Up next for Seahawks Ring of Honor No. 4: Bobby Wagner

OK, cheating a bit with this one. While Pete Carroll and John Schneider are also currently working for the Seattle Seahawks, it likely will take a coach and a general manager longer to get inducted into the Ring of Honor than a player. I would also love it if K.J. Wright, Bobby Wagner's linebacker mate for so many years, would make it into the Ring as well, but Wagner needs to get there first.

Heck, I wouldn't even complain if Wagner got in the year after he retired. He is currently signed to a one-year deal, but he is still playing at a high level. It could be Wagner plays so well in 2023 that Seattle brings him back in 2024 too. But let's see how this season plays out first.

Wagner isn't just arguably the best linebacker to ever play for the team, he could be the best overall player. He is a six-time first-team All-Pro and a three-time second-team All-Pro. Wagner has only played 11 seasons in the NFL so in nine of those years he was a first- or second-team All-Pro. Wagner had led the league in tackles twice and in solo tackles once.

Wagner is the all-time Seattle leader in combined tackles. He is also 16th in sacks which seems odd as one doesn't think of Wagner blitzing quarterbacks that much. But that just proves more his greatness. He does so many things well some of his production can be overlooked. But whatever year Wagner leaves Seattle (hopefully retiring a Seahawk and not going to another team again), the season after he needs to be inducted into the Ring of Honor.
