Monday Round-Up: Bobby Wagner Makes's 'Indispensable' Defenders List

Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner made's list of the most indispensable defensive players in the league.

Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Monday, June 12 — about your Seattle Seahawks: 

Wagner Makes's "Indispensable" Defenders List's Adam Schein continued his annual list of the most indispensable players in the league, which focuses on the players teams can't live without. Schein's list does not include quarterbacks considering the value of the position.   

Seahawks All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner made the list at No. 8:

*It's tough to include any one Seahawks defender -- because you're inherently separating him from the sea of stars. I love Earl Thomas, who made the list last year. Richard Sherman is still great -- as is a healthy Kam Chancellor. And Michael Bennett is such a versatile talent up front. *

*But there's something special about Wagner, the only member of Seattle's defense to earn first-team All-Pro honors in 2016. He's the glue to this great D. Wagner is a star and a steady presence, something essential in Seattle with the volatility of certain personalities. *

Oakland's Khalil Mack, the 2016 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, was the top player on the list followed by Denver's Von Miller. The remainder of the list was made up as follows: Luke Kuechly (3), Aaron Donald (4), Vic Beasley (5), J.J. Watt (6), Tyrann Mathieu (7) and Fletcher Cox (9).
