Former Seattle Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner has reportedly signed a five-year, $50 million contract, with the potential of rising to $65 million, with the reigning Super Bowl champions, the Los Angeles Rams, as per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.

The 31-year-old spent 10 seasons with Seattle after the franchise had picked him in the second round, 47th overall, in the 2012 NFL Draft.

At the time, Wagner signed a four-year, $4.30 million contract, with $2.51 million guaranteed, and a signing bonus worth $1.57 million.

Since then, the LB helped the Seahawks win a Super Bowl title in 2014, where he had 10 combined tackles in a 43-8 rout of the Denver Broncos.

The following year, the eight-time Pro Bowler would help the team reach the Super Bowl again, but this time it was a tight 28-24 loss against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.

Wagner’s performances did not go unnoticed, as he was ranked 69th in the NFL’s Top 100 Players list in 2014.

Following the Seahawks’ massive lineup overhaul, and in order to free up some cap space, Seattle released Wagner to free agency earlier in March.

Additionally, Wagner is the second biggest new addition to the Rams, after former Chicago WR Allen Robinson’s three-year contract worth $46.5 million and $30.7 million guaranteed.

Parting ways with Seattle, Wagner played 151 total regular-season games, and had 1,383 tackles, 11 INTs, four defensive touchdowns, and 23.5 sacks.
