumental in helping the Seahawks win three straight games and remain firmly in the playoff conversation, and fantasy owners should utilize his edge in IDP settings.
