We are wrapping up what has been a hell of a week in the National Football League. Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson’s dominoes finally fell (Carson Wentz too, but obviously not the same), and it all happened before free agency even officially began.

That’s the way things work in the NFL these days. The Seattle Seahawks delivered perhaps the biggest shock when they traded the aforementioned Wilson who was the greatest quarterback in franchise history and apparently still has plenty of legitimate play.

Seattle drafted Russell in 2012 in the same class as Bobby Wagner, one of the best linebackers in the game since. The Seahawks released Wagner the same day they traded Wilson, which removed the last remaining players on their roster from their Super Bowl XLVIII victory.

Wagner is obviously a free agent now and can sign whoever he wants. Enter the Dallas Cowboys.

Dallas Cowboys contacted Bobby Wagner about potential reunion with Dan Quinn

For a very long time, the Dallas Cowboys kind of tried to become the Seahawks themselves by hiring Kris Richard and trying to recreate the Legion of Boom. It didn’t really work as we all know.

What has gone down well for the Cowboys is the arrival of chief defense architect LOB – former Seattle Seahawks defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. The Cowboys defense thrived in 2021 with Quinn in place of DC for the first time with young players like Micah Parsons and Trevon Diggs having campaigns that literally set all kinds of records.

As for Parsons, of course he is such a unique talent in that he can both play linebacker and rush the passer at a high level. The trade-off there is that when he does one, he can’t do the other, so if the Cowboys want him to chase quarterbacks more frequently in the future, they need to solidify the linebacker spot.

There wouldn’t be a veteran linebacker Dan Quinn knows well who played at a high level for a long time who would suddenly be available, would there? Of course it is, and his name is Bobby Wagner. According to ESPNthe Cowboys reached out to reunite him with the defensive coordinator who helped him win the only Super Bowl he has so far.

Needless to say, Wagner’s arrival would significantly strengthen the Cowboys’ linebacker spot and allow for greater mobility for Micah Parsons. Additionally, Wagner would bring with him the experience of being on a championship team and doing things the right way, something that could do a lot in the locker room of this young Dallas Cowboys unit, especially on the side. defensive of the ball as they continue to grow together.

The news comes on a remarkable day for the Cowboys defense, as it was reported earlier Friday that defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence is “not going anywhere.” keep it around and adding someone of Wagner’s quality would be a great start to the roster acquisition period and would really show that Dallas is taking their chances very seriously right now.

There are always rumors around free agency and always players who are linked to the Cowboys because, well, they are the Cowboys. Wagner isn’t going to play for cheap, and the Cowboys don’t exactly have a reputation for spending big, but it might just be the right combination of factors.
