1. Bobby Wagner, LB
This move will sting for Seahawks fans, but there is uncertainty about the future of linebacker Bobby Wagner in Seattle.
Wagner has been a member of the Seahawks organization since he was drafted out of Utah State in 2012 as a second-round pick. The accolades speak for themselves. Wagner is an eight-time Pro Bowler, six-time All-Pro and a Super Bowl 48 champion.
This past season, Wagner recorded 170 combined tackles, five defended passes and one interception.
Now, Wagner is set to enter the final year of his three-year, $54 million contract. Wagner spoke about his uncertain future with the organization just prior to the end of the season, saying that he would like to stay. But, when considering he is entering his age-32 season and his cap hit of $20.4 million, the organization could choose to move on from him.
If the Seahawks are to cut or trade Wagner at any point this offseason, they will free up an additional $16.6 million. It will be a tough pill for the Seahawks to follow, but they may very well have to part ways from the longtime starting inside linebacker for the sake of cap space if that is their goal.
