Bobby Wagner expected to start at middle linebacker for Seahawks

When the Seahawks lost middle linebacker David Hawthorne in the offseason to the New Orleans Saints, middle linebacker became arguably their biggest need. They signed veteran Barrett Ruud, previously of the Tennessee Titans, and also used a 2nd round pick on Bobby Wagner out of Utah State. Ruud was once one of the most promising young linebackers in the league, but his promise was destroyed by injuries and he has bounced around the league from Tampa Bay to Tennessee to Seattle over the past few years.

Wagner has gotten the chance to work out at middle linebacker with the 1st team during OTAs with Ruud nursing yet another injury and according to the Tacoma News Tribune, he probably won’t let go of that starting job and will probably play on every down. He’ll play in between KJ Wright and LeRoy Hill at linebacker.
