Wagner played in Seattle for the first ten seasons of his NFL career, earning nominations to eight Pro Bowls and six All-Pro games.
After the Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl in 2022, he left his longstanding team to join them, albeit only for a single season.

The Seahawks, Wagner's former team, made a postseason push this past season, despite the fact that the 32-year-old left Seattle to pursue a championship in Los Angeles.
The Rams went 5-12 and missed the playoffs despite the veteran linebacker having a typically strong season.
In his one season with the Rams, Wagner—a Seattle Seahawks second-round pick—made 140 tackles, 6.0 sacks, and two interceptions.
Wagner is a Seattle Seahawks fan favorite, so the team's supporters will no doubt be happy to see him return.
