The legend of Bobby Wagner: LA Rams chapter

It’s truly challenging to try to capture all of the many benefits the LA Rams team has gotten by signing a true NFL player’s player like veteran inside linebacker Bobby Wagner. The guy delivers so much on the football field, as much if not more in the locker room, and then even more off the football field. Bobby Wagner is a class act, a person who is someone who is all about character.

Even when he played for the Seattle Seahawks, Bobby Wagner was highly respected. But now that he competes for the LA Rams, there is so much to love about the guy. So where do I start? How about the fact that Bobby Wagner leads the team with 133 tackles in 16 games, and stands just 10 tackles away from setting the LA Rams All-Time Single Season tackle record of 142 tackles set by James Laurinaitis in 2011 and matched by Laurinaitis in 2012. That is a pretty impressive mark for Wagner, considering that this has been his first season in this defense.

More than a tackle machine

But Wagner is more than just a tackle machine. in 2022, he has recorded six quarterback sacks, which is more than OLB Von Miller recorded for the LA Rams in the regular season in 2022, which was five quarterback sacks in 2021. At six sacks, Wagner holds the runner-up spot on the team. His two interceptions tie him for the second place too. And five pass defenses are another way he has helped the team.

The guy does it all, without fuss or controversy. And he has been an excellent mentor for second-year linebacker Ernest Jones, who is the only other LA Rams defender to break 100 tackles by Week 17, currently with 109 tackles.

The LA Rams season was not the type that leaves fans feeling great. But the last game of the season can end the season with a pleasant taste. And for these eight players, a great game can me so much more.
