The cap-strapped Los Angeles Rams sent another big-named star to the free agent market last week when they released Bobby Wagner. Unsurprisingly, the future Hall of Famer is rapidly garnering plenty of interest.

According to a report from Jordan Schultz of theScore, the Los Angeles Chargers and Dallas Cowboys are among the clubs that “have called” Wagner. Schultz added that a reunion with the Seattle Seahawks is also a possibility.

Bobby Wagner’s market is heating up and several teams have reached out, sources tell @theScore.

I’m told the #Chargers and #Cowboys have called, among others. Don’t rule out a return to the #Seahawks either for the future first ballot Hall of Fame LB.

Wagner spent his first 10 NFL seasons with the Seahawks, who drafted him 47th overall back in 2012. Seattle released Wagner in a cost-cutting move last offseason, and he went on to sign with the defending Super Bowl champions.

Wagner had a productive season in his first year with the Rams, but the organization has decided to make considerable changes after a disastrous 5-12 season, also releasing standout linebacker Leonard Floyd. The club is also expected to trade away All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey, a mainstay on their Super Bowl championship club.

The 32-year-old Wagner, who led the Seahawks to a Super Bowl 48 championship nine years ago, has 29.5 career sacks to go along with 13 interceptions, 65 pass defenses and six forced fumbles.

Both the Cowboys (12-5) and Chargers (10-7) qualified for the postseason in 2022, falling in the Divisional Round and Wild Card Round, respectively. Adding an eight-time Pro Bowler like Wagner to either defense would only help bolster the Cowboys’ or Chargers’ Super Bowl chances.
