Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Wednesday, July 31 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Wagner At No. 15
From No. 21 to No. 15, Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner moved up from last year’s ranking in NFL Network’s countdown list. The timing couldn’t have been any better after having a hot start at 2019 training camp and recently signing a multi-year contract extension.
This is the ninth year that current players in the league have voted to determine the top 100 players in the NFL. The series on NFL Network counts down the top players in the League as determined solely by the players themselves.
“This is what I do!” The first line from the Super Bowl XLVIII champ in the segment produced by NFL Network. From running backs to wide receivers to linebackers, players all across the NFC and AFC were featured in the video speaking on Wagner and his performance on the field. San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner said, “Obviously, he [is] one of the best tacklers in the league, if not the best.”
It’s one thing to listen to a fellow linebacker speak on Wagner, but it’s another to hear from one of his opponents on the other side of the ball. Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen mentioned, “He can do anything; play the coverage, play man-on-man, east-to-west. It’s hard to get around somebody like that. [I have] a lot of respect for that guy.”
Be sure to tune in to NFL Network tonight at 6:00 p.m. PT to see the top 10 players on the Network’s list in a special two-hour edition of the show. Following the special, The Top 100 Players of 2019 Reaction Show will air on NFL at 8:00 p.m. PT.
